About Static infographics

What is the purpose of a Static infographics page?

A Static infographics page is similar to a Photo gallery. However, it is specially optimized for showcasing images that include text or other fine details (such as infographics and cartoons).

How is a Static infographics page optimized for displaying images?

A Static infographics page offers the following optimizations for displaying images:

  • Minimal compression for higher quality images.
  • A white background for optimal visability.

The following page features help you create a cleaner look with emphasis on the main content:

  • A Caption is not immediately visible below each image (visitors need to click or tap an image to reveal the Caption).
  • Regions with links to related content are not displayed on the right side of the page.
  • The page Title is hidden by default. Tick Display title if you prefer to display the title.

Complete required settings

To create a new Static infographics page, go to New > Interactive > Static infographics in the top menu.

You must complete the following required settings before saving the Static infographics page:

  • Add at least one image. For detailed information, go to the following section:
  • Select General in the left panel and complete the following required settings:
    • Title: Enter a title for the Static infographics page. Tick Display title if you want the title to be visible on the published page.
    • Categories: Add the page to at least one Category.

The status controls when the Static infographics page is available on the public website. Manage the status using the drop-down menu at the top of the screen. For more information, see the following article:

Add images

NOTE: The instructions below assume the images you want to use are already uploaded to Pangea CMS. To learn how to upload new images, see the following article:

To add images to the Static infographics page:

  1. Hit Select content on the Images screen.
  2. Select your preferred option:
    • Internal: Search for images uploaded by Pangea CMS users.
    • External: Search for images from external agencies (Reuters and AP).
  3. Adjust the additional search filters in the left panel according to your preferences, then hit Search.
  4. Select + Attach (the plus icon) next to each image you want to use.

The attached images appear under Attached items in the right panel. The following options are available:

Hit Save to confirm the selection and return to the Images screen.

Manage images

The following options are available for each image:

Crop an image

If necessary, select the Crop the image icon to crop the image. During cropping, the optimal 16:9 aspect ratio is automatically maintained to ensure the image is properly displayed on the public website.

Create the caption

In the Caption box, create the image caption. On the public website, this is visible below the image when a visitor opens it in fullscreen. The image Title is pre-filled by default.

The following information is not visible on the public website but might help you formulate the Caption:

  • (A): Image Metadata
  • (B): The internal image description

If necessary, hit Restore to default to return the Caption to its default state (the image Title).

Change the position

Use the drop-down menu in the bottom-left corner to set the position of each image. For example, if you select 1, the image is displayed first.

Delete an image

Hit Delete to remove an image from the Static infographics page

Manage General settings

Select General in the left panel to manage the following settings:

  • Status: Adjust the status of the page.
  • Publication date & time: Adjust the publication date and time that is displayed at the top of the page. Optionally schedule publication.
  • Last update: Specify when the Static infographics page was last updated. If filled, the information is visible on the public website.
  • Title: Adjust the title of the Static infographics page. Tick Display title if you want the title to be visible on the published page.
  • Introduction: Enter a brief introductory text. Tick Display introduction if you want the introduction to be visible on the published page.
  • URL Slug: Enter a text string that is added to the URL and enhances visibility via search engines.
  • Categories: Adjust the Categories for the Static infographics page.

Use the preview

Use the options under Preview in the left panel to check how the page will look on devices with different screen sizes (desktop, tablet, or mobile).

You cannot use Preview until the required settings are filled. However, it is not necessary to save the Static infographics page before previewing it.

You can also use the Live site button at the top of the screen to open the currently published page on the public website (applies only if the status of the Static infographics page is Published).
