1. Simple slideshow

A Simple Slideshow has images only, no text, no links. 

 

To place or remove images into your slideshow

First, re-size your images to a specified measurement. You will usually find this in your Keep Notes.

To get better Google ranking, include your preferred google search word in your image name. 

In your sites administration...

    1. Go to the page you want to add images to. The slideshow is usually in Top or Extra Content but will only show the code in the editing area and not the images.
    2. Click onto the ‘insert/edit image icon’ in the tool bar. Next to ‘source’ click on the camera icon on the right hand side.
    3. Open the ‘slideshow’ folder.
    4. Open the folder with the page name you want to add or delete images to.
    5. Upload all your images or delete them into this folder.
      Select ‘Upload’ (top left hand icon up arrow). Add files or  Drag & Drop files or click in the area displayed (modern browsers) and select the file(s). Start Upload   When the upload is complete, click the ‘Return to files list’ button.
    6. If you want to reorder the images on the slideshow page, change the names in the Responsive Filemanager. They will order numerically and alphabetically.
    7. Click out of the Responsive Filemanager and OK it.
    8. Unfortunately you cannot see the slideshow on the page editor. You will see a piece of code there.
       
    9. Save Page and view the page through the ‘eye icon’ on the top right.
    10. Go to Page List on the menu on the left hand side. Click the button on the top right that says Empty cache. Empty Cache.
    11. View your page live.

To change the speed and time of the slideshow

On the right hand side under Add-on Modules/Active modules, next to Slideshow click on edit icon. Change the speed and timing.

You can also change the order here to random, numerically or alphabetically and add or delete reference dots.

Image sizes

If you are unsure of the size of an image that is already uploaded you can check in the 'Responsive Filemanager' (where your images are kept).

Change the viewing layout to "list" and it will show you the dimensions on the right.
Or look in your 'Your Notes', and if they aren't in there put them there once you find out what they are. 

Slideshow on a Home page not working?

Reorder the Activated Add-on Modules.

Slide Show - Responsive should sit below 'Home Page' and above any other activated module.

 

2. Slide Pages

Slideshow with links and editable text. 
     

This type of slideshow has two parts:

  1. A Host Page (the receiving page the slideshow appears on).
  2. Slide Pages (with the content) that get assigned to the Host Page.

HOST PAGE

How your Host Page is set up.

Your Host Page (usually a Home Page and in Extra Content) has been set up with this code:   

This page must have a Category for it to show a slide.

The Slideshow module has been activated and set to: Add a Slideshow to this page.
Don't untick it unless you don't want the slideshow on there. 

The Host Page will receive Slide Pages (SS_number_NameOfPage) that have been assigned to it. 

Note: You can have numerous Host Pages receiving the same Slide Pages.

 

 

To change the speed, time and ordering of the Host Page

On the right hand side under Module/Active, click Slideshow Responsive. Change the speed and timing.

You can also change the order here to random, numerically or alphabetically and add or delete reference dots.

  

SLIDES PAGES

How your Slide Pages work

The Slideshow Responsive module has been activated and each page is set to "Add this page to a Slideshow" 

Creating Slide Pages

    1. Set up your Slide Pages so that they all start with SS_number_NameOfPage and are easy to find.
      Note: It is ok to change the Page and Display name of these pages.
    2. Add your images and text to the Main Content (this is important), add links if needed.
      All images must be the same size.
    3. Activate the Slideshow Responsive module and tick "Add this page to a Slideshow" 
    4. You will get a selection of Host Pages to tick and assign your Slide Page to. If no Host Pages appear, no Host Pages have been created or they need to have a category set.

  

 

Deleting Slide Pages to your slideshow.
