Notes:

  • Images must be in JPG, PNG, or GIF format to display on the page.

How to add the ‘Image and Text’ feature to your website:

  1. From the ‘Edit Content’ tab, click ‘Pages’ and open the page on which you’ll be working
  2. Click ‘Add feature’
  3. Select the ‘Image and Text’ feature
  4. Use the placement arrows on that page to set the feature’s location

‘Image and Text’ display options

There are several display options listed within the ‘Image and Text’ feature, in the settings pane at the left. These options control how your image and text work together on the page. You’ll be able to adjust options like text wrap, alignment, and image position further using these options.

  • Split: The image on one side, text on the other side.
  • Collage: Image on one side with the text overlapping part of the image.
  • Stack: Image is on the top, bottom, or below headings.
  • Text on image: Text displays overtop of the image.

Note: It is not an option to change the colors directly within the ‘Image and Text’ feature. To change the colours, the corresponding section style must be adjusted through the ‘Edit Theme’ tab, and these changes will apply to all sections using that style.
