Modules/Applications > Modules > Slideshows > [YOUR OFFICE OR DEPARTMENT GROUP] > [YOUR SLIDESHOW]

 

To edit a slide's content, click on the pencil/paper icon at the left of the table row.

Other Notes

  • Review different slideshow styles
  • All slideshow changes update automatically on the public website. You do not have to submit the page to workflow.
  • To delete a slide, click on the red X icon at the left of the table row.
  • IMPORTANT: You must delete the slide from the module instance prior to deleting the image from a folder. Deleting the image first will cause the slideshow to break, which will throw an error on the page.
