When to use the 360° gallery component
Use the 360° gallery component to display panoramic images that users can rotate to explore a University location, room, or event.
You can only use panoramic images created by the supplier Revolution Viewing.
Finding the 360° gallery component
You can find the 360° gallery component on the Campaign template in Typecase.
To find the component:
- Open the drop-down menu under 'Drag and drop components'.
- Select '360° gallery'.
- Click 'Add component'.
The 360° gallery will appear beneath 'Component(s) currently in use'.
You can only add one 360° gallery component to a page.
Adding content to the 360° gallery component
You can add up to six different Panoramic images to a 360° gallery component.
Setting up the component
- Add a heading to the 'Title' field to tell users what the images are about.
- In the 'Summary' field, explain more about the images so users know what they'll gain from them.
Embedding a Panoramic image
- Click 'Add panoramic image'.
- Paste the URL for your Revolution Viewing image into the 'Panoramic embed address (URL)' field.
- Add a caption to explain what the image shows.
Adding a thumbnail image
You must add a thumbnail image to help people choose the panoramic view they want to see.
The image should be 800 x 450 pixels or larger, in a 16:9 ratio.
To add a thumbnail image:
- Take a still screenshot of part of the panoramic image to show what the image features.
- Upload the screenshot to Flickr.
- Paste the image URL into the 'Thumbnail image web address (URL)' field.
Things to avoid
Don't use any panoramic images that haven't been created by the supplier Revolution Viewing. Typecase will not support other images and they may not display properly.
Don't add panoramic views of spaces or events unless they're relevant to the rest of the content on the page. All content should add value to the page and not distract a user from completing their task.
Moving your content around the page
You can drag and drop each Panoramic image to change the order they appear in the 360° gallery.
You can drag and drop the 360° gallery component to reorder the components on a page.
Click 'Collapse this section' to minimise a 360° gallery component while you work on other areas of the page. The component will still appear on the preview and published pages if you collapse part of the template.
