Hero image layouts allow site builders to add full-width images with text (and optional videos and links) across the top of your home page or landing pages. The styles and layouts match the new design of the Berkeley homepage and News website.
Spotlights are photo slideshows that contain images overlaid with optional titles and descriptions. You can link them to pages on your site, or to external webpages.
Spotlight images are fully-responsive; the spotlight will rescale itself to fit the space available to it depending on your page layout and the viewer's device size. For best results, you may want to crop and resize your images to one of the available layout styles/ratios (see below) before you upload them.
To feature a downloadable link to a file, select the "Add File" option. Please note that you can also provide a downloadable link to a file in a widget by using the "Add Text" widget option and using the "Add Media" button (see Add Attachments from the Editors Guide).
When uploading a new attachment, you will no longer need to select the "public" file destination. You will skip the screen where you used to make this choice, and the public destination will be selected automatically.
Attachments like PDF, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents can be added to Open Berkeley sites as downloadable links. You will upload the attachment first, and then add a link that allows site visitors to click and download.
When uploading a new image, you will no longer need to select the "public" file destination. You will skip the screen where you used to make this choice, and the public destination will be selected automatically.
NOTE: Large (high resolution) images may cause performance issues and could possibly cause other site errors. Try to only upload photos that have a file size of 1MB or smaller, especially when selecting the "original size" option (see below embedding instructions).
