Prominent screen-wide carousel provides key messaging.
Last reviewed: May 28, 2021
Add the component to the page. There is one main tab, Faces & Voices Items.
A second tab with corresponding settings appears after the Build list using option is chosen.
This component displays a carousel of shared content built using the Faces and Voices template, applying standard list builder teaser settings.
Title: Provide a descriptive title. The default is "Faces & Voices" -- delete that for no heading.
Here you will choose the type of list, as well as additional advanced settings.
Build list using: This drop-down menu asks how you want to build your list. You have the option to build it using:
Be careful not to list the parent page here by mistake.
> It can create a loop (Known Issue).
Host Page: (where applicable) Set the preferred page to display your list items. If blank, the current page will be used.
New window: Select so each clicked page is displayed in a new browser window.
When New Window is selected, an additional icon will follow the linked text, to alert visitors that they will be taken to a new browser window, or even leave the current website.
And if the hyperlink goes to a downloadable file, a document icon will instead be shown as well as the file size if the file is on the same server. (Read more about link labels.)
Order by: Here are some of the ways in which you can order your list. Not all appear in the dropdown. Others may be available on request -- contact the DCT Help Team for details.
Reverse order: Check the box to select whether you would like to inverse the order selected in the Order by field.
Start at: Select how many items you would like to skip at the beginning of the list (example: '5' will skip the first four items and begin the list at the fifth item). Left blank, the default value of '1' will result in the list displaying every item in your list. This setting can be useful if you wish to feature several items in one group, perhaps at the top of your news page, or on your homepage, and NOT have them repeated with the rest of your list displayed elsewhere on your site.
Limit: Choose a maximum number of entries (optional).
If you want all items to appear in the list, do not leave the Limit field blank. Instead, enter a value that you anticipate will meet your needs; for example, 200, 500, etc. (The News Center has used 9999 as a 'very large number' because their archives date to 1990.)
Exclude current page - Do not display any entries that link to the page on which the list is shown (optional).
Enable Scheduling: Select to enable shared content Scheduling.
Color scheme: Choose between several UB-branded options for the display.
Width: Choose from Full screen width (default) or Full width of column
This component is intended to display shared content pages built using the Faces and Voices Template.
For those shared content pages, we suggest you bold the person's name but leave their affiliation or credentials in normal text in the Identification field. And if you are directly quoting them, add quotation marks to the Quote/Description field (or select the Smart Quotes setting in that field).
The photo will be displayed as a circle with a 1:1 ratio. We recommend 600 x 600 pixels as a minimum size.
