Stories (Spotlights)

Main content start

Based on your feedback that you want to be able to highlight the people in your department more prominently throughout your website, our designer at SWS created the stories paragraph type. This will give you the ability to add spotlight stories to your web pages.

Note: We’ll use “spotlights” and “stories” interchangeably.

There will be an option to display multiple stories as a part of this Paragraph Type.

Stories are made up of several parts (Title and/or Dept and the Button are optional):
