OverviewBack to top
Change the look of your Hero Page from the Hero Page Settings page found through the link below the Layout options.
Hero Image DisplayBack to top
At the top of the booking portal is a Hero Image, which can be a static image or a YouTube video. This is the first thing your Customers see when they arrive at your booking page.
- JumbotronBack to top
To use a static image as your Hero Image, select the Jumbotron option for the Hero Image Display setting.
Click Choose File next to Hero Image in order to locate the image on your computer.
If you wish to change an image already in place, then click on the Delete Hero Image button.
Image Resolution and Dimensions
The image should be at least 1920 x 450 resolution. Image sides appear cropped on smaller displays. To reduce cropping, use an image taller than 450px.
- YouTube Background VideoBack to top
With this setting, you can select a YouTube video to be displayed as the Hero Image. This plays automatically, without sound, when a Customer arrives at the page.
Simply enter the URL of the video from YouTube and click Save.
If you add a Youtube background video and the video fails to load, then the booking page defaults to show a sample image.
To prevent this and have the image default to one of your choosing instead, upload a Jumbotron Hero Image first and then add the Youtube background video as in the steps above.
