Our April 2021 release became available beginning 8AM on Friday, April 2nd 2021. Read below for information on the update on your site!
Add a video in the homepage header instead of a photo gallery!
Every eChalk theme now supports using video in the header instead of a photo gallery. You can easily add a video to give your site a dynamic new look. These kinds of background videos can be used to connect with your community, showcase your students, school grounds, sports, theater, etc.
Take a look at how we’ve done it on our demo site https://hs.svsd.echalk.com
We have built-in tools to let you control the speed, the transparency of the overlay, the color of the overlay, and if you’d like the video to loop or just play once.
We have increased the size of the Header Links List Icons so that they can be seen and used easier on all devices.
We have adjusted this theme to create more space for the content of the Navigation Panel. In order to do this, we have rearranged the footer slightly and moved the Google Translate widget to the top of the main content.
eChalk Help Center URLs
Several locations inside Guide were still pointing to an outdated Help Center link from the former eChalk HelpCenter
