The feature block should not be used for primary website navigation, static images, or stories which appear permanently or for long periods of time (as these aren't really features).
Images should not contain logos.
If still using the standard feature with ANU window overlay, feature images should not include any text other than the ANU window.
Websites may use feature blocks to highlight news, events or interesting stories, and they usually link to a webpage on your site with further details.
Content should change regularly (at least once a month) and should be relevant to the website and its activities. Features are a means to highlight information, but should not normally be the only location on your website where that information appears.
The feature block may be turned on and off if feature stories are only available during certain times. For example, if you have a feature story that is only relevant for two weeks of the year, the feature bar can appear on the homepage for those two weeks only.
If you use the PHP templates, follow these instructions to install features.
No window features
Standard features can be used on any page of your site to highlight transient items of interest. The standard features should be the first item of content on the page, alongside the site menu, and must include a title, summary and image.
By design, the feature rotator can show up to eight stories.
Feature images should be 320px by 215px. Images with dark backgrounds work best because they appear as a well-defined box against the white background of the page.
Please note, the ANU window homepage features are no longer used and should be replaced by the No window feature.

This type of feature can also be used on sites using fullwidth layouts.
