Feature Stories to the Editorial
27. July 2010
Institute, department, and work group announcements can be publicised on the homepage and in the calendar as follows: Select one of the 3 contribution types and click on the appropriate link to open a form for submission to the editiorial team.
a. News image as startpage
The submitted article image is selected at random from the currently available pool of news images (from the current day of submission onwards) for generating a start page in the user’s browser session. The image is briefly shown enlarged in the dashboard and then dissolved into a colour palette that merges with the page colour of the respective session. A preview image (thumbnail) also appears in the calendar next to the article text.
Please do not use any images containing text for news images, since this may result in unappealing cross-dissolves.
b. News text dashboard – calendar item with image
The start page displays up to 5 calendar items with date and title. The submitted image appears in the calendar next to the article text as a preview image (thumbnail).
c. News text dashboard – calendar item without image
The start page displays up to 5 calendar items with date and title. The article text appears in the calendar without a preview image (thumbnail).
