CommonSpot Custom Element Examples

Homepage Banners

Purpose

The UW-Superior homepage has banners across the bottom that advertise various campus events, announcements, or important key links depending on the time of year. The homepage is managed by the University Relations Office and they needed an easy way to add new banners/buttons, but then automatically expire them on a certain date and defaulting to a predefined "back-up" button/link.

Management

  • So far the main use for this element is on the UW-Superior homepage and is managed by the University Relations Office.

Features

  • Website Editors can easily upload and assign a new button graphic and URL
  • The button can expire on a specified date, being replaced with a chosen "default" button - such as generic link to "Athletics" - this works well for promotions that advertise events on a weekend and the day after the event, the button gets removed and replaced with a generic "always appropriate" button/link without any staffing resources manually updating the link
  • Graphics can be any size
