Add Tables

Tables allow you to display data in rows and columns.

Add and Use Headings

Using headings properly can help in creating a semantic, organized structure to your content, and in allowing site visitors to more easily navigate and read through your website content. If your page content has a lot of sections, each with its own subtitle, you should consider using headings instead of simply applying bold or using CAPITAL LETTERS for your section titles.

Responsive Tables

Tables built on the Open Berkeley platform are designed to be "responsive", meaning they will adjust for optimal display on all devices, including mobile/tablet.

Optional Styles

There are several optional HTML "classes" available that will change some of the default heading, paragraph, table, and list styling in Open Berkeley. You will need to make edits directly in the HTML source to use these classes.

Expand/Collapse Content

Site builders who are comfortable editing HTML directly can add expanding/collapsing (accordion) content sections (the expand/collapse functionality is used on this very page!) to any content page or text widget.

How to Add Links

Overview

Links can be internal (pages on your website), external (other websites), anchor links (also known as jump links), and attachment links (PDF, Word, etc.).

Links can be added to both text, as well as images.
