Getting Started: How to build web pages and in Event Farm
Best Practices: Things to keep in mind when building web pages
- Assets that will be stretched or full width should be between 1200 - 2000 pixels wide. All other assets should be less than 1000 pixels wide.
- Avoid designs and content that uses multiple columns as they do not always perform well on narrower mobile screens.
- Keep header images less than 600 pixels high, so guests do not have to scroll down to see the registration form.
- Whenever possible, clone the details from a previous event. Editing and tweaking a previous design is usually easier than starting from scratch.
