Interactive carousel of teasers to a series of pages from your site.
Add the component to the page. You will initially see only the 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.
For best performance, please use this component with Shared Content pages created using the Highlight Template.
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.
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.
Tip: 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.)
Please note, special characters (e.g. "&", "|", "-") are not permitted in a search query and are automatically removed.
You can also use the search option to list tagged pages. And the above logical operators allow fairly advanced logic for tagged pages that is not possible using other tools.
This feature works comparably in both the Classic and Flex UI versions of the UBCMS. In the future, screenshots and language will be updated to reflect Flex UI.
