Building Blocks

10KFAM Style Guide

Here is a list of all the elements that have been built into your website.

Headers

Main Hero

Gutenberg Blocks
This is the exact same header section that gets auto-applied to each page. There are fields on the right side bar of the Page Editor under the tab Core Hero. Just fill those fields out along with the Featured Image and this block will be auto-appended to the top of the page.

Type in /Main and select Hero / Main Hero from the list. This block has a “Small Subtitle” that can be removed (paragraph). The large text will be auto-capitalized on the frontend (please don’t type in ALL CAPS). You can change the colors of the button, button text and button link. The “dots” get automatically added in on the frontend of the website.

Small Subtitle

About the 10K-FAM

Here is some amazing text about this and that; these and those. This will go right over here and will be a really cool place to put things about this or other items as well.

Middle Hero

Gutenberg Blocks

Type in /Middle and select Hero / Middle from the list. This block has an H1 tag for the title, center-aligned as well as some descriptive paragraph text. You can add as many buttons as you’d like in the row and alter their colors. Select the Container element to change the Background Image.

Regular Elements

Separator

Gutenberg Block

Type in /Separator to get the core “line divider” block. No settings here at all. Literally just drop it on the page and be done 🙂 If you add the CSS class is-small to the separator, it’ll make it one line + reduce the spacing above/below it.


Some random text goes here. This is just here to showcase some spacing. Nothing more. Nothing less. Just some simple placeholder text to show how much room each of these separators gives you when you apply the other CSS classes to them. Hopefully you didn’t just spend a lot of time reading this to be saddened it was just dummy text that doesn’t even matter.


CTA Strips

Gutenberg Block

Type in /CTA and select CTA Strip A, B or C (all options shown below). When you use this, please be aware of the “floating dots” on the right side so they don’t cover up buttons on the right side of the page (aka. in the section above, keep the buttons on the left).

[A] Have a question?

[B] Have a question?

[C] Have a question?

Image Treatments (Also can be used on Headers)

CSS Class

The combinations with these dot patterns are almost limitless. Rather than creating a ton of reusable blocks you may never actually use, I feel this is the one technical piece that might just be worth writing out.


The core CSS class to know is tkfam-dots-STYLE-LOCATION-COLOR where all the all caps pieces will be replaced. Now let’s dive into how to construct this CSS class name.

Style

There are six styles to pull from and each are shown in a column below. Read the descriptions below each photo to know the name of each style and what “size box” of dots it gives you.

Location

This is either left or right. Do you want the box of dots to be displayed on the left or right side of the element? You can have two class names (one long one for left and one long one for right) to have two sets of dots attached to the same element (think a header that takes up a lot of space).

Color

When you’re editing some text in Gutenberg, you know the color palette on the side that shows you all the colors in the 10kFAM palette? Hover over the top row of colors (where your main colors are). Notice, there are “numerical names” in each. That is the name of the color (ex. the bright orange color is quaternary)

tkfam-dots-smallsquare-left-primary

smallsquare style has a static height and width (no matter what size element you attach it to, it will always be a tiny square).

tkfam-dots-largesquare-left-secondary

largesquare style has a static height and width (no matter what size element you attach it to, it will always be a larger square).

tkfam-dots-fulltop-left-tertiary

fulltop style makes the dot “box” the same size as what you attach it to and pushes it up either to the left or right depending on the class name.

tkfam-dots-middlelongrectangle-left-quaternary

middlelongrectangle style creates a “dot box” that is 30% the width of the item you attached it to + about 25% taller. This is great for headers to add an accent.

NOTE: middlelongrectangle is used on CTA Strip A, B, and C on the header.

tkfam-dots-tallrectangle-left-quinary

tallrectangle style has a static height and width and aligns to the bottom of it’s element. Recommended with taller images.

tkfam-dots-tallrectangletop-left-primary

tallrectangletop style has a will be 110% the height of it’s element (be careful where you use it) and be pushed up halfway up the element you attach it to (aka. it’s going to be tall).

Columns with Outlines

Gutenberg Block
This is a normal Columns block; feel free to add or remove columns by selecting the Columns block and changing the quantity of columns.

Type in /Columns and select Columns / Outlines. When you’re editing the individual column, if you change the background color of the column, it will actually set the outline and the shadow (and not the background). The first paragraph in the column should be a single word and will be automatically BOLD AND CAPITALIZED while the proceeding paragraph(s) will be normal.

Circle Image Captions

Gutenberg Block
This is a normal Cover block with a CSS class of tkfam-circle-caption. You can then add is-COLOR to change the hover background color (and the text color will automatically be changed)

Type in /Circle and select Circle Image Captions [COLOR]. All you need to do is edit the “bold” text and then the “sub” text. You don’t have to worry about changing colors – all of that is handled in the code. Please use a square image when you replace the image.

Post Callout

Custom Block

Type in /Post and select Post Callout. This is a custom-built block, so you will be greeted with a form to fill out. You can toggle it from Horizontal / Vertical view. If you choose Vertical, make sure this place this block in a thin column. If you’re in Horizontal mode, you can turn on Carousel mode. You can filter by Category (and then choose an amount of posts) or by Manual Posts and select the precise posts you want to show.

Culture of Communication (Pt. 1)

03.09.2024

I’ll be honest. For the last several years, I’ve found myself wrestling with my own frustration around communication. Specifically interpersonal communication. Sometimes there are extenuating circumstances where grace is needed, of course, but I’m talking more about a habitual pattern of not responding in a timely manner (or at all) or responding in a way […]

Why a 10k?

07.26.2023

If you saw the announcement about the virtual 10k we’re hosting this fall, the thought may have crossed your mind, “Why would a worship school be promoting an athletic event?? Aren’t most of your students and alumni more the artist-types? Does a worship leader even need to care about being able to walk or run […]

The Sweet Spot

06.29.2023

There are three areas all leaders need to consider, be aware of, and give real weight to in order to find that sweet spot where both the leader and the church will find the most growth and fulfillment together. Prioritizing only one, or even two, will result in an imbalance that will not only be felt by the leader, but by the church as well.
