New callout block variants for docs

May 27, 2024 Docs

We believe that managing your documentation / knowledge base should be easy. In addition to being able to create custom index pages using our organizational components, Outverse now provides automatic index pages for both sections and categories. When a user clicks on a section title (either in the left-hand sidebar, or via any breadcrumb), they will now navigate to the section page – this page contains a list of all documents in the section, grouped by category.

From this page users can directly click through into docs and can also drill down into specific categories.

Callout block variants

Callout blocks can be used to highlight important sections within docs. To add a callout block, either type "! " (exclamation mark followed by a space) or select the Callout block option from the / formatting menu. We've added additional variants to support more specific use cases within docs.

Here is an example of an important piece of information within a basic callout block
