Contact Block

Contact Blocks

Contact blocks are located in the left sidebar region of a page and contain general contact information about the department or office. The information in the block repeats and lives on every page of the site.

Note: This block does not replace the standard "Staff" page. It's highly recommended for offices and departments to utilize general contact information in the Contact block, and keep individually staff information on a separate Staff page.

How to Edit

To edit the contact block, hover over the text. In the top right hand corner, a gear icon will appear.
