Home Page Banner Graphics

    I was wondering if there is a way to create a banner type graphic on our Pages?  I have created an application where my participants utilize their own home page.  I would like to be able to share inspirational type graphics each week as part of their home page.  Possibly in a banner format if its something we can do.  Similar to Facebook pages, event pages, etc.  I've played around with the option to add an image.. but it doesn't seem to really work for what i'm envisioning.

    Any one have suggestions on how it could work?

    Thanks!

    You can have a 1 record / 1 field report in the Home Page to display an image.  Then just change the image from time to time, ie change the file attachment.

    Mark,

    Do you know what size graphic to use so the image isn't tiny?  Ideally I would like the graphic to be the width of the home page... but not take up the length.. Maybe a little bit bigger than the header section on a word document but similar in shape. I also want the size so that you don't have to scroll to see it.  Its just.. boom .. there :)

    Typically the syntax will be 

    "<img src=" & URLRoot() & "up/" & Dbid() & "/a/r" & [Record ID#] & "/e7/v0" & "\" width=\"300\">";

    where e7 means that the file attachment is in field ID # 7


    Then you play with the width parameter until it looks OK.​
