Component

Image Feature

Description 

 The Image Feature component adds a picture on one side and text with a background on the other side. You can designate which side holds the picture and which of the themed color choices is behind the text. Image Features can be helpful for putting a spotlight on popular topics, news items, and other “featured” items.

What it looks like 

Example image (Dec. 8, 2021, v. 2.4): 

Image Feature with photo on left and content on the right over a blue background

Customizations and notes 

Theme colors and alignment

  • By default, the il-blue theme is used. In the regular mode, this produces a blue gradient. In the overlay, it produces a solid dark blue. The text will be white. 
  • The il-orange theme also produces an orange gradient in regular mode and a solid orange in overlay mode. The text will be white in some places and black in others because white text on orange backgrounds is often not high enough contrast for accessibility needs.
  • The il-white theme produces a white background with dark blue text.
  • The alignment meaning changes based upon your mode.
    • In regular mode, align=”left” places the image on the left and the text on the right.
    • In overlay mode, align=”left” places the text inset on the left and most of the image on the right. 
    • align=”left” is the default behavior. 

Overlay options

  • By default, the text is presented side by side with the image.
  • The il-overlay class places the text on top of the image, which will stretch to fit the available space.
  • The overlay options provide some advanced CSS-based options which don’t apply to regular mode, including the ability to control the overlay width, opacity, and padding. See the Syntax Guide for more details.
