The template includes a built-in slideshow where you can display images in the slideshow you have uploaded to the web site.
To setup the slideshow you need to complete the following three steps
Create images which will appear in the slideshow
Create a custom module position for each slide show image
Open the template control panel to change the slide show settings
Create Images For the Slideshow
The first step is to create new images which will appear in the slide show.
Create a new .JPG image
If you want to add four images to the slide show then you will need to create four new images
Save the images to your computer
Create A Custom Module Position For Each New Slideshow Image
The Second step is to create a new custom module position for each image which will appear in the slideshow.
From the Joomla administrator area select the Extensions Menu and Module Manager menu.
Select the New button
Select the Custom HTML option
In the module titleenter the name for the new slide. The title will NOT be displayed in the slideshow
Assign and publish the module to the builtin-slideshow module position
In the WYSIWYG editor enter the heading and text which will appear as a caption over the slideshow image
Create a read more button to link to an article in your Joomla site (see instructions below)
In the options tab choose the SELECT button to upload and select the slide image you have created for the slideshow
Save the changes to publish the image to the builtin-slideshow module position
How Do I Add More Images To The Slide Show
You can add as many images to the slideshow as like but for each image you add to the slideshow you must create a new custom module position by following the instructions noted above for each new slide you add to the slideshow.
The slideshow image ordering can be changed by changing the module order for the custom modules you have created and published to the builtin-slideshow module position.
