Think of a flatblock as a flatpage but for just part of a site. It's
basically a piece of content with a given name (slug) and an optional
title (header) which you can, for example, use in a sidebar of a website.
slug = models.CharField(max_length=255, unique=True,
help_text=_("A unique name used for reference in "
"the templates"))
header = models.CharField(blank=True, null=True, max_length=255,
help_text=_("An optional header for this "
content = models.TextField(verbose_name=_('Content'), blank=True,
# Helper attributes used if content should be evaluated in order to
# represent the original content.
