The Excellent Swim Team Website

This page demonstrates a number of features of the OTB swim team website software:

  • Custom page layout with background colors in some regions,
  • Modules are assigned to regions in the layout (there are many more modules than shown here):
    • flexible module (this area),
    • articles module (below left),
    • announcement module (top right), and
    • special events module (bottom right). 

The other pages provide samples of other modules and various ways of setting up OTB swim team website pages.


This is a flexible module used for announcements that are not in the calendar!

The module below is linked to the calendar on the website. It displays upcoming events that you've selected to show in this special module.


Layout of Homepage


This homepage is a custom layout with 4 modules.

  1. The Header (above) is a flexible module used to show a title and some introductory information ... could have put a mission statement here.
  2. To the right, are two modules.
    • The bottom one is a special events module that is linked to the calendar. When events are put on the calendar, you can indicate whether they should display in the special events module!
    • The top one is a flexible module used for announcements that are not in the calendar. Notice that you can use colors to attract attention - colored text and/or colored background.
  3. This section is an articles module. It lets you control how many articles appear on a page and automatically archives articles.  This "article" does not have a longer story linked to it, but the one below does.  Note that articles can contain pictures, Flash, and other media.

Coach Offers Inspiring Message


Our Coach

Our coach offers encouragement and inspiration to the TEST swimmers...

A young woman was complaining to her father about how difficult her life had become. He said nothing, but took her to the kitchen and set three pans of water to boiling. To the first pan, he added carrots; to the second, eggs; and to the third, ground coffee. After all three had cooked, he put their contents into separate bowls and asked his daughter to cut into the eggs and carrots and smell the coffee. "What does this all mean?" she asked impatiently.
