The content box is a very useful and simple media item to use. It provides an editable content field that may be given a background color, background image, or borders.

Content Box's most common use case is to bring attention to a block of content by adding a background color or border.

Basic Content Box

Incididunt proident velit laborum nisi veniam duis minim non voluptate.

  • Consectetur veniam cillum

  • Nulla in culpa do proident

  • Ex mollit laboris occaecat ipsum dolore id minim anim.

Background Images

Content box background images can have a few different scroll behaviors:

  • a normal background

  • an animated scroll where the image scrolls at a slower speed than the content

  • a fixed position where content scrolls over the image

The black box on top of the image was created using a two column media item with a black background on the right column.

Content Box Themes

You can use a Content Box Theme media item to create a styling that you would like to replicate and keep consistent over multiple content boxes. This can be useful for a consistent look for things like alerts, tips, etc.

Getting Creative

Content boxes are a great tool for customizing your pages. They are handy when composing more complex media items that contain multiple media items. For example, a Content Box could have an inner two columnlayout, which could contain yet another Content Box, and so on.
