Block Templates

Floating Back includes 2 custom block templates:

Autonav: FB Dropdown menu

Page List: FB Thumb Blog

 

Autonav

This custom block template provides you with the cool, animated dropdown menus. If your site doesn't already have an "Autonav" block on it, just add this block to the top-right corner ("header nav" area). Then apply the "FB Drop down menu" custom block template. If you're not sure how to do this, see on the right more instructions. The colours of the dropdown menu can be customised via the Dashboard.

 

Page List

The "FB Thumb Blog" custom block template is designed for use with a blog-style page. Alternatively you could use it for a news-style page or anything else you wish. It will display an automatically resized image along with the page name (linked), published date and short description. This custom block template is designed to be responsive so it will adjust itself automatically on smaller browser screens.

The image is added using a custom page attribute. You can assign an image from your File Manager to a particular page via the Dashboard File Manager. Simply click a page and choose "Properties" followed by "Custom Attributes". Locate the attribute called "Page Thumbnail" and click it. This will add the attribute to the list on the right ready for you to use. Now click this attribute to pick an image from your File Manager. Easy!

Here's an example (the links don't actually go anywhere useful in this example):
