Description

The <div.content-full> entity and its variations form a distinct content area for a set of text that spans the full width of a page. It includes various stylings that can be applied as well such as .content-padded.

Intent

This entity can be employed by any module to create a content area. Most commonly, it will contain an <h1> header and <div> or <p> tags to separate different blocks of content.

Example Code

This is an example content area that leverages several different components of the style.

<div class="content-full content-padded"> 
    <h1 class="content-first light">{CONTENT_TITLE}</h1> 
    <div>{CONTENT_BLOCK}</div> 
    <p>{CONTENT_TEXT_BLOCK_1}</p> 
    <p class="content-last">{CONTENT_TEXT_BLOCK_2}</p> 
</div>

In all cases, the .content-full containing entity is a <div>. This allows the use of both traditionally inline entities <h1> and <p> and the block entity <div>, where the direct children of the <div.content-full> are all distinct content blocks. In addition, the framework provides <div.content-padded> for additional styling of the content area (adds rounded corners and padding when possible).

Within most content areas, the first element will be an <h1> used as a title heading, with the .light style optionally available. After the header (or at the beginning of the <div.content-full> if no header is used) comes a set of either <div> or <p> tags which define individual elements in the content elements area. No additional classes are needed at this child level, but a couple are optionally available. The <div.content-button> element creates a "button-like" content entity which should have an <a> tag surrounding its interior content, and in addition a .label class makes it possible to have labels, both for <div.content-button> and for the more general <p> and <div> tags within <.content-full>.

See below for an example using <div.content-button> and <div.label>:

<div class="content-full content-padded"> 
    <h1 class="content-first light">{CONTENT_TITLE}</h1> 
    <div>
        <div class="label">{CONTENT_BLOCK_LABEL}</div>
        {CONTENT_BLOCK}
    </div> 
    <div class="content-button"> 
        <a href="{BUTTON_LINK}"> 
            <div class="label">{BUTTON_LABEL}</div> 
            {BUTTON_VALUE}</a> 
    </div> 
    <p>{CONTENT_TEXT_BLOCK_1}</p> 
    <p class="content-last">{CONTENT_TEXT_BLOCK_2}</p> 
</div>

As a note, at the direct child level of .content-full, the framework defines <h1> and <p> as block entities because of the way in which it separates pieces of content. To add multiple paragraphs of content within a single content element block, add another <div> within the <div.content-full> element, and then place paragraphs within that child <div>:

<div class="content-full content-padded"> 
    <div>
        <p>{PARAGRAPH_1_BLOCK_1}<p>
        <p>{PARAGRAPH_2_BLOCK_1}<p>
    </div>
    <div>
        <p>{PARAGRAPH_3_BLOCK_2}<p>
        <p>{PARAGRAPH_4_BLOCK_2}<p>
    </div>
</div>

The UCLA tour app welcome message uses .content-full with .content-padded. It also employs the <h1.light> class and uses .content-first on the title element and .content-last on the content element.

Self-Guided Tour Content Box

For maximal compatibility, the first element of the content area should be tagged .menu-first and the last element should be tagged .menu-last. This is not required for browsers that support the :first-child and :last-child pseudo-classes, but these tags enable consistency across mobile browsers that do not provide full CSS 2.1 support.
