Creating a Banner on a Website

Banners can exist on any page. A banner needs to be sized at least 960 pixels wide and 80 pixels tall. Larger items will be scaled down and can be repositioned.

Attach a graphic or use Pages to make a banner with images and text. There is also an option to provide a web link for the image and to add text to the graphic. Banners are saved, so you can easily create a banner library.

Creating a Banner in Canva (a TIL favorite)

Canva offers a variety of fonts, images, and backgrounds to help you create a professional looking banner.

Multiple Banners

You can rearrange banners by selecting edit in the upper left corner of the banner. Move your mouse over the left corner of the banner. The small square will allow you to slide the banner up or down.

Delete or Hide a Banner

There can be multiple banners on a webpage. When you add another banner the second banner will be displayed along with the first. If you only want a single banner to show, click edit and hide the banner. Hide will leave the banner in your banner library for access later.
