How To Edit Twitch Panel Templates On Your Channel

Let’s quickly go through the process of how to get the panels displayed on your channel.

  2. Alter the panel information as you see fit by editing its title, image, embedded image link, and description

  4. Should you wish to add a new panel, click the Plus (+) sign positioned on the right side of the screen

Twitch Panel Dimensions   

Whether you would like to add a new panel or replace an existing one on your channel, you have to conform to some of Twitch’s basic guidelines. 

The maximum allowed dimensions are 320px in width and 300px in height. Twitch will resize your panel when you try to upload it, if the graphic is over these limits.

However, we recommend sticking to the 320px by 100px size for your panel needs, if you decide to customize the templates. It is worth noting that your file size must not exceed 2.9 MB for Twitch to accept it. 

Twitch Panels To Have On Your Channel

As a streamer, there is a minimum set of some must panels you should have on your channel, in order to provide a solid overview of the necessary information to the viewers.

Here they are: 

  • About Me Twitch panel 
    • If you add only one panel to your channel “About me” should be it, viewers should know you so they can relate to you. Keep it short and to the point – 
      • where are you from
      • age
      • streamer since
    • Some streamers state the benefits from subscribing in this panel so they can show subscriber leaderboard in another panel
  • Rules Twitch panel 
    • Here you can state what your community can and can’t do while watching your stream, focus mostly on guidelines for the chat. 
  • Subscribe Twitch panel 
  • Schedule Twitch panel 
    • With your twitch schedule panel you’ll be able to present viewers exactly when they can expect to see you live, this will help viewers know when to expect you to go live when your channel is offline. 
  • Facebook or Twitter Twitch panel  
    • Pretty straight forward, just place links to your pages 
  • Donation Twitch panel  
    • Having a twitch donation panel will help you boost revenues from donation by stating clearly how your community should donate to you and what they’ll get in return. 
    • Another option is to place a paypal donation panel

In addition, there are some other optional panels that are nice to have in the mix:

  • PC specs Twitch panel 
    • Some nerdy stuff to help your community learn from your experience will also decrease the amount of people asking what keyboard you use.
  • FAQ Twitch panel 
    • Here you can give all the other info that didn’t make the cut to be shown in the About me panel. Up to 10 FAQs are enough. 
  • Top Donations Twitch panel 
  • Sponsors Twitch panel 
    • Usually sponsors will want to have their own designed panel showing on your channel so not a lot of work for you to do other than put it. 
  • Discord Twitch panel 
    • Similiar to Facebook and Twitter panel but some streamers keep their Discord server private only for subscribers.
