Second Row of Icons

  • Broken Chain: removes the link that is currently selected in the editor
  • Bookmark: When you have a page with a lot of text and you want people to be able to skip down to a particular area, use an anchor.
    • For example, let's say a page called "About Us" has large amounts of text. You want to be able to jump down to a section that explains your history. Highlight the text you want to jump down to and select the anchor icon. Name the anchor something simple. Note that this is case sensitive and avoid using spaces or special characters. Remember what you name this anchor. For this example, let's name the anchor "history".
    • Go to the text that will send the user to the history section and select the link icon. In the URL field, paste in the URL for page that the contains the section you want to jump to. Type in "#" and then the anchor name as you wrote it in the first step. (Ex: http://your-domain.org/about-us/#history).
  • Photo: Choose from pictures you've already uploaded and insert them into Ekklesia 360.
    • It's possible to utilize an external URL to an image (though you may not have control over whether the image remains at that location).
    • Advanced Tab - Add margins around the image with Horizontal and Vertical Space, or add inline CSS in the Styles field.
  • Filmstrip: Insert or edit embedded movies
