How do I pick photos for the strip above?

The photos on this page are pulled from a Gallery you’ve assembled and tagged “Header Photos.” You just have to tag the gallery, not each individual photo.

The appropriate number of words on a page depends on its purpose and audience. If it is one of your main landing pages, it should be short (100-250 words), and paired with images and stories. 

Pages deeper in the site that provide details can be up to 500 words. If you have a very text-heavy, informational page, use friendly headers to guide readers all the way to the bottom—or consider breaking the information out onto additional pages.

Headers (like this one)

Heavy blocks of text are hard to read. And important facts can get lost along the way. Along with short paragraphs, headings help web readers find their place and absorb information more quickly. As a general rule, there ought to be a heading for every 125 or so words. As you can see from this page, using them more often works too.

Links in text

Links within the text are important means of guiding your users to important info. They limit duplicate information and help keep visitors moving to key content throughout the site. You can also add a “Related Links” list to highlight additional pages or programs.

Great work!

Just by editing web pages, you’re making your site better. Thanks for your help!
