WiscWeb CMS - Content Blocks - Using an Article Block
The Article Block is flexible in that it is commonly used for such simple purposes as adding paragraphs of text, an image, or headings to a page, but with knowledge of HTML it can be used for much more. We will focus on the simpler implementation of the block.
Refer to WiscWeb CMS - Content Blocks - General Steps to Implementing Content Blocks in order to insert an instance of an Article Block on your page. Then proceed to populate the content as described below.
