Basic Template: Header Image

The Basic Template  has three options for placing a header on a website.

basic template: banner fields


  • the Shared banner type displays the same header image on all pages of a website.
  • It is preferred and is used on the majority of website.
    note: it is a good option for the end user experience — sharing a consistent visual image on all pages
  • this is the default method — no changes are needed on a page to use this method
  • work with the Web Team
    • to select the header image
    •  to determine what text appears at the base of the header image
    • the Web Team builds and configures the blocks needed for the shared image
  • as you create pages the selected image will appear as the header on all pagesexample: shared image on Animal Studies web pages
    baskic template: animal studies shared header

Text Only

  • The Text Only banner type displays the header text for the page on a red bar with white text– there is no image.
  • the Text Only banner option needs to be chosen on each page
    note: It is primarily used on pages deeper within a site and are content heavy.
  • when the Text Only radio button is selected more options appear
