Image Sizes

All images should be uploaded to your image bank and optimized for the web.

Butler Market allows you to set your own content width and height. You can set it to a standard 3:2 ratio (ex: 1200×800) or something completely different (ex: 900×350). See the ‘Content width’ and ‘Content height’ settings under Special Features for more information. Intro and Gallery images should match those settings. Page and contact images should be roughly 80% of the content height setting and 40% of the content width setting. Vertically oriented images are recommended for page and contact images.

Enter the desired height of the content area under Site Settings > Template Settings. ex: 800

Intro Images

Under Site Settings > Intro/Texture upload images for the intro or background image that appears when your site opens. Press the upload new file button under Background/Intro and select a new image to upload. Intro images should be optimized and sized according to the template image specifications. Drag and drop the images to reorder them. Press the delete button on the right to delete an image.

Page Linking

To make a page link redirect to some other page (ie. http://google.com) Put the following as the first and only text in the page text: REDIRECT:http://google.com

Music

Music is uploaded into the music area under Site Settings. The jukebox will read ID3 tags from MP3 files. Depending on what music player you use, you may have to “Convert ID3 Tags…” before they are uploaded to your site. Otherwise the jukebox will not be able to read the song/artist information.

Calendar

To display the availability calendar, create a page called ‘calendar’ under the Pages tab. Manage the calendar’s page settings from the edit page option in the pages tab. To manage the calendar dates and content, go to the Calendar tab. Enter your calendar’s title and description, and press the submit button to save this information. Press the calendar boxes to select or deselect a day.

Page controls

When editing each page, you have the ability to control a page image, alignment, color, and a background texture. Select the up arrow to upload a page image. Select the page color by clicking the ‘Choose Color’ link below the Page Color header. If no color is selected the ‘Default page color’ setting under Site Settings > Colors is used. Adjust the slider to the right of the page color heading to control the opacity of the page color overlay. Select a background texture from the drop down menu below the Page Texture heading. You can also upload a texture of your own. Keep in mind that the page texture fills the area of the container. If the texture images proportions do not match those of the container, the texture image is cropped by the template to fill the container space. The page color overlays the texture with the opacity setting above. Select a desired page text alignment. Please note that selecting ‘center’ will not accommodate a page image.

if you want a page image to fill the whole background of the page, upload it as your page texture, set the page color opacity to 0, and don’t add a page image at that stage.
