OC General templates

OC 2 Column:

  • 2-column page with a left-hand navigation menu and main content area.
  • Main image wrapped by WYSIWYG content (we recommend an image width of at least 480px).
  • Side panel content is displayed below the WYSIWYG content area.
  • Supporting links and documents are displayed under 'Related Information', below the WYSIWYG content area.

This template is useful for short pages, and your community will be able to quickly see and visit the other pages in the section.

OC 2 Column Without Image:

  • 2-column page with a left-hand navigation menu and main content area.
  • Side panel content is displayed below the WYSIWYG content. 
  • Supporting links and documents displayed under 'Related Information', below the WYSIWYG content.

This template is useful for pages that are an important part of a group, however, this template works better for pages that need more room for body content.

OC Full Width:

  • Full-width page area – no on-page navigation menu.
  • Main image wrapped by WYSIWYG content (we recommend an image width of at least 480px).
  • Side panel content appears in the right-hand column. If there is no side panel, the WYSIWYG content expands to full-width.
  • Supporting links and documents display under 'Related Information' in right- side column, below any side panel content.
    Note: if there is no side panel content, 'Related Information' falls below the WYSIWYG content area.

Use this template for pages with a lot of important WYSIWYG content and embedded content such as maps, videos, forms, or calendars. 

General page with Full Width template

OC Full Width Without Image:

  • Full-width page area – no on-page navigation menu.

  • Supporting links and documents display under 'Related Information' in the right-side column, below any side panel content.
    Note: if there is no side panel content, 'Related Information' falls below the WYSIWYG content area.

Use this template for pages with a lot of important WYSIWYG content and embedded content such as maps, videos, forms, or calendars.

Please note that all content in the right-hand side panel will fall below the main body content when viewed on a mobile or tablet device. Additionally, when general pages with a 2-column template are viewed on a mobile device, the left-hand navigation menu will not display.
