Eight website banner images

Banner images are full-width images that appear on a site. WCMS 3 allows for up to 8 banners per block, with the option to add links, Big text, and Small text.

Multiple Banner images are supported and will display in a carousel format. For ideal display, all banners should have the same dimensions. This can be achieved by editing the picture using either an online image editing software or a built-in application on your computer. A minimum banner size of 1010x300 is recommended. Banners that are narrower or wider than their location will automatically be scaled to fit.

Tips when creating a banner image

  • The style of the section (width of the section) will affect the width of the Banner images. If you would like your Banner image(s) to be a different width than the rest of the page, consider using multiple sections. See What are sections for more information.
  • Avoid images containing text; if necessary, center the text and use a colour contrast checker to ensure it meets accessibility requirements.

Coming soon!

Expected in the upcoming 3.2.1 release is the ability to place banner images above a page title. Keep an eye out for more information on this release.
