Page Intro Content Type

Page Intro is the standard required heading for most York College pages.

To build a Page Intro:

  • In the section, click the Add Content button and selectYCP2016: Page Intro from the list of content types.
  • Decide whether to use an image or a YouTube video for the required graphic element on the left.
    • If you are using an image, create or obtain a JPEG format image that is 1200 pixels wide by 800 pixels tall and upload the image to your Media Library folder. Note: All images must be set to 72 dpi resolution for the website to display them without lagging.
    • If you are using a YouTube video, please work with the Office of Communications to get your video on the York College YouTube channel. We use our official college channel to track the analytics of visitors to our site. The college has partnered with a service to create closed captioning and video transcripts for all of our videos. When your video is set up on YouTube, Communications will provide you with the embed code and upload the video transcript file to your Media Library folder for you.
    • Enter a Name for the content.
    • Enter the Intro Heading . In most cases, the Intro Heading must match the section or page name for search engine optimization (SEO) on the web. You can enter the Intro Heading however you like on the form (all lowercase for example), but the system will automatically change it to all caps. It will display in large, bold, green font.
    • The Intro Tagline can be added as a brief, eye-catching intro for the text content of the page to support the Intro Heading .
      • If you are using an image, select the image you uploaded, using the Select link at right.
        • Enter the Image Caption .
      • If you are using a YouTube video, paste the embed code you received from the Office of Communications into the video field.
        • Enter the Video Caption .
        • Select the Video Transcript from yourMedia Library folder where Communications stored it.
    • The Intro Body HTML is the main text content. Links are acceptable in this content, but button links (which appear below the text content) are also offered which are more visible and engaging to the visitor.
