What are Information Cards?
The information cards are flexible content containers that serve as quick links to some of the more prominent or perhaps even the more frequently visited areas of your parish website. For this tutorial, we will explore the flexibility of the information cards, how to add a card, how to arrange the cards on your homepage, and how to delete a card.
What Each Information Card Offers
Each information card provides the following customizable fields:
- Image: Click the Insert button to choose an image from your site's image repository or to upload an image. Images should be
- Card title: Positioned just below the image, titles should not be too wordy but rather, should be as concise as possible.
- Description: We suggest no more than two brief, descriptive phrases
- Link title (button text): Consider using an action like “Learn More”, “Donate”, or “Watch Now” to encourage your site visitors to click.
- Link: Add a link to a page or file within your parish website or a link to an external website.
Information Card Image Size
Images for your information cards should have a consistent pixel size so that there is uniformity to your homepage. You may use images that are 1200x630 pixels in size (the same size recommended for the homepage slider). Please ensure that these images are no greater than 150KB in file size.
Editing & Adding Information Cards
1. Edit your parish homepage and scroll down to the Information Cards section towards the bottom of the page.
2. For sites that do not have any information cards present on the homepage, begin by filling in the fields in the blank information card provided.
3. To add a new infocard to your group, click the green plus sign (+) located in the top right corner of each infocard.
NOTE: Four infocards should be able to serve your parish well without taking up too much real estate on your parish homepage. Too many information cards can cause confusion amongst your visitors. Consider setting up a schedule for updating your site's infocards on a regular basis so as to keep the content fresh.
