your computer. Note: Recommended image size for your logo is 112x112 or larger and recommended Banner size is 1600x350. 
  • Logos appear at the top of your site and is cropped to a square ratio.
  • Favicons appear beside the page title in browser tabs and are associated with your site if it's bookmarked
  • Banner images appear at the top of your homepage.
  • Branding colour appears across the front end of your site and the upload page. Use the colour wheel to create a colour or enter your school or institutions hex code for a custom colour. 
You also have the option to remove the logo and banner if desired. 

4) To remove the logo or banner uncheck the box next to "Show the logo in the header of your site" or "Show a banner on the homepage".



Note: Incorrectly sized images run the risk the being cut off if they are too large. If an image it too small, it will be stretched and will likely look distorted. Make sure that you are uploading your images with the correct dimensions for optimal results.

5) Slider Item Style and adding additional sliders

Choose either the overlay card style which will display the title and additional information over the thumbnail when you hover over top, or choose the card option where information will be displayed below the thumbnail image. 

You can also add additional custom sliders that are based on collections or tags. Simply click on the dropdown arrow beside "Add a slider" and select the type of slider you'd like to add. 



6) Customize the Media View Page and Display options on the Home Page

You also have the ability to customize some features on the "View Page". You can remove the ability to users to share and embed your content from the media view page. This is a global feature so unchecking these boxes will remove this ability for all of your users. Lastly, you have many display options to choose from on the homepage such as removing the ability for users to see Likes and Views.
