5.5. Panel element

Bootstrap is shipped with CSS helpers to facilitate the creation of Panels. In djangocms-cascade these panels can be added to any placholder. In the context menu of a placeholder, select Panel below the section Bootstrap and chose the style. The panel heading and footer are optional. As body, the panel element accepts other plugins, normally this is a Text plugin.

5.6. Jumbotron

Bootstrap is shipped with CSS helpers to facilitate the creation of a Jumbotron, sometimes also named “Hero” element. In djangocms-cascade, such a Jumbotron plugin can be added anywhere, even as the root element of a placeholder, in other words, even outside of a Bootstrap Container plugin. The latter configuration is specially useful for images, which shall extend over the full width of the web page.

If used outside a Bootstrap Container, we first must configure the allowed breakpoints. This is the same behaviour as for the Container plugin. Then we optionally can chose an image or a background color, it’s size, attachment, position and repetitions. For more details read this article on how to configure background images using pure CSS.

A Jumbotron without any content has a default height of 96 pixels, which is 48 pixels for the top- and bottom paddings, each. These values are given by the Bootstrap 3 framework.

To increase the height of a Jumbotron you have two choices. The simpler one is to add some content to the Jumbotron plugin which then increases it’s height. Another, is to explicitly to set other padding of the Jumbotron plugin.

5.7. Tab Sets

Bootstrap is shipped with CSS helpers to facilitate the creation of Tabs. In djangocms-cascade, such a Tab plugin can be added anywhere inside columns or rows.

In the context menu of a placeholder, select Tab Set. Depending on the chosen number of children, it will add as many Tab Pane**s. Each **Tab Pane has a Title field, its content is displayed in the tab. Below a Tab Pane you are free to add whatever you want.

5.8. Secondary menu


This plugin is experimental. It may disappear or be replaced. Use it at your own risk!

Often there is a need to add secondary menus at arbitrary locations. The Secondary menu plugin can be used in any placeholder to display links onto child pages of a CMS page. Currently only pages marked as Soft Root with a defined Page Id are allowed as parent of such a secondary menu.
