Addding Design Elements to Blocks with "Styles"

Drupal Version
Tags

If your site is using the GT Theme, and has had the custom Georgia Tech Page Layouts package installed, then when adding a new block, or editing an existing block, you can make your blocks look fancier than a standard Drupal block.  This is done by selecting a custom style via the checkboxes under the "STYLING" section at the bottom of any block configuration page.  The available styles are:

  • BLOCK STYLE: promo block
  • BLOCK STYLE: related info block
  • ICON: Information
  • ICON: Alert
  • ICON: Download
  • ICON: Link
  • ICON: Institution
  • ICON: Mortar Board
  • BLOCK TITLE: GT Gold
  • BLOCK TITLE: GT Blue
  • BLOCK TITLE: Gray

This style formats your block title on a transparent background and the rest of the block on a grey background with gold top and bottom borders.
