Sliding Tiles provide an easy-to-use method for organizing the layout of any page that you create on RCampus. They are available when developing content for your personal websites, ePortfolios, class home pages, etc.

Simply enter the desired content into the tiles and then slide them around on the page until they are arranged in a manner that suits your needs. Content that can be added into a tile include text, images and links.

The sliding tiles feature was designed to help users customize their pages with ease. To ensure simplicity, the editing options are more limited than those available with the Free Format development option, however use of sliding tiles provides more control over the layout of your page.

For information about how to select this formatting option, see Invoke Online Editor.

NOTE: Additional layouts and the ability to add more or remove sliding tiles are only available with a Premium upgrade.
