The contact block is placed on the right side of the page to offer a quick and easy reference for getting in touch with your department.
Overview Accordion Open
There are 2 types of contact blocks available for your use:
Homepage Contact Block: On your homepage, the Contact Block panel is used. A homepage contact block typically contains email, phone, and social media contact information.
Sidebar Contact Block: For all other pages, you place a contact block in the right column using the Header shortcode. An example of this approach is shown in the right column of this page. This type of contact block contains an email address and phone number.
