Blocks: How to Add or Edit a Slideshow Block
Slideshows are a wonderful way to showcase several images on a page, without cluttering the page with an overkill of image blocks! Use slideshows to display a scrolling feed of your favorite pictures from your wedding, photos of your pet, or professional product imagery that you plan to feature on your site! It’s easy, and we’ll show you how.
Hot Tip! Before you begin, make sure you have the images you wish to use in your slideshow uploaded into your media library. Check out our "How To" guide for uploading to your media library by clicking here.
To add a slideshow block to your website, first open up your site editor. Once there, select the Blocks menu option from the grey site editor menu tray at the top of the page.
Select the “slideshow” option from the blocks menu, and drag and drop the slideshow block onto your page anywhere you see a light gray dashed-line box on page. When you have arrived at a valid location for your slideshow block, you should see a green line across the top of the blank space indicating you have the green light to drop your block there.
Click on the pencil icon on the upper left side of the green bar on your newly added slideshow block.
This will bring you to your current media library. Several default images may already appear in the dark gray rectangle. These are the images currently defaulted to show in your slideshow. To remove them, simply drag them to the red trash can icon on the right.
Once you've cleared the default images, double-click on your own images you wish to add to the slideshow. The images available for you to select appear below the dark gray rectangle, and are from your media library. You can drag images within the dark grey rectangle to modify the order in which they appear in the slideshow. Once you are happy with the images and their order, click the green Save button at the bottom right, and watch your beautiful new slideshow in action!
Need to move your slideshow block elsewhere on the page? Simply hover over the slideshow, then click and hold the four way directional arrow icon that appears at the top center. Drag the block anywhere else you wish on the page.
Need to delete an slideshow block? Hover over the slideshow block you wish to delete from your page, and click on the trash can icon that appears at the upper right.
