Images

There are four basic image types. For good quality, these images should be uploaded as JPG files exported at medium to high quality at the pixel sizes listed below:

  • Standard (2:1 ratio): 2000 x 1000 pixels, the main featured image for any post.
  • Square (1:1 ratio): 1000 x 1000 pixels, used primarily for podcast posts.
  • Special (ratio varies): Various sizes, used when a post shows up in an unusual location on the website where the Standard and Square images are not appropriate.
  • Hero (10:3 ratio): 3200 x 960, used for banners on some landing pages.

Organizing Posts:

Posts can be organized using the different categorization methods below. Categories, Associations and Marketing Lists especially will be essential for powering automated promotion of content across our websites.

  • Contributors: Written content authors, podcast hosts, etc.
  • Categories: For written content. Right now our main ones are Articles, News, and Stories.
  • Associations: Indicates a relationship between a piece of content and some department, initiative, major event, or other entity at Benedictine College.
    • E.g. If a post is related to the Center for Constitutional Liberty, setting the center as one of its associations will cause the post to show up on the center’s landing page.
  • Marketing Lists: To mark content for various marketing purposes. This is a way of communicating a content’s intended usage to other websites and to other team members.
    • E.g. Transforming Culture Website, Main Website Home News Feed, For Raven Fly-By, For Spirit of Giving
  • Video Series: Video content organized into seasons.
  • Podcasts: Audio content organized into seasons.
  • Lecture Series: Landing pages with groupings of related lectures
  • Promotion Types: A way of organizing promotion posts.
  • Tags: Tag URLs still work, but the tags are currently not publicly visible. We need to overhaul them.
