Successfully navigating and understanding social video has five key elements

Our V-Element Model

Creative      Production      Data      Management      Strategy


Creative

Want a strong call-to-action right in your header? Check the Enable Nav Button tweak option to turn the last link in your main navigation into a button.


Production

There are several ways to use the Banner area at the top of the page.

 

Page Banner

In a Page, Blog List, Events List, Product List, or Album page, you can create a large banner in Settings (in Site Manager). Just upload a Thumbnail Image, and add your text to the Description field.

  • Bolded text will become a Headline
  • Links on the last line will become Buttons

 

Blog Featured Slideshow

Created a slideshow of Featured Posts in Blog List view by featuring individual posts. Your five most recent Featured Posts will automatically be placed into a slideshow at the top of the Blog

 


Data/Analytics

Bedford features sidebars that appears in several situations:

  • Folder Navigation, on the left of any Page inside a Folder
  • Category Navigation, on on the left any Product List with categories
  • Blog Sidebar, on the right side of Blog pages

You can choose to show the title of the Folder or Product collection. If you don’t want to show the sidebars, you can choose to hide them entirely with a Style Editor option.


Management

Bedford’s Index allows you to stack multiple Pages on top of each other. Each Index Page will feature all the banner options available to other Pages in the site, including the Page Banner, Page Banner Slideshow, and Simple Image Banner options.


The Index also features a Fixed Navigation, which will appear after you scroll past the first Page in the Index. This navigation is only available while browsing an Index in Bedford.
