Header slideshow

The header slide is the topmost part of the Visitnorway website (underneath the header).  Normally, the header slide contains a main image, video or 360-image, as well as the page’s main title. Most pages have a header slide, but it is not a required field. If the page has a header slide, the title of the page will be superimposed on the slide, and this title should function as the page’s only H1 title. All other titles on the page should be H2 or smaller.

Almost all pages on Visitnorway should have a main image, video or 360-image, which needs to be prepared in three different versions, for different uses:header slideshow

Main header image

This is the image that displays at the top of the page, on desktop and tab views of the site. The H1 title of the header slide will be superimposed on top of this image in these views. The CMS also gives possibility for using video and 360-images as main header image, where it is suitable to do so. For video as main header image, please follow these steps. Please contact Art Director Chris Arnesen with regards to 360 images.

Mobile header image

This is the image that displays at the top of the page, on the mobile view of the site. The H1 title of the header slide will be superimposed on top of this image in these view.

Preview image

This is the image that will display in internal previews that link to the page where this is used. This image will also be used for the «recently viewed pages» section, but will then be automatically cropped to a square format.
