Youtube Video's

Apart from the Video Cards you can still use the Youtube Video component. Just select the Youtube link, paste it into the block and the component will be set automatically.

You can also set the initial image before loading the video.


This block can be used for client cases and testimonials to add quotes to your marketing story. There are also some attributes you can set, such as a profile photo and a link. There is also an Arlanet blue separator line above.


Paul de Metter

I really like the way the Umbraco Accelerator works and gives me the opportunity to create content without limits.


Apart from buttons and cards, you can also link to other content sections or external websites using the Link component. It will set the appropriate SEO settings depending on the attributes selected. You can also use icons to use the component as a download block.

Google Maps

Google Maps can be used as a block and has different settings in the way it can be used:

  • Place
  • Search result
  • Route description
  • Streetview or custom panorama
  • Area

Separated content

In the accordion you can separate content using different tabs.

As you can see there are different tabs with titles and content.

You can add as many tabs as you wish, as long as you keep the user experience in mind.

The vertical tab block will have the same options as the accordion, but will show the content instantly.

You are allowed to use the "Rich Text Editor" which enables the editor to use text formatting when creating  content.

Content can also be created using tables You can create dynamic tables in Umbraco This is ideal for showing structured (product) data
While creating the table you don't have to worry about styling All tables are converted to a responsive version for mobile devices So you can go ahead just thinking about the content
You can leave cells empty alternate rows have a distinctive color
