[Product Post] Theme Tip: Modifying Social Groups

One thing you will notice in the video is the logo and the banner image used in the sample Social Group. To ensure your images look great, you should use the following sizes:

  • For the Group Icon: Your image should be no bigger than 100 x100
  • For the Banner Image: Your image dimensions should not exceed 940 x200.

In terms of look and feel, you can modify each of the components of the group pages using CSS. Here are the key classes you can use to add CSS markup.

/* CSS for Group Events */
.Group-Events {

/* CSS for Group Announcements */
.Group-Announcements {

/* CSS for Group Discussions  */
.Group-Discussions {

One idea, for example, could be changing the background of Events or Announcements so they really stick out.
