There will be a WordPress training on Tuesday, April 10, 11 am-12:15 pm at Drexel Library’s Instruction Lab (on the old side) that will use Beaver Builder 2.0. If you would like to attend, please register here.
Adding images is a great way to spruce up web content. Images can help to describe your content, support a point, and allow the reader to better envision what you are talking about!
Most modern cameras take photos that are far too large to upload to the web – including very large images on web pages can be a problem for your users. A user on a mobile device may have difficulties downloading your very large file image.
There are many tools available that will help you to resize photos for the web. Photoshop, Picasa, and Apple Photos are all great tools that you can use to resize your photos.
If you do not have any of these tools, you can utilize an online tool called Pixlr to resize your images. Follow the instructions below to learn how to use this tool.
If you recently logged into the admin area for Clubs & Orgs (clubs.sju.edu), or Sites (sites.sju.edu), you may have noticed the log in page has an updated “SJU” feel, with new background imagery and logo. Once you are logged in, the interface is new with updated colors, graphics, and typography.
New Log in Pages:
This is all due to the latest WordPress OS upgrade, version 3.8.Read about some of the highlights of the new version upgrade below.
If you have any questions, or issues with the new update, or want to get a site or blog for your club, org, or department, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Introducing a modern new design
The new WordPress dashboard has a fresh, uncluttered design that embraces clarity and simplicity.
The Open Sans typeface provides simple, friendly text that is optimized for both desktop and mobile viewing. It’s even open source, just like WordPress.
We think beautiful design should never sacrifice legibility. With superior contrast and large, comfortable type, the new design is easy to read and a pleasure to navigate.
WordPress on every device
We all access the internet in different ways. Smartphone, tablet, notebook, desktop — no matter what you use, WordPress will adapt and you’ll feel right at home.
High definition at high speed
WordPress is sharper than ever with new vector-based icons that scale to your screen. By ditching pixels, pages load significantly faster, too.
Pick a color
We’ve included eight color schemes so you can pick your favorite. Choose from any of them below to change it instantly.
Refined theme management
The new themes screen lets you survey your themes at a glance. Or want more information? Click to discover more. Then sit back and use your keyboard’s navigation arrows to flip through every theme you’ve got.
Smoother widget experience
Drag-drag-drag. Scroll-scroll-scroll. Widget management can be complicated. With the new design, we’ve worked to streamline the widgets screen.
Have a large monitor? Multiple widget areas stack side-by-side to use the available space. Using a tablet? Just tap a widget to add it.
