Personalizing your NUsites homepage

The first thing you should do when you receive one of our Global Marketing templates is personalize your homepage.

Personalize your Homepage by using the following steps:
  1. Log into your WordPress Dashboard:
    • Go to http://sites.northwestern.edu and click Log in on the white banner.
    • At the Online Passport screen, enter your NetID and NetID password, then click Log in.
  2. From the left menu, click Appearance.
  3. Select Customize.

Customizing the Header Lockup

The default header format is a single standard line of text. There are four additional options, but we recommend that you use the single line option unless you are a part of a larger entity.

To change the header on your new website:
  1. On the left menu, select Header Lockup.
  2. Change the text in the Lockup Line 1 text field.
  3. After making your site title changes, click the blue Save & Publish button.
Note: You will have to click the Save and Publish button every time you change something within the Customise menu.

Changing your Hero Image and Hero Image Text

  1. On the left menu, select Homepage.
  2. Click Hero Banner.
  3. Customize the four options, using the screenshot below for guidance:
  4. This image has a screenshot of the different hero banner fields and their corresponding locations on the webpage.
  5. To change your hero banner image, click Change Image and select your image from your desktop or drag it into the uploader.
    • Note: your hero banner image must be 1440px by 420px. We suggest cropping the image before uploading it.
  6. Once you have customized the four options and changed the hero banner image, please click the blue Save and Publish button.
