Card Snippets


Cards are a flexible content container that organizes images, headings, content, or links into neats group. Multiple card styles are available using the same snippet. Cards can be stacked, include an image, sub-heading, and extra content. Use cards to group similar content and links together. This provides users with a recognizable formatted group of items to scan or select from.

Cards are a great replacement for sliders. Rather than hiding images in the slider that users must click through, cards allow you to display the same amount of content (image, title, text and links) in a way that can all be viewed at once. When working with images in cards it is a good idea to remain consistent. Use images that are the same dimensions and style. Either use matching graphics or a set of photographs, try not to mix the two.

When using multiple cards in a row, we recommend using all the same size image for consistency.

 Images only, other content will be removed.

 

Title

The title or heading of the card. Displays as an heading level 4 (h4) size in WKU Red.

/  Text only, other content will be removed. Headings can be linked, but we recommend using a button in the content area instead.

 

Sub-Title

A sub-title that is grouped with the heading, typically displayed in a lighter italic font (except STYLE-4).

 Text only, other content will be removed.

 

Content

The content of the card. This is where you would include a description of the content and add a button if you wanted.

 WYSIWYG Content, nested snippets, components, and assets allowed.

 

 

Styles

STYLE-1 cards automatically added into columns, with an optional image cropped as a circle. Anything text in the card content column is displayed smaller. This card works great as a business card or person profile.

Style 3

This example uses STYLE-3. The cards are centered, one per row. The image specified for each card, is used as the background; the card's Title, Sub-Title and Content on top of the image. If no image is specified a default is used. The size of the card is determined by the size of the image used. On smaller devices the image will retain it's aspect ratio, so make sure your content fits over the image at any screen size.

 Recommended Image Size

Use darker images so that the content above can be read easily.

Each card is as large as the image specified. Due to the responsive nature of images and how they are used with this style, content that does not fit above the image will be condensed and potentially overflow to the top and bottom of the image. Other image sizes are allowed, but remember to check that the content fits over the image.

Style 4

STYLE-4 cards are equally sized in a single row, with an image shown above each card title (a default image will be used if none is specified). The Sub-Title is shown as a red banner and white text at the bottom left of the card image, just above the card Title.

At first glance, the content is hidden, only the card Title and Sub-Title are show. Hovering over the card will expand the content section; on mobile devices, tap the card to expand its content. Keep the content short to prevent overflow scrolling, the amount will depend on the number of cards you are using.

 Image Cropping

This card style will crop out part of your images, this is to ensure that the images cover the card on all device widths and for each amount of columns. What you may see of an image on a desktop computer could be cropped out on a mobile device. Try to keep the content of the images in the center, and do not use images that contain text.

 

 Recommended Image Size

  • One Card: 1200 x 250
  • Two Cards: 575 x 250
  • Three+ Cards: 350 x 250

 

 Linking the Entire Card

Style-4 cards have the option of turning the entire card into a link. This will also add a link icon the top right of your card on hover. To do this, add your image to the snippet, select it, and then make it a link. This link will then be applied to the entire card once saved.

When linking a card, do not include any other links or buttons in the card Title or Content.
