Accordions and Tabs
Article is the new content editor integrated into LRS Antilles Content Manager. It is a product of Imperiavi.
Article Content Editor uses a “block” style format. Each piece of content, whether text, an image or video, is considered a block. Think of your content as individual units ("blocks"). that are stacked on top of one another. Each block has its own "mini" toolbar, seen below.

+ – Click the plus sign to choose the type of content block, such as a paragraph, text, or grid. See more in the "Add Content" section below. Templates – Custom-built sites may include templates that can be added here. Ask your project manager if your site uses templates. Mobile View – this automatically changes your content to a mobile-friendly layout, so you can see what the content will look like on mobile devices. A good mobile view is very important for your users’ experience! <> This button accesses the html code for the entire page, not just an individual block.

Quote – Pull quote styling
Grid – Add instant design to your page – you will see options for up to 5 columns, and alternative design styles, as seen below.

Each paragraph is a block. A block might be multiple sentences, only one sentence, a bulleted list, a headline, etc.
