*These sizes are only recommendations and can be adjusted based on your needs. It is important to consider the size of the images and average browser window size. For instance, larger images will fit available space better on larger screens but will also have larger files sizes and take longer to download.
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 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. Please use version 2.4 for best results. It may be necessary to enter artist and song information if either is not defined.
To display the availability calendar, select the add calendar check box at the bottom of the page you wish to add the calendar to. To manage the calendar dates, go to Pages > Calendar. Press the calendar boxes to add or edit events to your calendar.
To display the contact form, select the add contact form check box at the bottom of the page to which you wish to add the contact form.
Upload an image for the background texture under Site Settings > Intro/Texture. Press the upload new file button under Texture and select a new image to upload. Texture images should be sized to a minimum of 1400 x 1050 pixels. To remove the texture press the delete button to the right of the image.
Under Site Settings > Template Settings enter the amount of time in seconds an image should display in gallery slideshows before loading the next image.
Under Site Settings > Template Settings enter ‘yes’, ‘on’, or ‘true’ to have the gallery slide show auto start when entering a gallery.
Enter the desired title for your categories and galleries under Site Settings > Template Settings. The default title is ‘portfolio’.
When a category is clicked, it brings up a menu of images with labels for each gallery. By default these images are loaded from the first image in each gallery. To show a custom image for each gallery, upload an image with that gallery’s name to the image bank for each gallery. Then enter ‘no’ in the Auto menu thumbnails field under Site Settings > Template Settings.
Santiam Pass can be set to load images randomly from all of the galleries in the images admin area. To set this up, enter ‘yes’ in the Do intro from gallery images field under Site Settings > Template Settings. Once this is set, images uploaded under Site Settings > Intro/Texture will not be loaded.
Santiam Pass allows control over how many images can be shown per set on the intro page. Enter the desired number of images to be shown on the intro page in the Intro images per set field under Site Settings > Template Settings. Any amount greater than 3 entered in this field will set the images to load in two rows.
A good place to start is around 400 width by 100 height in pixels. If you need the logo bigger/smaller, just resize the logo in your image editing program and then re-upload into the admin.

Font Modifiers allow you to increase or decrease the size of the text from its default size (set at 0) for your Site Title, Navigation, and Pages. This is most helpful when selecting fonts that render at small sizes.
Social media icons and links to networks like facebook and twitter can be added to Santiam Pass. Under Site Settings > Profile under the Social Media section, add a reference to the image for a given social network and a link to a page on that network using the following format:
In this case, the images ‘facebook.png’, and ‘twitter.png’ should be uploaded to the image bank. Both pngs and jpgs can be used for these icons. There are many places to find social media icons for your site. Here is an example of one set.
Social media icons can also be added to the bottom of any page by adding the same code found in Site Settings > Profile prefixed by the text ‘SOCIAL MEDIA:’. The final text should look like this at the bottom of the page text section:
