Signpost

Purpose

Signposts are miniature representations of collections, categories and other resources. Currently we use them to present collections in a list, on the course collections page.

Example

Small Signpost
Medium Signpost

Variants

Signpost variation for Exercises

We use a Signpost variant on Exercises to launch the exercise. This variant adds a semi-transparent overlay between the picture and the text, and uses a button style on the Launch text.

Compact Signpost

This is a compact version of the signpost module that is primarily used for categories. Due to the smaller dimensions, the label and course count are ommitted and replaced by a larger icon representing the resource that is being linked to.

Decorated variant

The --decorated modifier adds a background image and semi-transparent overlay. These are subtly animated when hovered over.
