Banners/Sliders

A visual overview of the banners and sliders that can be added to a site.

Banners / Graphics

Site Banners

Each site in the SOM Web System has the option to choose a site banner that is the horizontal graphic that displays behind the site title and navigation. This banner will carry through the entire site.  Someone from the OIS web team will install this for the site manager.

Landing Page Graphic

Like the Site Banner, the Landing Page Graphic displays a single graphic behind the site title and navigation.  It is a larger graphic that displays on a single page and is designed to highlight special events or the services provided by the Department/Center/Program.  This graphic can be displayed alone or with the following sliders laid over top of it: the Templated Slider with News Items, the Templated Slider with Custom Slides, or the Templated Slider with Info Box.  Someone from the OIS web team will install the landing page graphic for site managers.

Alternative Landing Page Graphic

This is a very easy way to display a single graphic as a banner on your site.  Site managers/editors can set this up on their own.

Sliders

Templated Slider With News Items

There's no need to create slides for the Templated Slider with News Items.  It will automatically pull the 3 most recently published News items from your site and display them. The number of News items displayed can be adjusted on a per-site basis.  Someone from the OIS web team will install this for the site manager.

Templated Slider With Custom Slides

Create your own custom slides (very easy to do) so you can highlight any information that you like (not just News).  You have the ability to specify the order in which the slides appear as well as the ability to randomly change the number of slides that are cycled through the slider.  Someone from the OIS web team will install this for the site manager.

Templated Slider With Info Box

This templated slider displays custom slides along with an info box along the right side that will display custom static content.  You have the ability to specify the order in which the slides appear as well as the ability to randomly change the number of slides that are cycled through the slider.  Someone from the OIS web team will install this for the site manager.

Easy Slider

Easy Slider displays news items or content from a collection. It offers some unique options, such as a play/pause button, as well as the ability to choose different navigation controls.  Most sites use it to either rotate through a collection of images or to display their news.

Carousel

This is another way of displaying a site's News.  A Carousel cannot be placed on top of a landing page graphic like most of the slider options.  It can however be placed as a standard portlet or content well portlet which makes it the most flexible to place on a page.
