Using This Component

This component initially has one List tab. An additional tab appears after the Build list using option is chosen.

Add a title and text to describe your Full Width Carousel, plus a series of links to pages on your site. The linked pages should be in Shared Content, and built using the Highlight Template. Each slide will then showcase that page’s title (which links to the page’s URL), description or introductory text and main image.  

This component works best for 6+ items. If you run fewer, it will have open space at the end and not look good.

YouTube videos are playable, provided you use the Shared Content pages built using the Highlight Template.

PNG images will blend with the background color. This is a natural feature of these transparent images.

Works Best with Highlight Template

For best performance, please use this component with Shared Content pages created using the Highlight Template.

Carousel Module Tab

You have options of providing title only, description only, or title with description.

Title: Type a descriptive title that will be shown on the published version.

Text: Type a description that will be shown on the published module. A Rich Text Editor allows some formatting.

Background color: Choose between gray (default) and white.
