Answer

Great question! The two "links" box-types are closely related; the only difference between them is the amount of information that displays on the page.

Links and Lists boxes are meant for displaying longer descriptions about links.

  • The Short Description field (limit: 500 characters) for these links displays on the page, beneath the link title.
  • There's also a "More Info" field, which offers an additional 1,000 characters for description. This info displays when users click the blue "i" button

Simple Web Links boxes are meant for a more condensed page layout.

  • The Short Description field (limit: 500 characters) displays when users hover over a link's title; it doesn't automatically display on the page
  • There's no "More Info" field; keep it short and sweet. :)
