The Homepage Slideshow usually is the first thing people see when they visit your site. 


It consists of the Carousel Images that are rotating in the background at the top of your homepage. 


When selecting any of the images to go into your homepage background it is important that you make sure the images that you are going to use are the perfect size for your target audience. 


To do so please read this article: 


 Recommended Homepage Background Sizes 


Also, before selecting any of the images to go into your homepage background it is important that you first upload the images that you are going to use on your site. 


To do so please read this article: 


How To Upload An Image To Your Website 


The Homepage Slideshow settings are divided into 2 sections: 

  • The Slideshow Settings
  • The Individual Slide Settings




The Slideshow Settings:


These settings can be divided into 6 different sections:


Enable Slideshow?:


This setting will decide whether you use the rotating image carousel functionality that is this entire module or if you will use a single background image. 


If you set this setting to "Enable Slideshow" your website will display on your homepage the rotating image carousel with all the images you upload to this module. 


If you set this setting to "Disable Slideshow" your website will use the single homepage background image added here: 




Rotation Interval:


This setting will dictate how many seconds each slide you add will be displayed in the carousel. 


There is a max setting of 10 seconds before the next slide must start being displayed. 


Transition Effect: 


This setting will dictate what effect will be applied to all the slides when they are rotating to display the next image in the carousel.


The available effects are Slide Left, Slide Right, Slide Up, Slide Down, Swirl Left, Swirl Right, Fade, Zoom Out and Zoom In


Transition Duration: 


This setting will dictate how long the effect will last before actually displaying the next image in the slider. 


A good tip here is to make sure that your Transition Duration is always less time than your Rotation Interval


Background Color:


This is the color that will load in the area that the homepage slider will be while the page is loading the images in the slider. 


Usually this color only lasts a few seconds on the screen because the images of the slider load very fast. 


Show Slideshow Arrows:


This is a "Yes" or "No" setting. 


It will decide whether or not people visiting the site will be able to control which slide show image they see at a time. 


It will accomplish this by adding or not adding small arrows that indicate a new image on each side of the slider.



The Individual Slide Settings:


This area consists of three main settings:




Enable Slide/Disable Slide:


This setting will determine whether or not the image uploaded to this slot of the slider will display on the homepage. 


Upload Image:


This setting allows people to select and add an image to one of the homepage slider slots. 


This setting will change to "replace image" if an image was already placed and a change needs to be done. 


Delete Image:


This Setting will only remove the image from the slider slot and will not delete the image from the image manager.
