Features of Digital Commons Sites User and content focused Accessibility as a priority and a mobile-first approach help to make Digital Commons websites user and content focused. Accessible Our Guidelines Digital Commons aims for the success criteria of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (WCAG 2.0 AA). The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) develops and maintains these guidelines. Following these guidelines help people with disabilities perceive, operate, understand, and fully enjoy content. Accessibility Checker: Editorially Digital Commons websites include the Editoria11y accessibility checker. It runs automatically when you edit content. The checker identifies potential accessibility issues and tells how to correct them. Mobile Friendly All Devices are Covered The Digital Commons plaform is optimized for all devices: desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. You don't maintain a separate mobile site, and you don't have to worry if the right content will be on top. A good mobile user experience is baked into the sites. Mobile View Mobile Menu Colorful with Readable Fonts Building Blocks to Highlight Web Content Call-To-Action Cards and Extensive Icon Set Article Cards Event Cards Video Cards Text Version Interactive Map Export Map Data Clickable County Map Robust Online Forms Turn your paper forms into online forms. Submissions can get emailed individually as they are submitted, and download all together into a spreadsheet. Our forms are also easy for site visitors to fill in and submit. Complex forms can have multiple pages, to make them easier to manage. You can configure a form to send a reassuring confirmation message. You can also create a form to show only the content that the site visitor needs. For example, a feedback form could ask: do you have a suggestion or a complaint? Those who pick "suggestion" get different questions than those who want to submit a complaint. Dynamic Content Types With Digital Commons, you get functionality out of the box that makes sense for government sites. Press releases can be added and categorized. They will automatically appear in the press release list, allowing site visitors to sort and search only press releases. A section of your website can contain a block or page with a filtered list of press releases for only a single category. Events can be added, categorized and a dynamically built calendar is created of all events. After an event has passed, it automatically drops off the calendar. Document collections can be dynamically generated, providing the public with sortable catalogs of documents. Blogs are available as well, with all of the functionality that you expect from a blog. Data Tables Data tables allow you to easily upload spreadsheets of data. Site visitors can sort by columns.
