On important pages like the front page, people often will not read a lot of text, and sometimes a picture plus a succinct title and description will get the message across much more effectively.

The images stretch the full width of the screen and can take a long time to load on smaller devices, so we can specify smaller images to be used for mobile and tablet. We do this using shortcodes, which is basically some text inside square brackets.

The main thing – if you are not sure, or run into trouble, ask us! It is better that we spend a few minutes doing it rather than you spend a few hours.

You can probably get away with just specifying the desktop image. But as well as being smaller, its also good to add separate images because you can crop them differently. The desktop images are best in a 2:1 width:height ratio, whereas tablet and mobile are usually more square so you can see them better in portrait mode.

Additional options

  • morelink the url of the link at the end of description
  • moretext the text of the link, defaults to more
  • select – visitors are presented with a list of pages for classes. options are select or search. Select is better for country sites
  • label – if select, it is the text first visible to viewer, if search the placeholder text
  • worldwide – if select and on a country site, it checks the checkbox to include all cities and countries
  • display – adding display=”textlower” will cause green box to go to bottom right on desktop
