Full width text

The full width text component is the foundation of the main content area of many pages. Spanning the full main content area within a given template, it houses basic text content that follows our typographic hierarchy with the option to add pull quotes, media, inset information, and tables in-line.

Below are variations of the full width text element:

Use case


When to use
  • When there are multiple paragraphs of text to be shown on a page. Especially if multiple sections are involved.
  • When text content is the main focus of a page.
When something else is better
  • When the goal of the text is to quickly inform users about a set of options and/or drive them to child pages other sections of the site. Consider using the half width link blob.


When to use
  • When an image is needed in the context of a passage of text
  • On a blog or article page when more images are needed that the featured image
When something else is better
  • When a single video is being featured on a page. Consider the featured content module.
  • When multiple columns or a grid of images are needed


When to use
  • When ancillary information is needed in context of flowing text, such as quotes, call to action, related links, etc. Only add related links within page text when the links are directly related to and referenced in a specific part of the text. Generally related links should go in the sidebar.
  • May be used in any full width text component, but recommended only for Learn pages.
When something else is better

Tables follow the established patterns and use cases.

Content and media elements that are full width at desktop size remain full width across all breakpoints. Heading, link, and buttons all follow responsive patterns.




All variations of inset elements move into full width format at screen widths less than 600px as seen below.
