[CLOSED] Adding Text in Banner in 8204 Portal
Platinum Member
FocalPoint Community,

My question today is this: Is the method I used below in my previous 8.1.05 environment still the best course of action for my 8.2.04 portal? I need to keep the text and image in the banner responsive, and I need the banner to be clickable.

Earlier, I brought in an html file (created in 8.1.05 according to the instructions below), but it did not seem to be responsive.

So, I picked apart the components. My supervisor put the logo by itself in an image. I brought that in. Then, we back-filled the banner to the color we wanted. Next, I attempted to insert a text panel on the banner, but the designer does not seem to be allowing me to change font size, color.

I'm wondering if I need to rebuild the html file in 8204 as a responsive html file with the appropriate image/text combination on it for use in the portal.

I found another older post that two or three users indicated that's what they had done with logos and texts in 8105 because they were having trouble with the sizing, justification, etc. of text in the banner. Thoughts?

Again, I've placed the instructions I followed in 8.1.05 below for others to see.

Here's a technique to accomplish this in 8.105:

In App Studio's HTML composer, Insert the logo or image you want to use flush to the top left corner of the page.
Click Requests & Data Sources and create a URL request with the url you'd like to open when user clicks the image.
Click Tasks and Animations and add a task that'll call the request you created above when the image is clicked.

When you run this html, you'll get a clickable image which goes to the url. To add this to the Portal.
Edit Portal.
Remove the image (if you already have one).
Insert a Panel Container into the Banner and have it launch the html file you created above. Also, Hide Title Bar for this panel.
Now all you have is the logo that will let you hyperlink to the url.
