The Featured Content block is an excellent way of grabbing the attention of attendees visiting your website because it is often the first thing they will see. Add text that highlights the most important information about your event and choose an eye-catching image or video as your Featured Content block background.

Content

When you are adding a new or editing an existing Featured Content block these are the options in the "Content" tab. Learn how to add a new or edit an existing block.

Heading

The primary heading of your Featured Content block. Use the Advanced Editing Toolbar to add styling to the text.

Subheading and Text fields

Capture any secondary information in the "Subheading" and "Text" fields. Remember to keep these sections concise, capturing only the most necessary information. 

CTA Text and CTA Link fields

The CTA button allows you to quickly redirect your attendees somewhere important, e.g. the Registration page. The "CTA Text" field dictates the text of the button, whereas the "CTA Link" field is where you enter the link to where someone will be redirected. 

Tip: If you want to send your attendees to the Registration page via the CTA button, enter /register in the "CTA Link" field.

Video URL

In the "Video URL" field you are able to set the video that will play in the Featured Content block background. To enter a video URL you must first toggle the switch on. You can embed videos from YouTube and Vimeo, by entering either the video link or the embed code. 

Use the two checkboxes below this field to control whether the video will start automatically and whether it will be muted when starting. 

Tip: Featured Content block background videos play in a continuous loop. We suggest a video that is around 30 seconds long. 

Note: On mobile applications, the Featured Content block will fall back to the background image you have selected. Set your background image in the "Preferences" tab. 

Preferences

Background colour

Click the colour swatch to select a section background colour.  

Background image

Set the background image of your Featured Content block in the "Background Image" section. You can upload your file directly or by clicking the "Manually enter URL" link you are able to enter a secure image URL.

For best results, keep the following guidelines in mind. 

  • Select a rectangular landscape image - while both portrait and landscape images work, the latter has optimal dimensions.
  • Select a high resolution image - we suggest a minimum of 4916 pixels wide. This high resolution is required because we need to accommodate your website for multiple screen sizes. We recommend 4916 pixels by 1600 pixels. 

Tip: Free high resolution images that can be used for commercial purposes can be found on Unsplash.

Background CSS filter

You are able to change how your image is displayed by entering valid CSS properties. 

Tip: See examples of valid CSS filter properties here

Note: Only include filter property, not filter or ;

Show social share

Make it easier for attendees to share your event by enabling social sharing - simply toggle the "Social Share" switch. Add the URL you want your attendees to share, most likely your event URL. The social media icon will only appear if you have entered a URL in the corresponding field.

Minimum Height

The Minimum Height determines the minimum height in pixels of the Feature Content block.
