Use the Speakers block to display a speaker section. This block is dynamically populated with speaker data from the Speakers screen via the Scheduling tab. 

Preferences

Speaker Type

Choose which speakers will be displayed - whether that is all published speakers, all featured speakers, or all non-featured speakers.

Choosing to set a Speaker as featured will generally present their profile in a more prominent way, although this depends on the website theme. To feature a speaker, ensure that the "Featured" box is checked on their profile.

Tip: If you want to add headings (e.g. Keynote Speakers, Featured Speakers, etc.) between each section, add two Speakers blocks with one set to show only featured speakers and the other to show only non-featured speakers. Then add heading blocks between them.

Photo Shape

Select a photo shape to with which to display the speaker photos. You can choose between rounded (square with rounded corners), square, or circle. 

Tip: To get the best results ensure that your speaker photos are of consistent dimensions. 

When selecting the circular photo shape, using square photos will provide the best results.

Note: Speaker photos should be a minimum of 300 by 300 pixels and a maximum of 500 by 500 pixels. They do not need to be square as these are approximate guidelines but ensure they are all the same dimensions.

Content alignment

Choose how to align the speaker details: left-aligned, center-aligned, or right-aligned.
