Step 3: Customize Your World

This is Part 3 of our tutorial, Build Your First World on Agora. To start from the beginning, click here!

Preparation

To complete this step, please download this ZIP file. It contains assets that we will be using to customize our world in this tutorial. Once you download the ZIP file, double click it to release the folder "Sunny Side Collections Assets".

Customize Your World

Now comes the fun part - building your world. Make sure you are on the third part of the building process, titled 3) Customize.

On the left side of the page, you will see a map of your selected world, along with numbered boxes. Each of those boxes represent a media slot in the world, and coincide with a row in the scrolling bar on the right side of the page.

In the Agora Gallery template, there are 32 media slots lined throughout the inside of the gallery building (1), with two additional clusters at the entrances to the gallery (2 and 3).

We are going to place company branding and key information at the central entrance to the gallery, with art pieces lining the inside.

Adding Media to the Entrance

Slot 35: This slot is in the center of the entrance, the perfect place for Sunny Side's logo.

To edit it, follow these steps:

  1. Scroll down to Title 35 on the right, and click into it.
  2. Click the Add Image button and upload the image titled Slot35 from the Sunny Side Collections Assets folder you downloaded earlier.
  3. Change the title of the slot to "Sunny Side Collections".

Sunny Side Collections

 

 

Slots 40 and 41: These slots are to the left and right of the entrance, a high-attention spot where many visitors pass by. We will place a graphic in each of these slots encouraging visitors to click to follow Sunny Side on social media, along with a link to our Link Tree.

  • Click into Title 40, then Title 41.
  • Upload the image Slot40_41 to each of these slots, along with the following Title, Description and Link:

Note: Make sure to add it to both Slot 40 and Slot 41. When it asks if you would like to overwrite the current file, either option (Yes or No) works!

Adding Media to the Gallery

Slot 0: Sunny Side's clientele primarily consists of people who are art novices. With this in mind, for the first slot in the gallery we will insert a video titled How To Appreciate Art.

To add a video in Agora you must link to a video service such as YouTube or Vimeo. Uploading MP4 video files directly to Agora is not currently supported.

Follow these steps:

  • Click into Title 0
  • Change the Media Type to "Video".
