Summary: Using images as banners, within modules, aligning them to the right, and adding captions beneath them

Main image

When using an image at the top of a page, recrop/resize the image to 600px x 250px. After inserting the image, right-click the image and select 'Edit Media Attributes' and in the 'class' field add:

  • img-main

Aligning images to the right

By default images are aligned to the left. To align the images to the right, insert the image to the left of the first word in the paragraph, then right-click the image and select 'Edit Media Attributes' and in the 'class' field add:

  • align-right - for standard-width images (283 pixels wide) and for images wider than 283 pixels
  • align-right-no-width - for images narrower than 283 pixels wide

Image captions

Caption in here

To add a caption beneath an image, use <p class="caption">.

 

For an image in the main body of the web page, first insert the image then open the HTML view and add the following code around the lengthy-looking <span> code:

<div class="img-with-caption align-right">
[IMAGE CODE STARTS WITH <span id="media-... ENDS WITH </span>]
<p class="caption">Caption in here</p>
</div>

For an image in a right hand column, first insert the image then open the HTML view and add the following code around the lengthy-looking <span> code:

<div class="img-with-caption">
[IMAGE CODE STARTS WITH <span id="media-... ENDS WITH </span>]
<p class="caption">Caption in here</p>
</div>

Images within modules

When using an image within a module, recrop/resize the image to one of the following sizes:

  • 283px x 142px 
  • 283px x 94px
