Creating Content

Drupal helps us create and manage structured content so it can be searched, found, used, and reused in ways that satisfy our customers. This section provides demos, tips and other quick references to help you create and manage your program office web content.

Content Types

The ACF website uses a series of content types — templates that define how content looks and functions. Each one has it's own requirements and purpose.

Choosing the right content type is important to making sure your information is easily found and understood.

Content Blocks

Content blocks are flexible content container that you can use for a wide variety of content. You can easily mix text with image content to highlight and amplify information on your page(s).

Media Files

Media files, formerly referred to as "assets", allows you to enhance your content with visual, audio, and other document files that support your subject matter and messaging strategies. 

ACF Website Styleguide

The ACF website models the U.S. Web Design Standards Visit disclaimer page to promote improved user experience, accessibility, and consistency across digital government products and websites. This page demonstrates how we've applied the standard styles to this website.

Menus & Architecture

Coherent and consistent information architecture is crucial to a good website. This is how menus work on the ACF website.

Global Resources & Taxonomy

Standardizes how resources are organized and displayed, promotes consistency, helps users navigate across sites, and improves content sharing across ACF sites.

Archiving Process

The ACF archive will house specific content types: web pages, resource library items, press releases, and blogs. This page outlines the process to move published Drupal content from the ACF website into the ACF Archive.  You must be logged into Drupal to move items into the archive.  Logged in Drupal authors and editors can only prepare and request for site content to be moved to the archive.  OC Drupal admins will review archive requests, then publish content to the archive site after confirming items meet archive criteria.
