Additional Functions
Working with Tables
The built-in editor allows you to insert and edit tables. HTML tables—those on web pages—aren't very different from tables created in applications like Microsoft Word. Here you'll learn best practices for working with tables in the School of Medicine web system.
Table Examples

Sortable Tables
Learn how to make your tables sortable.
Styling Quotes
Block quotes and pull quotes (callouts) draw attention to quoted material on a page while simultaneously adding interest to the layout. This page explains the differences, and how to create them with the visual editor.
Buttons
Add stylized buttons to your pages.
Alert Boxes
Even though these stylized boxes are called alert boxes, they can be used to highlight any type of information (not just alerts).
Editing Preferences
By default the web system provides a visual editor that contains a toolbar with buttons similar to most word processing applications. It allows you to create and edit content for your web site with little HTML or CSS knowledge. You can however change your preferences so that editing can be done directly in the code (the HTML).
