Styles and layout - label (resource)

label iconThis entry relates to styles and layout. A label is classified as a 'resource' in FLO.

A label can be used for layout (eg a horizontal rule), text, images, tables and other information formats. Using a label in your topic homepage allows you to:

  • move it around in the module/topic (ie it's flexible)
  • duplicate it (eg where you want to produce the same heading throughout the module for consistency)
These features of a label as a layout tool can save you time.

Please note: Pages, URLs, forums and other FLO activities/resources have their own Description option which can be displayed on the topic homepage if you choose, so they don't necessarily require a separate label.
