Creating a Fragment

The first example is simple. If you aren’t sure about the basics of Fragments and Collections, you should read Creating Page Fragments first so you know what you’re getting yourself into.

  1. Go to Site Administration and for your selected site click BuildFragments.

  2. Create a new Collection named Developing Fragments.

  3. Inside of the new Collection, create a new Fragment named Basic Fragment.

You’re now on the Fragment editing page. There are four panes on this screen. You enter HTML in the top left pane, CSS in the top right, JavaScript in the bottom left, and preview the results in the bottom right.

You can look at the three editing panes as if each were writing to a separate file. Everything in the HTML pane goes to index.html, the CSS pane goes to index.css, and the JavaScript one goes to index.js. The preview pane renders everything as it will look on the page. Here’s how this works:

  1. Add the following code inside the div in the HTML pane:

          This text is styled, so it will look pretty!
  2. Add the following code to the CSS pane inside the fragment block:

      width: 100%;
      background-color: white;
      text-align: center;
      padding: 2em 0;
      font-size: 28px;
  3. Add this code below it and replace the ##### with the auto-generated number provided for the fragment

    .fragment_##### h1 {
      font-weight: 100;
      width: calc(100% - 1em);
      max-width: 60ch;
      margin: 0 auto;
      font-size: 28px;
  4. Click Publish to save your work and make it available to add to a content page.

As you work, you can observe the preview in the preview pane.

From here, the Fragment can be used to create a Content Page. To see this process in action, see the Building Content Pages from Fragments tutorial. Next, you’ll explore some Fragment-specific tags.
