YouVisit Row

The YouVisit row highlights one of W&M's virtual tour stops with an immersive embed presented in a variety of layout styles — two options that present as a large feature, two options with side-by-side content areas and one option that is fully edge-to-edge.

Rows are available to specified users who have received the required training, consultation, and approval from their Cascade Manager.
Suggested Uses
  • Highlight a tour stop to show campus amenities and academic offerings.
  • Highlight a campus location and encourage exploration.

Note: This row only accepts YouVisit embed code. The university currently offers two tours within our YouVisit experience: the "William & Mary Main Campus" (20 stops) and "School of Education" (10 stops).

  • Select your rows storage folder — this is likely labeled _rows or similar. If you don't have one yet, build one now.
  • From the top menu, select Add Content > Rows > YouVisit.
Basic Fields & Options

These fields appear in each layout option for this row:

  • Page Name: Required field; this is your row's file name in Cascade; customize the default name of row-youvisit.
  • Title: Required field; used as a section header for screen readers and should be meaningful.
  • Show Title?
    • If unchecked: The title is used by screen readers but not visually displayed.
    • If checked: The title is prominently displayed at the top or above the text side of the row.
    • The Edge-to-Edge layout does not visually display the title, regardless of this setting.
  • 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 can be customized for that page. Note: The Row Theme setting does not impact the appearance of the Edge-to-Edge layout.
  • Embed Layout: Select one of the available layout options - Feature, Wide Feature, 50-50, 50-50 Large or Edge-to-Edge. See layout details and additional fields below.
  • Embed: Fill in the required Embed Code field. To get the code, follow these steps:
    1. Copy the desired embed code to your clipboard from the YouVisit Embed Library.
    2. Paste the HTML code from your clipboard into the Embed Code field in Cascade.
Embed Layouts

Choose one of the available layout options — Feature, Wide Feature, 50-50, 50-50 Large or Edge-to-Edge. You can edit the row anytime to switch to a different layout.

Single-column table of collapsible items for formatting purposes.
Feature & Wide Feature

Presents the optional title and intro text above a large (Feature) or larger (Wide Feature) YouVisit embed, with an optional link below. All elements are centered within the row. 

  • Intro Text: Option to add simple text below the title and above the embed. Text appears center justified and can include links, bold and italics.
  • Link Text: Option to include a link below the embed. Tip: the YouVisit embed provides visitors with clickable elements to launch the virtual tour, so it is unnecessary to use this field for that purpose.
  • Internal Link: Use to link the text to an available Cascade asset.
  • External Link: Use to link the text to an asset not available within your Cascade Site.
  • Anchor: Use to specify an anchor for your internal or external link — no # symbol required. To link to an anchor 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.
50-50 & 50-50 Large

Two side-by-side content areas of equal size — one presenting the YouVisit embed as an inset visual (50-50) or as a large edge-to-edge element (50-50 Large), the other a title, text and linked button. 

  • Order of Elements: Applies only to the desktop view of the row; choose Embed Left or Embed Right; the text will appear on the opposite side of the row. The elements will always stack vertically on small devices with the embed above the text.
  • Text Side: Required field; enter text that appears below the title (if displayed).

A large format presentation that extends the entire width of the browser window for a YouVisit embed with no title, text or additional links displayed. The Row Theme setting does not impact the appearance of this layout.

Note: There should be no more than one YouVisit row per page to avoid the disorienting experience multiple moving embeds may cause for visitors.

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 must publish any pages displaying the row. Not sure which pages are using the row? Check for relationships to the row.
