There will be no Open Berkeley support during the week of Thanksgiving, from Monday, November 23 through Friday, November 27, 2020. Information Services and Technology (IST) will be participating in the optional campus-wide curtailment program.
A few Open Berkeley features require the addition of a "featured image" on the original content item. The image can be uploaded or selected from the image library during the process of creating/editing a content item.
A featured image should be added to content items when using the following features:
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. File size is limited to 50 MB because larger file sizes can cause degraded performance.
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).
