Creating a Splash Page for Your Online Portfolio Website

Sometimes it may be desirable to create "Splash" page which acts as an introduction to the work on your portfolio. When you first build a Crevado Online Portfolio Website it will not include a Splash page but it's really easy to create one.

How to Create a Splash Page:

From Crevado Admin, click Pages:

Next, click on the Create Page button on the right of the screen:

A popup will open entitled Create New Page. Once here, under the heading Page Type click on the downward arrow. This will reveal a dropdown menu of Page Type options and you need to select the Splash Page option by clicking on it, as shown below:

You can then fill in the other options on the Create New Page popup, i.e. the Link Title and the Page Title, with whatever description you wish (for this article we have called both fields "Home"). When you are done, click the Create button:

Once you click on the Create button you are automatically brought back to the Pages area of your Crevado Admin. A yellow popup will appear at the top of the screen stating: "Page was successfully created".

Now, in your Pages area of Crevado Admin you will see that the new splash page (that we have named Home for this article), which you have just created, is at the top of your list of Pages. You now need to populate your splash page with some images! Do this by clicking on the Edit Page Content button to the right of the page title:

From here, you are able to populate your splash page by clicking on the Upload button and choosing some images one by one:

For every image that you upload (one image = one slide) you can specify a Strap Line and Link.

Note: Adding a Strap Line and/or Strap Line Link are optional; the choice is yours! You can add a different Strap Line and/or Strap Line Link to each of your images if you wish!

In the following screenshot you can see what the Strap Line looks like ("Dont' Create Limitations") when it's displayed on the splash page of our Crevado Online Portfolio Website:

If you have also enabled the Strap Line Link then users will be able to click on the strap line to be taken to the Link of your choice.

Customizing the Slider on your Splash Page

Full Screen Mode

Splash pages come with a bunch of other customization options which are accessible underneath the Slider management area:

When Full Screen mode is enabled your slider will cover the entire screen and the website header and navigation will be hidden:

When disabled, your header and navigation will remain visible (and also clickable):

Automatically Jumping to a page after the slider finishes

The Jump Page option allows you to automatically take a visitor to another page on your Online Portfolio after the last slide on your Slider has been viewed. This option is especially useful when combined with a Slider which is set to advance slides automatically. To set the Jump Page, Click on the Jump Page option box:

Once clicked you can select the Jump Page from the Pages dropdown:

Click on the Save button to save your selection.

A yellow popup at the top of the page will state Setting Updated. Also, you will see that the Page you have chosen to jump to is now written under the heading Jump Page:

NOTE: To disable the jump page simply select - No Jump Page - from the dropdown.

Automatically advance slider

This allows you to automatically advance the slider at a predefined interval. Adjust the interval by dragging the blue dot horizontally, or clicking on the desired interval:

As always, we value your feedback, if the Slider doesn't satisfy your needs just let us know!
