The Foxbright Spotlights feature are a great way to highlight important information on a website. Often used on home pages, or school building landing pages, Spotlights provide a module to add posts containing a headline, brief summary, thumbnail sized photo, and a link to either a file or URL for more information. NOTE: Some websites are designed to display spotlights without an image, and others only as an image.
The way Spotlights are displayed, such as the size of the thumbnail photo, or if they display horizontally or vertically, varies among clients based on site design. Non web-admin users of the site will need to be granted access to all or specific spotlight groups to be able to add, edit, or delete spotlights.
Spotlights provide a way to display content that may not align as well with the News or Calendar modules. Spotlight content is often more static and sometimes generic posts that can be shared across the district onto multiple spotlight groups' display. Clients may develop individual uses for the Spotlight module, however, some popular examples of Spotlight contents include:
- Online Registrations
- Newsletter Subscriptions
- Link to School Closing Resources
- Transcript Requests
Adding Spotlights to a page requires the following:
- Creating a Spotlight Group
- Adding a Spotlight to the Spotlight Group
- Placing the Spotlight Group on a page
