Boxes Boxes Everywhere!

Adding boxes to your guide is key.

How else are you going to get your smarts out to the world??

We have many types of boxes...20+, in fact..

Woah...that's a lot! Which one should I use??

It all depends on the type of information you want to add to the box:

  • Just need text / images? Use a Rich Text Box.
  • Adding links? Use a Links Box.
  • Adding books? Use a Books from the Catalog Box.

More info about boxes:

  • We try to make it obvious what the box is for.
  • Every box has a rich text portion (the add text link at the top)...
  • ...but the functionality of the box is at the bottom. That's where you'll see Add New Link, Add New Box, Add RSS Feed, etc.
