Content Blocks are the newest addition to the Safari Portal Element Library.
They essentially allow you to pull in any Content Page that already lives in your Content Library within an existing page.
This gives you a ton of flexibility in terms of how you present your itineraries and also in terms of time savings.
Here are some examples to give you ideas:
Example 1: Creating commonly used components as Miscellaneous pages and then pulling them into an itinerary.
For example, you could create a Miscellaneous page in your Content Library (Content Library > Create New Content > Miscellaneous page), call it Dinner at Leisure with the tag "block."
On the page since you are only using this as a block, you don't have to worry about the photo or text on the left (Content Blocks will ONLY pull in the content from the right side of the page).
When you are building an itinerary and want to include the sentence "PM - Tonight you will have dinner at leisure" you can use the Block element.
Similarly, you could build the components to any tours as individual pages within the Content Library and then pull in each component as a separate block within the page. For example, you could create Content pages for various possible activities in and around Nairobi (ie, Sheldricks Visit, Giraffe Center Visit, Shopping in Nairobi, Dinner at Talisman) and then customize a page using just the elements of that day that the particular guest would be doing.
Example 2: Creating activities based itineraries
