Facts in Drupal

Posted May 29th, 2014 at 11:42 am.

Facts are brief facts about Bryn Mawr which may be displayed randomly in the right sidebar of a Page or Landing Page. See Bryn Mawr’s Promise for examples.

Adding:

Go to Content->Add Content->Fact

Administrative Title: Shown only to logged in Drupal users to help find your fact.

Image: Use Communications’ default lantern images designed to work with the Facts, or add your own image.

Numbers may be entered in a variety of formats, e.g. “99% of students like cupcakes,” “77 gazillion papers are written by Bryn Mawr students annually,” “2034.6 cups of tea per year are made on campus.”

Destination URL: Add this if you want visitors to be able to click on your fact to learn more.

Syndication:

  • Primary Section determines the section your fact “lives” in, and therefore its left navigation.
  • Secondary Section allows the fact to appear in additional relevant sections. For example, a Chemistry fact might also appear in the Biochemistry section.
  • Topics are additional terms determined by Communications that permit facts to appear in additional relevant locations– for instance, a page for Giving, or about STEM.
  • Upgrade to Premium- available only to Communications, this allows the fact to be promoted to aggregator pages.

Placement:

On Pages, use the Embedded Content tab to place individual facts or collections of facts for your section or topic.

Under “Embed a Story in this Page”, begin typing the Administrative Title of a single fact to embed it in your page.
