Available Fields & Options
  • Page Name: Required field; this is your row's file name in Cascade; customize the default name of row-statistics.

  • Row Theme: select one of the available colors as the row's default theme. Elements within the row will be color-coordinated and optimized for design and accessibility. When placing the row on a page, the theme should be selected for that page.
  • Stat Color: Choose Gold or Green. 
  • Intro Text: Option to add simple text below the title and above the stat cards. Text appears center justified and can include links, bold and italics.

    • Internal Link: Use to link the card to an available Cascade asset.
    • External Link: Use to link the card to an asset not available within Cascade.
    • Anchor: Use to specify an anchor for your internal or external link — no # symbol required. To link to an anchor located on the same page as the row, do not specify an internal or external link destination. New to anchors? Learn how to first create an anchor on your pages or rows.
Tip: To improve the experience for your visitors, always link all or none of the statistic cards in your row. 
Updating Row Content
  • To update the content of a row, edit and publish the row file. 
  • You do not need to publish the pages displaying the row.
  • If a row is unpublished or deleted, it will no longer appear on any live pages.

Tip: If you move or rename a row file, you will then need to publish any pages displaying the row. Not sure which pages are using the row? Check for relationships to the row.
