Parts of the extension

The General tab of the extension will automatically display in the main section of your screen.

Here you can add a title and description which will display in the blue area seen in the first screenshot above. You can also add some text to the 'About Content' area if you wish and also a page ARIA label to improve accessibility.

If you are not sure what a section on any of the tabs are for, just hover your cursor over the question mark icons next to each section heading and a hint will pop up.

The Hero Image tab gives you the option to add a full width hero image across the top of the About page when viewed.

You can add a hero image title and body text if you wish and if you choose "Hero Image Advanced Settings" in the graphic section, there is the option to upload different images for varying device sizes.

Again, if you are not sure what a particular setting does or what a field is for, hovering over the question mark will give you a hint.

The Appearance tab lets you change the icon that appears in the left navigation bar and the main extension header in live preview / published. You can see these in the 'how it looks' screenshot at the top of this article.

The About Content Items tab is when you can set the actual content items of the About extension. you can have as many or as few items as you like. From this screen you can re-order by click and hold on the 2 lines to the left and drag, duplicate or delete items.

Inside each item you can have a title, some body text, an image if you wish, which will site alongside the body text and you can choose if the image sits on the left or right of the text.
