Site Skin

The Site Skin position consists of two background images that frame the KVR Audio home page and news pages. The images are clickable (they will both use the same target URL but we track which side was clicked).

  • Two static image files in JPG, PNG or GIF format (NOT animated).
  • Maximum File Size: 200KB.
  • Image Size:
    • At least 600px wide.
      At least 1200px tall.
  • To ensure your primary message does not get cut off on lower resolutions, it should appear in the 100px of space on the right side of the left image and the left side of the right image.

Anyone who visits KVR Audio using a screen width wider than 1366 pixels will see the Site Skin images on either side of the home page content.

Featured News Item/ Deal

The Featured News Item is simply a tagged news item from the regular KVR news feed.  The original news item and Featured News Item do not have to appear at exactly the same time – KVR endeavors to post news as quickly as is humanly possible and would prefer not to hold a news item back just because a sponsored headline is not due to begin for a few days. So, a news item could be posted several days before the sponsored headline is scheduled to begin which means that this is also a good way to “bump” your headline back to the top.

  • Formats: News headline to coincide with a legitimate news posting.  The first image found in the text field will be automatically selected for display on the homepage.  The optimum aspect ratio for the image is 16:9.

NOTE: KVR retains editorial control over the contents of the news item and it must only be for news items that KVR would normally post.

Featured Deal

  • Formats: Deal headline to coincide with a legitimate deal posting.  The first image found in the text field will be automatically selected for display in the Featured Deal slot on the homepage.  The optimum aspect ratio for the image is 16:9.

Featured Product

  • Formats: Product listing in the KVR Product Database.
  • Remember, you can manage your product listings at KVR using a Developer Account
