Content Page Banners

The interior pages of your site have the option to have a banner at the top of each page.

  • What are banner images?

    The 825 x 350 pixel space at the top of each content page can accommodate either a single image or a slideshow of up to five images. On most pages, this banner is the dominant visual element of your page. Just as with the home page banner, there is room for a headline and read-in to describe the photo. If you are linking to a page, the entire banner becomes a button.

Choosing Helpful Images

Since banner images are visually dominant, it is important that they are helpful and understandable.

Image Alt Text

All images on university websites must be accessible, meaning they must include alternative text. Follow the university's guidelines for writing alternative text on the Digital Accessibility site to make your images accessible.

Best practice

Simplicity Is Key

When using photography, choose striking and simple images to convey your message. Tighter cropping and a focused subject matter will create better images.

  •  

    All content page banners have the option to hold a single video. The banner contains a still image with a play button to indicate it’s a video.

    When a user clicks anywhere on the banner, the video will open in a lightbox to play.

    All video banners must have captions and an accessible transcript. Follow the guidelines for captioning and transcripts on the university's Digital Accessibility site to ensure your video is accessible.
