Responsive Tables

Tabular data is best displayed in HTML tables, but sometimes large tables do not fit on small screens making the table information unreadable. Suitcase Interim makes tables responsive so the layout of the tables adapt to small screens.

How?

When content creators add tables to their pages, news articles, or other types of content, Suitcase Interim automatically detects the table and makes it responsive.

Colors

Iowa State University has specific primary and secondary colors defined as part of the ISU brand standards. Essentially, these are the colors which may be used throughout the Suitcase theme.

Accessible Image Content

Per WCAG 2.0, non-text content should have a text-based alternative accessible to screen readers. Suitcase supports this standard by providing content creators with an "alternative text" (often abbreviated as alt text) field for adding image descriptions. Alt text should not be too long so that screen reader users are not inconvenienced.

About Luggage

Luggage is a platform for creating websites, targeted at academic websites for departments and researchers.

The platform is built on Drupal and consists of features that come with configuration. For example, the People feature contains a prebuilt content type appropriate for displaying a group of people divided into subgroups of your own choosing (faculty, staff, etc.) along with a view. Here's an example.

How to edit website content and view your revisions


In this tutorial, we will cover how to edit content. Sometimes, you will notice that your content has information that needs to be updated. Or perhaps you created an Announcement with a typo in the body text. Also, at the end of this tutorial, we will discuss how you can view revisions (if they are enabled on your Luggage site).

This tutorial uses the pages content type as an example, but each content type will have similar instructions.

Events

How to creating an event on your website


In this tutorial, we will learn how to create an event. The event content type includes a calendar so that site visitors can view events in a list. Visitors can also view events by day, week, month and year. Posting event pages to the front page makes it easy for users to see upcoming events.

Step 1: Creating Your Event


Using the menu bar at the top of the page, hover over the "Content" tab and select "Event" from the "Add Content" menu (Note: your menu may look slightly different):
