Photo Galleries^/Photo Slider/Larger Photos: High-quality photography is a central part of the redesigned website. Under the main story on the home page and on team pages, a “photo slider” is featured where the latest event photo albums scroll across the screen to give visitors quick access to the most recent pictures. Also a central Photo Albums webpage has been created so fans can view photo galleries based on the sport that they are interested in. There are photo albums for each of the 21 CMS varsity teams. Another added feature to the website are larger photos for the main stories.
Social Media Page/Tab: Each of CMS Athletics’ social media pages – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube – have been brought into one central location with the CMS Social Media home page. Fans here can view the latest social media posts, scroll through Instagram photos and watch the latest videos on YouTube. The Facebook and Twitter feed for the department can be viewed on the home page by clicking on the “Social Media” tab above the main story. From the “Social Media” tab, fans can also access the CMS Social Media Home Page by clicking on the gold “Social Media Home Page” button.
