Simple and easy callout area block for your concrete5 website.

All of the below are example callouts:

Callout Title

This is a callout block that includes a title, image, and content area.

Simple Callout in a full-width block area.  This block has the grid container disabled so it stretches the whole length of screen ( this functionality may vary depending on your theme ).

Content is input using ck editor, meaning you can edit the look of the text with the full content WYSIWYG editor.

Data Types

The block includes a title text field, a rich text content editor, and a file manager image select.

Layout & Design Options

The block includes an option tab with many settings controlling the look of the callout area.  Choose from a background color overlay to the internal padding an margins of the block.  Even set a max width to the content within.  All while keeping things simple.

The block scales within a full width area or within individual columns.

The block only outputs information you give it.  If you don't choose a background image you will simply have a background-color to work with.
