Protean: Block Content Particle

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Protean Demo for Grav


Introduction

The Block Content particle is a great way to create a clean and simple content block with images and text.

Here are the topics covered in this guide:

Configuration

Main Options

These options affect the main area of the particle, and not the individual items within. For example, if you want to display content that includes a title, headline, image, and link you can do so here, but if you want to display numerous individual items, each with their own text, images, and/or links, you can do so using the Block Items collection feature.

Option Description
CSS Classes Enter the CSS class(es) you want to use in the content of the particle.
Title Enter the title of the particle, as it will appear on the front end.
Icon Set the icon that appears next to the title.
Image Set a main image that appears separate from any Block Item images.
Headline Enter a headline you want to appear on the front end.
Description Enter the text you wish to have appear as the description for the particle. This text appears below the title and headline.
Button Label Customize the text you want to have appear in the link button.
Button Link Customize the link you want the link button to go to.
Button Classes Add CSS class(es) you would like to have apply to the button.
Target Set the target for the button. You can choose between Self which opens the link in the current tab or New Window which opens links in a new tab.

Item Options

These items make up the individual featured items in the particle. They sit apart from the particle's title, headline, image, and description. Each item can have its own properties, including images and written content.
