Multimedia & Social Media

The UIC Red theme includes components for slideshows, videos and embedded feeds from Twitter and Facebook as demonstrated below. If you have a need to embed content from sources not included in these components, contact rednet@uic.edu and the Digital Communications staff will discuss your needs and assist in finding a solution.

SlideShow

See below for an example of a Slide Show component.  Slideshows require at least two images to be uploaded, along with Alt Text (for accessibility purposes).  You have the option to add captions to each specific slideshow image, as well as make the caption link somewhere else (by inputting a Image Caption URL).  Also, there is an optional input to attribute the image to a particular source/photographer.

Video

Adding video to your page is as simple as using the Video component, entering the URL of your video on YouTube, Vimeo and other services to embed it in the page. The component will automatically size your video for the page. This component also includes optional Title and Text fields.

Facebook (scrolling feed)

Twitter (1-20 posts)
