Overview

This document shows unit administrators or web committee members how to create new homepage image headers. The header allows you to select an image, a headline, some body text, button text and a link to a page of your choice. Only one image is shown at a time, while the red buttons at the bottom are consistent and static across all header images. The image that is served up is random and served out of all your active image headers. You can have as many active images as you want, but only one is served per page view.

Create a New Homepage Image Header

This document will help you create new homepage image headers to show on your site. 

Please Note

If you haven't had this feature set up on your site yet (with the static red buttons at the bottom of the homepage header image), please submit this form to have it added. Once we've made some changes on our end, you can follow the steps below to add additional image headers.

Step 1: Create New Homepage Image Header

First click on 'Content.'

Then 'Add content'

Then click on 'Homepage Image Header'.

You should get to this page:

Step 2: Fill in Relevant Information

The minimum this page needs to have is a Title, an Image and Alternative Text. If you add text to the other areas, it will be displayed on top of the image.

Step 3: Save!

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the save button.

And that's it! The new homepage image header is created. It will be randomly shown along with any other homepage image headers your site already has. If you want to control which headers are shown, unpublish all headers, except for three of them.
