Site Builder 3 is designed to let you put anything on any page you want. The method we created to handle this goal involves the use of smaller chunks of content that can be easily deployed on a page. These "assets" each have unique properties and will display content a variety of ways.

Below you'll find a list of the current assets available in Site Builder 3 and a brief description of each. Click on any of the asset names for a more detailed look at it. If you want basic help on asset creation, start here: Creating an Asset.

  • ANR Job Board - The ANR Job Board pulls job announcements posted to the state site. You can select a county or counties that the job is in or near, and those jobs will appear on your site!
  • Blogs - Blogs are a great way to post regular, brief bits of news and content. No post is too small! This asset will combine and deploy any ANR Blog.
  • Calendar - With Site Builder 3's new calendar groups, you can create as many "calendars" as you like, and then use this asset to deploy one or a combination of them.
  • Census Data - This asset will post links to the 2007 USDA Census of California counties.
  • CIMIS Weather - Our CIMIS weather asset will display the historical weather data collected from stations in California.
  • Comments - Want feedback? Deploy a comments asset on your page! All comments are moderated.
