Add Table (widget)

The "Add Table" widget is a widget that allows users to put a basic table in a widget area. The table will have a "header" row, and additional "data" rows.

Note about the Add Table widget

There are a few ways to add tables on the Open Berkeley platform, and the the "Add Table" widget is one of them. The "Add Table" widget does not allow any additional formatting (such as bold, italic, or links).

To edit the HTML of a page, select the "HTML" button from the editing toolbar.

Photo Thumbnails

Photo thumbnails allow Site Builders to add a widget containing a photo with a color band (all Berkeley Brand colors are available) added to the bottom of the photo. These Photo Thumbnails are meant to link to either internal or external content.

Add Submenu

Overview

You can feature menus from your site in a widget area by using the "Add Submenu" option. Select "Override Title" to add your own title if desired (otherwise, the title defaults to the chosen menu, and links to the parent item), then select the "Starting level" (1st level, 2nd level, etc.).

This widget can be especially helpful on Landing Pages, which will not have a local menu by default once sub-pages are added (unlike...
