General Tips and Best Practices
Large Image Call to Action Option
The 2019 Large image CTA widget works in both a full width page such as a Specialized landing page, Core Site Landing Page or the Homepage OR it works just as nicely in a full-column width content area on inner pages.
How to do it:
Upload an image to the images manager, in the LiveWhale dashboard. Tag the image with “CTA” and any other tags to identify this particular image. The image title and caption will appear over the image.
To add a red button over the image, include a link on the last line of the caption, then make it bold.
Next, go to the page where you’d like to include this image. Go to the “Insert” option in the toolbar and add a widget to the page. Then choose the 2019 Large Image CTA widget from the list of global widgets. It will show a random image from this group tagged with CTA. You can add a widget tag to filter a particular image.
