Create a Static infographics page


What's inside this article:

Basic information

This article explains how to create a new Static infographics page from Pangea CMS.

Go to Create > Interactive > Static infographics to create a new Static infographics page.

The Static infographics content type is optimized for displaying images that include text and other fine details (such as maps and cartoons). A Static infographics page offers the following special features:

  • Minimal compression to display images in a higher quality.
  • A white background for optimal visability.
  • A cleaner page with fewer visual elements. For example, image captions are not directly visible on the page. If preferred, you can also hide the title.

Create the main title

Via General > Title, create the main title for the Static infographics page.

By default, the title will not be visible on the published page. To display the title, tick the box next to Display title.

The Display title setting controls if the title is visible on the Static infographics page. If this option is unticked, the title is still displayed on other public pages.

Create a URL slug

After you create the main title, we suggest creating a URL slug. The URL slug is included in the URL for the Static infographics page. Creating a URL slug for a content page improves usability and SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

Create a URL slug via General > URL slug. For detailed information, see the following article:

Select Categories

You cannot save the Static infographics page until it is added to at least one Category. Categories in Pangea CMS organize the content on your site by topic. For example, your site might have a "Politics" Category for all content relating to politics.

Go to General > Categories to add the Static infographics page to one or more Categories.

If you select multiple Categories, select one Primary Category. Click your chosen Primary Category so it is marked blue.

For detailed information, see the following article:

Add images

To add images to the Static infographics page, go to Images > Add images.

You might add the following images:

  • Internal images: Images that have been manually uploaded to Pangea CMS by you or another CMS user.
  • External images: Images from the following external agencies:
    • AFP (Agence France-Presse)
    • AP (Associated Press)
    • Reuters

To search for an image, select the relevant tab:

  • Internal: Search for an internal image.
  • External: Search for an external image.

Crop images

By default, every image on a Static infographics page is displayed in full with no cropping. This includes vertical images and other images that use a non-standard aspect ratio.

If you do not want to display an image in full, hit the Crop the image button to manually crop the image.

Add captions

The caption provides context for the image and explains its relevance on the page. Captions are not displayed directly on Static infographics pages. However, captions are displayed via the carousel view that loads after a visitor clicks or taps an image.

For each image, add the caption in the Caption box. The English Title for the image is prefilled by default as the caption. However, it is important to create a custom caption in the local language for your site.

The following additional information is provided to help you formulate the caption and will not be visible on the public site:

  • (A): Metadata: The metadata for the image.
  • (B): Description: The internal image description.

If necessary, hit Restore to default to revert the caption back to its default value (the default value is the English Title for the image).

Reorder images

To change the position of an image on a Static infographics page, use the drop-down menu in the bottom-left corner of the box. For example, if you select 1, the image is positioned first.

Choose a website teaser image

The website teaser image for a Static infographics page is visible when the page is previewed on the public site (for example, in the search results and on widgets).

By default, the first image on the Static infographics page is used as the website teaser image.

If preferred, go to the Website teaser settings and select a custom website teaser image. Add your preferred image under Horizontal image and Vertical image.
