Card grid

Card grid is a page component that consists of a number of links to pages, displayed in a card format. Links, descriptions, and icons can be customized.

Each row can contain up to 5 cards (columns)—each will be evenly spaced across the page. On smaller screen sizes, the cards will automatically resize to fit in the available space.

Regular content, such as a heading, can be placed in between rows to act as a separator. In the example page below, a list of the used options appear between each card row.

  If you're creating several cards and you'll have the same number of cards per row, you don't need to create a new CMS grid row/section for every single row to be displayed on the page. You can add all of the cards in a single CMS grid row/section and control the number of cards that get displayed per row using CSS classes. This makes it easier to add/remove cards later, without having to re-create or move any existing cards to a different row. Contact the Web Team for assistance with this.
