A slideshow page makes a visual impact using an animated slideshow with large-scale titles, descriptions and optional linking. It uses a standard left menu, but no right column, and offers an outro WYSIWYG for additional content. The slideshow also offers manual navigation for users by click or swipe and can contain up to six slides. Photos in the slideshow can rotate in the set order or randomly with each page load.
As this asset requires an extra level of user support — training, consultation on appropriate usage, access to high-quality photography — it is only made available to users upon your request. It is packaged in your asset factory as a Folder with Slideshow Page and is designed to fit into the site structure in the same way as a Folder with Content Page.
