Universal Snippets and Assets on UND.edu

The UND website contains many design elements that have been implemented in the CMS as Snippets or Assets.

Snippets are pre-formatted blocks of styled content applied via the WYSIWYG editor. Snippets are placed and then edited in an editable region of a page. The Snippets are organized in categories to make selection easier. If a user selects a snippet that is not available to a certain page or section, an error message will appear. This makes sure that the page adheres to the correct design.

These snippets are available for use on Universal pages. Please see UND.edu Web Support site for working examples of snippets.

In this snippet, the user can choose to display the content in either an accordion or in tab format.

In the WYSIWYG, the Accordion/Tab snippet will look like this:

snippet in edit view


  • Use the dropdown to select if you want the snippet to be an accordion or a tab.


  • IDs are optional. If one is not set, it will autogenerate.
  • If a unique ID is set (either for the snippet or for individual headings), the ID will be added to the URL for easy linking when clicked.


  • Accordion titles should be a few words to describe content and illicit a click.
  • Title should indicate what users expect when they click. If content does not match title, users may be frustrated with a wasted click


  • All types of content including photos, videos, other snippets and assets can be added to content area.
  • Adding another accordion/tab within the accordion/tab, however, is not allowed. Mobile users may become frustrated with multiple levels of accordions.
