Feature items refer to the items that are displayed in the slider on the homepage.
Proceed as follows to create a new Feature item:
1. Go to Create content in the Drupal admin toolbar > Feature item. The Create Feature item page is displayed.
Fill out the title of the news item.
This title is used to compose the path of this page.
Provide the image that should be used in the feature item.
The image preferably consists of an object/person located to the left-hand side of the image and some space so the feature item intro text can be pasted on top of that space.
Important: the images must be exactly 705 x 293 pixels.
Click on the Browse button to navigate to your own personal folders.
Select the image you want to upload and click on Open.
Click on Upload to upload the image to the Feature item page.
uploads are restricted a maximum upload size of 8 MB and to the following file extensions: .jpg, . jpeg, .png.
4. Intro text
Provide an introductory text to this event. This intro text will be pasted on top of the image.
Drupal will automatically add a “Read more” link below the intro text, which leads the user to the URL specified in the Link text box (see below).
5. Padding left
As the dimensions of the object/person in the image will not always be identical, it is necessary to be able to adjust the distance between the utmost left-hand border of the image and the area where the intro text should be displayed.
Use the Padding left text box to specify the distance between the utmost left-hand border of the image and the intro text that is pasted over the image.
Fill out the URL of the page where this feature item should refer to.
