The UW Theme offers several different ways to display images on your pages. Here are a few of our favorites:
Hero carousels are a great way to display a large image at the top of your page. These images set the tone for what kind of content the page includes.
Alternating Content Boxes
Alternating Content Boxes allow you to alternate large images with a text/link box. You can type up to 250 characters of text and include up to 3 links (internal or external).
Featured Content Block
Featured Content Blocks are offered in 1, 2, and 3 column layouts. They are most commonly used in 3 column layouts to display an image, title w/ link, and description of a page on your site.
An Image Carousel differs from a Hero Carousel in that it is used more in the body of the page and does not span the full width of the page. It allows for a large image on the left with text and an optional link in a box on the right. Users can scan through multiple images by clicking navigational arrows in the carousel.
If you have a large selection of photos that you’d like to display, the Image Gallery is a nice option. It will display thumbnail versions of your images in the page and then offer a larger-scale version of the image when clicked. You can add a title, caption, and description for each photo in the gallery.
Fun Tip: In addition to the options above, you can also just embed an image within a Text Block by uploading it to the Media Library:
Categories of Content
If you have a lot of content relating to a couple different headlines of items, there are two unique options for displaying this information:
Accordion Panels are collapsible boxes of information with a headline that displays by default and an expandable pane of more information that appears when clicked. They are nice for info that requires longer titles or if there are more than 5 categories of content to display.
The Tabbed Content page element will allow you to display content in different tabs with headlines and a box under each tab. Click on the various tabs to open new groupings of content. This is a great option when titles are short and you want content to be displayed horizontally across the page.
