Each session or in-person session needs these images and text. Some other items are optional, like videos and files.

What content looks like

Before users open a session page, they might see the session in a rotator, grid, or list module. It displays the session’s image, name and abstract. Most modules use the smaller list image. Featured rotators use the larger banner image.

Modules can look different depending on their configuration. Learn more about modules.

Sessions on a module page.

The schedule page is another place users find sessions. It displays the session’s name and abstract without the image.

Sessions on the schedule page.

Then users enter the session page. When it’s Upcoming or Past, the page displays the image, description, downloadable resources, and any attached speakers and sponsors. The abstract isn’t displayed because it’s meant to be a short preview or summary of the description.

An upcoming session page.

When the session is Live, the image is replaced by the session’s video feed. The rest of the information displays at the bottom of the page.
