Embed GIFs

GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format) are super cool ways to display content. You can embed Gifs in P4 (here’s our giphy channeljust by pasting a GIF URL in the body, just resize it to a maximum of 1140px, like the one below:

You can also upload a GIF in P4 (and still embed it just by pasting the GIF URL), but since the image size is 10MB, it cannot be a huge one.

  • TIP >> Do you need to upload your gif but it’s bigger than 10MB? Try to resize it using online tools like https://ezgif.com/crop and re-upload it..  

Here’s an example of a GIF we created and uploaded in P4 (image size 9.6MB):


Embed Timeline via Knight Lab

Timelines are an innovative and practical way to visualise a campaign’s history. And they are also very easy to embed with P4.

Both New Zealand and GPI have embedded timelines on their websites.  One of the easiest to play around with is the knight lab timeline, but there are also other platforms to work with.

The steps are detailed on the website:

  1. you will have to fill in a spreadsheet – timeline is available on the Knight Lab Timeline page
  2. publish to the Web the spreadsheet
  3. copy/paste spreadsheet URL into the box below to generate your timeline. (Make sure you’ve published the spreadsheet.)
  4. Use the URL under Embed and add it on the P4 page you want the timeline on. Embed the URL in the TEXT version.

Here you can find a list with the content supported by Knight Lab.

To hyperlink an URL in the timeline, the information has to be added in the spreadsheet cell. The format should be like this:

<a href=”URL”>call to action/ paragraph/ title 

Eg: <a href=”https://storage.googleapis.com/p4-production-content/international/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/35cfc49d-hidden-in-plain-sight.pdf”>Full report here</a>

Embed Timeline via Custom CSS

Both out Indian and Hungarian colleagues decided to adopt a custom timeline using CSS. Instructions and CSS code are in this document.

  • KEY INFO >> this timeline is a local CSS Child theme customisation, therefore its maintenance remains under the NRO responsibility. This means that in case of conflict with Product Upgrades, this cannot be treated as a regular bug.

Embed maps

You can also embed maps into the posts and pages of Planet4 by adding an iframe.

At Greenpeace, there is an entire department – the Global Mapping Hub – established to support Greenpeace Global and NROs as a global mapping advisory service and build the capacity in mapping. After you have been in contact with them so that they build the map you need, there is an easy way to embed a map into a post/ page.

Just add the ‘Custom HTML‘ block and paste there the iframe for the map. Below is an eg:

Frontend

Here are some live maps on the Greenpeace International site:
