    How to add 'Flyers' (jpg) to GoCentral website.

    How do you add 'Flyers'(jpg) to GoCentral website?  If I use 'photos'...it's either too big or too small.  Isn't there a way to add a flyer (or a picture) and be able to size it...to the size you want?   THANKS!

    Hi @JitterSwing!

     

    GoCentral does not support the ability to resize images to any size you want - the reason being is that the site will render differently on different sized devices (phones, desktops, tablets) and that content all needs to dynamically resize along with the site in those different sizes. If you fixed the size, the image may get cut off or be unreadable at different resolutions. We also would generally recommend against using a jpg for content on your site that you would want a search engine to find - if, say, you've got a flyer about sales coming up, search engines can't read it if it's an image and potential visitors can't find you through searching. 

    We have a "Content" layout that may work for you though: if you add a "Content" section and scroll down the layout options, you'll see one that looks like this:

    If you just delete the copy from the copy fields (leave the CTA button or not, as you wish) then it will look like this:

    ... and it will dynamically resize on all devices. 

     

    Does that work?

    I tried your recommendation & found that images selected   either too small or big & blurred and could not crop. Am I doing something wrong? Did not understand your statement "it will dynamically resize".

     

    I wish to add some images & or clip art such as words (NEW) in place of icons which cannot be added.

     

    Any suggestions?

     

    Thanks
