Slideshow Element

An Image Slideshow will allow you to create a slideshow from all of the images in a folder with configurable settings.


Where to Find

This element can be found in the "Add Content to Page" section of the Toolbar.


Adding to Website

Add a slideshow element to your website to display a collection of images.

After selecting this element, you will be able to choose exactly where you want to add it! You will see all available content locations it can be added to - on the current page only (content locations are indicated by the orange, blue or purple ribbons). 


Selecting Images for Your Slideshow

The Slideshow Element works by displaying a folder of images on your page. You can access your image settings from the "Images" option in the Element Toolbar. You can configure your slideshow by choosing the folder to display images from via the drop-down. 

If you would like to add more images to your folder, you can click the "Upload Images" button to directly upload images or "Manage Images" to access the Photos and Media manager for access to your entire file library for your Site Blocks site.

Note: For help creating folders and organizing images, please see File Folders.
