Slideshows are a great way to feature content. Even ordinary things become compelling when they move!
Slides are actually a unique content type, like pages. They contain three fields.
The Title will only display on the back-end, typically in the list of Blocks under Structure.
The featured image field is for the slide image.
The Body text will appear in the black bar on the slideshow. Use the WYSIWYG editor to add links and bold text.
All slides must be 1020px wide. Images that are smaller will stretch to fill the space.
All slides must be the same height. The recommended height is 316px. If the slides are different heights, the content will be pushed down or pulled up depending on which slide is currently visible.
