News Theme




The News Theme is for the district or school that relies on the public site to get daily information out to the community in a text-heavy format that is easier to digest.  Feed posts, events, and photo stories are presented in a compact newspaper-like layout and design.  Like all eChalk themes, it is fully responsive and compatible with all devices.

How Colors Are Used


  • The News Theme uses the primary color selection for the background of the header, the titles of the content blocks and the background color of menus.  Click here to see where the primary color is used in this theme.
  • The secondary color selection is used as the background color for the main navigation.  Click here to see where the secondary color is used in this theme.
  • The tertiary color is used sparingly as an accent. Click here to see where the tertiary color is used in this theme.

Image Recommendations


  • Header Images are not recommended in the News Theme.
  • Header Images, if used, should be at least 1024 px by 1024 px so they do not appear pixilated or blurry when the image gallery is expanded.
  • Logos sit on top of a background in the selected primary color so they display best when they contrast the primary color selection. 
  • Logos should not exceed 200 px by 200 px.
