Banner Images

To turn a banner image ON for your asset:

  1. Go to the "Metadata" screen for the asset:
    a. Add the asset number for your banner into the "Banner Image" Field.
    b. Change "Show Banner Image" to Yes.
  2. Save your changes.

The default is banner off.

To create a full width banner image across the top of your site:

  1. Create a banner image with 960 pixel width and 122 pixel height.
  2. Upload it to a "Banner Images" folder asset on the root level of your site.
    See "Banner Images" folder ID: #546602
  3. Go to the "Metadata" screen for the asset:
  4. a. Add the asset number for your banner into the "Banner Image" Field.
  5. b. Change "Show Banner Image" to Yes.
  6. c. Change the "Show left menu?" field to NO

When this banner image with 960 pixel width and 122 pixel height, is used with Left menu showing it will scale down to a smaller version 710 pixel width and 90 pixel height.

Option

If you know your site will always show the "Left menu" and you want to create a banner image specific to this content width eg: similar to the one used on this page, follow the steps above but create the banner image with 710 pixel width and 122 pixel height.
NOTE: This width 710 pixel is not suitable for full width display - it will leave a white gap on the right side. 

You have the option to increase or decrease the height of your images.
