Add/Edit/Remove Banner Images or Galleries in Joomla

Banner Images and Galleries are both managed through Widgetkit. 

Banner images are the large images at the top of a webpage. They most often appear on the Home page, but they are frequently on inner pages as well. To edit the banner images on your homepage or inner pages, follow this guide. To add new banner images, please call Techno Goober for help. 

Galleries are a collection of images on a page. These are helpful for Portfolio pages or to display the images from a past event. Adding images to an existing gallery and deleting gallery items are easy tasks. To add a new gallery to a page, please call Techno Goober for help. 

For more information about where a page content is located, visit Page Layout. If you need any help making changes to your website, call Techno Goober for help at (302) 645-7177 or contact us online
