Media Gallery

The Media Gallery content types let you build out an image or video gallery on your page.


Important Information

The Image Item content type and Video Item content type post an image or video to your page (respectively) when paired with a placeholder.

At a Glance

Requires Placeholder Yes
Placement Almost anywhere
Special Setup None
Image Sizes
  • Thumbnail: 237x178
  • Full: 880x495
  • Resolution: 72*

*This is absolutely essential! Using print quality images (300+) will cause your page to load slowly or not at all.


Special Note:

The Video Item content type is still pending some of the more modern updates the "Video" content type has already received. This means the URL needed for a gallery of videos varies slightly.

Current Restrictions:

  • YouTube support ONLY
  • Uses the "Embed" URL

The URL can be found within the "Embed" code generated by YouTube. This will look similar to: 

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/eh9lw4Un7mQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The entire iframe code isn't necessary, instead just copy the URL from the "src" area:
