Design Library - Spotlights

The Spotlights Component uses the Content Type 'Design Library - Home3ColsSpot' and displays three blocks in a row containing an Image, Text with an option for an Internal or External Link. The Polygon can be set to appear on either the left or right and there are two different layout options if multiple instances of the Content Type are used in a row on a page (Slider or Grid)

The Content Type contains fields for 'Name', 'TitlePanel' (the standard text used here is Spotlights and if you're using more than one instance of this in a row, leave this field blank in the second Content Type).

There are three blocks of content 'Title 1' (this is the text that appears in the top left hand side of the image), an option for an Internal or External link, 'Image 1' (using an Image from the Media Library with dimensions 450px x 280px) and 'Content' (this field is for the text that appears under the image). 'Title 2', an option for an Internal or External link, 'Image 2' and 'Content'. 'Title 2', an option for an Internal or External link, 'Image 2' and 'Content'.
