  • 5 theme colors
  • 2 primary menu styles
  • 2 comment styles

Using the featured content block with slideshow

Go to: Content management > Create content > Story

Create your content in the same manner as described in the "Create Content Tutorial" plus the following options below:

Teaser Title

The title that will show in the featured block.

Teaser Description

The description text that will show in the featured block.

Image

Upload an image that is at least 498 x 290 pixels as this is the image size shown in the featured slideshow on the home page. The ideal image size depends on what width you define for your content area. For example if you have a 2 column layout with a content area of 620 pixels and a right sidebar of 300 pixels then it would be best to upload a 620 pixels wide x 360 pixels tall image. The system will scale this image down to display in the featured slideshow and on the full page the image will remain at it's original 620 width size and fit nicely across the top of your content area.

Alternate text - this text will be used by screen readers, search engines, or when the image cannot be loaded.

Show in featured block

2 questions:

1. Is there a limit to the number of pictures/stories to be displayed in the slideshow? In the demo there is 3, but is it possible to have more?Is there a limit?

2. For the squares beneath the slide show pictures that now display 1, 2, and 3 - would it be possible to customize those as other images instead of having 1, 2, 3, for example using different icons?

1. Most themes will allow for 10+ items in the slideshow

2. There isn't a theme setting to allow you to easily change these images, but we provide paid services if you'd like us to make this customization for you
