  • Search: You can also use the HTML  element to add a search box on the homepage. After dragging the HTML element onto the homepage, copy and paste the following into the element: <webdambp.headersearch></webdambp.headersearch> 

Click Preview in the top bar, then click Back to go back to the editing screen.

When you’re ready to publish, click Publish. When you’re finished, click Exit.

Adjust elements:

  • Resize: Click the  icon to change the size of the element.

  • Edit: Click the  icon to add or replace the assets in image, folder or lightbox element.

  • Delete: Click the icon to delete the element.


Carousel image tips:

  • For optimal display, make your carousel images  1,265x435 pixels.
  • If you want to add text over an image, add images o the carousel with the subject or focal point a little left or right of center.
  • The center of an image is the main focus, and resizing the carousel or viewing the homepage on a phone or tablet will crop the image around the center.
  • You may need to edit your images to fit these requirements.

    For the carousel the images are showing up pixelated even though they are high resolution images. I've had to end up reducing the element size just to make it look decent. Any reason why this is happening? It would also be helpful if they was a way to size the photo within the carousel no matter what size you have the element box resized to.

    I am having the same issue with images pixelating and I have resized them to the suggested 1265x435 pixels size. What DPI do you suggest? Can you confirm the number of images the carousel will hold? Are their size maximums to how large an image can be? We're trying to rotate between 8-10 images - system is maxing out at 6 and the last page is appearing with a grey screen. I have put in a support ticket as well
