You can also check the links on any webpage that you have open, by simply click on Check Links button at the bottom of the screen.

Inserting Images for News Items

You can add images for news items on the homepage. The picture must be exactly 100 x 100 pixels in size. You cannot resize the image after it is in the Zope system. When you create your news item, click on the Browse button and locate the image. The image will automatically be uploaded to the Zope server. Only gifs and images can be used.

Images can be converted from other formats to jpgs and gifs by using a graphic editing software such as PhotoShop Elements. Elements may also be used to resize graphics to 100 x 100 pixels.

Using Links in a News Item
You may insert links into news item text.  Links will not work on the homepage, but they will work when viewing the entire news item.

Graphic Sizes in General

With regard to the display size, the general rule of thumb is to keep graphics at 250-300 pixels wide. It is usually better to keep the graphics on the small side so that it is balanced with the text. There are exceptions such as when you need to show details that cannot be seen in a smaller image size.

With regard to file size of a graphic, it is best to keep them under 100 KB.  If you are using images made with a digital camera, they can be very large and will have to be resized using appropriate photo editing software.

If you have any questions, please direct them to Charley Wolfe, 222-3517.
