The SuiteCommerce Image Text Overlay extension lets you add an image and text that displays over the image using Site Management Tools. Images can be enhanced with dark and light overlays. You can choose the text color based on your theme settings, and select the position of your content. You can add a call-to-action button and select the button style. For example, with Image Text Overlay, you can create attractive images for home and landing pages that prominently feature your brands.

Important

SuiteCommerce extensions are only available if they are provisioned and set up in your account. For more information, see NetSuite Extensions.


You can add an image with text overlay information to multiple areas on your website using Site Management Tools. For more information on Site Management Tools, see SMT Overview.

To add an image with text overlay:

  1. Go to the page where you want to add an image with text overlay.

    Note

    If you do not see this content type, check that the extension has been installed and has been activated. Click the Settings button on the Site Management toolbar to access the Content Manager. Drag the content type from the Inactive Content Types list to the Active Content Type list.


    You can drag the Image Text Overlay content type to multiple areas on the page:

    • If you drag it to an area marked as all pages, then the content displays on any page that contains that area.

    • If you drag it to an area marked as page type, then the content displays on any page of that type.

    • If you drag it to an area marked as this page, then the content displays only on the page to which you add it.

  4. In the settings side panel, use the Name field to enter a description of your new content.

    See Content Tags and Filter Tools.

  5. Set the content visibility options.

    See Visibility Dates.

  6. Select the image you want to display using the Image Manager.

    Note

    Image Text Overlay allows a maximum image height of 750 px. If the image height is greater than 750 px, the image is resized to fit.

    You can choose the focus of your image. The options are top, center, or bottom.

    This text is used to improve web accessibility for visually impaired users and for SEO purposes.

  10. Enter the text you want to display over the image in the Text field.

    You can use basic HTML formatting tags such as <strong> for bold text, <em> for italic, and <li> for bullet lists, for example. When entering your text, you should enclose any body text with <p> tags and use <h> tags to create headers.

  11. In Text Alignment, select the positioning of the text content and button overlay.

    You can choose left, right, or center aligned.

  12. In the Text Color field, choose the color you want for the text fields.

    By default, the colors are taken from your theme. If you select Dark, the text uses the dark text color as defined in your theme. If you select Light, the text uses the light text color as defined in your theme.

  13. Enter the text you want to display on the button in the Button Text field.

    If you leave this field blank, the button does not display.
