Recommended Usage

A Call-Out Section makes it easy to highlight important information.  It makes your content stand out with a visually distinct box for text and links. The call-out section is not a component, instead is a page section that has a background colour. The contents of a call-out section are populated using the Standard Editor Component which is placed inside a single column row.

Do’s and Don’ts

  • Adding more than one line of text could potentially conflict with the concept of a typical call-out.
  • Try keeping the content restricted to one clear call to action (CTA) with a link.
  • Avoid using the words “Click Here” for any link you add to a call-out.
