Contents in space portal page You can hide the content on the space portal (e.g., the "Announcement" or "Threads" section) as necessary.
This allows you to, for instance, hide the existing content when you customize the space portal using APIs.
For details on customizing space portals, refer to Customizing space portals.

Recommended size for a cover photo

You can upload an image file up to 5 MB to be used as the cover photo.
In the desktop view, the height of the uploaded image is fixed at 64 px and the width is enlarged or shrunk according to the display width of the Web browser.

Therefore, it is recommended that you prepare an image file with a height of 64 px and a width equal to or greater than the maximum width of the Web browser to be used.
The image file set as the cover photo is enlarged or shrunk to fill the entire image area of the space while maintaining the aspect ratio. If text or a logo in the image is cut off or extended off screen, place it in the middle of the image.
