General Content: Example

Optional Image Caption

Optional Title

[2] General Content supports one image per content type, featured either in the top left or top right, with text wrapping around the image. This example you see here is actually two separate instances of [2] General Content, one showing a landscape oriented image on the right with a caption, and one showing a portrait oriented image on the left with no caption.

Tables, links (external, section, and document), bulleted lists, and horizontal rules can all be inserted into any [2] General Content

Remember that you can break up your content into multiple instances of [2] General Content. This can allow you to display multiple images, mirror out or duplicate specific paragraphs (or lists, tables, etc), or easily navigate your content within Site Manager. 

Please note that you cannot embed images directly into the Tiny MCE editor (where you write this text content) as they will not be responsive, and we strive to provide the same experience for all our users across all devices and browsers.
