What size should images be when I upload them to the CMS?
Since messiah.edu is a responsive website our template will typically always assign a percent width to your image. For example if you upload an image to the content section of a document page or homepage, and align it right or left, it will assume a 30% width.
This means that your image might be 500px wide on a large screen or it could only be 200px on a tablet.
We recommend resizing your images to 500px wide for content widgets and document pages.
Note that this does not apply to page banners
What size should page banners be?
By default, every page on the site (excluding messiah.edu) will use the “secondary default” template (this template is being used on this page).
Page banners are not required for pages using the secondary default template. In fact, lower level pages are recommended to not have page banners and focus on content. However, content managers do have the ability to add page banners. Page banners for the secondary default template should be 816px x 289px.
Sub-site homepages (The school of the arts homepage would be considered a sub-site homepage /info/20184/school_of_the_arts) will use a different template. As you can see it has a much larger page banner.
Campaign pages and other popular pages on the website (such as the academic major pages) can also use this template. Please contact the Web Services Office for more information on sub-site homepage banners.
