Carousel Cells

Follow

A carousel cell allows you to add multiple images to one cell, and have that cell scroll through those images like a slideshow. In addition to this, you can apply headings, captions and links to these images as well. Carousel cells are good for highlighting different activities that may be happening at your church, or showing off images from a recent event.

Adding a Carousel Cell:

  1. On the page that you'd like to add the carousel cell to, click the edit tab to turn on edit mode.
  2. On a cell that you'd like to turn into a carousel cell, click the gear icon, and click "Edit cell type"
  3. In the window that appears, on the Cell Type drop list, choose "Carousel", and then click the "Change" button. Any content that was in this cell previously will be erased.
