This feature allows you to add a slideshow - a presentation of a series of still images - to your webshop. The slideshow is usually the first thing your visitors will notice, thus it's a great opportunity for leaving an impression.
You can use the slideshow on your homepage, category pages and newly added pages. The slideshow is mobile friendly, search engine friendly and multilingual. You can create multiple slideshows, a slideshow can be added to multiple pages and a page can contain multiple slideshows.
Despite all its features, the slideshow is very easy to use. The most important thing to keep in mind is to provide large photos of high quality.
Navigate to Marketing > Slideshow. When there are no slideshows yet, you will see the new slideshow form. If there are already slideshows, you can add an additional slideshow by choosing Add in the slideshow selection menu.
Next, choose the page and the page location where you want to add the slideshow.
Slideshows can be different for each language, so repeat if your webshop is multilingual. You can change the language in the language selection menu.
You can navigate trough your slideshows using slideshow selection menu.
Click the New slide button to add a new slide to your slideshow.
Click the Edit icon next to the slide to edit the chosen slide.
After you added slides, you can move them around by dragging and dropping them with your mouse, or by clicking the up and down arrows.
You can find the form for editing your slideshow below the slide list. Each slideshow can have different settings in each language. We recommend to keep the settings consistent among your slideshows: this way you don't confuse your visitors.
The slideshow will automatically insert the [WEBSHOP_SLIDESHOW1] keyword on your pages and categories. To gain finer control of the placement of your slideshow, you can move this keyword around. The number in the keyword refers to the number of the slideshow.
Text on your slides will automatically be indexed by search engines. Avoid adding images with text in them: these texts will not be indexed by search engines.
A wide slideshow looks better than a square slideshow. In order to obtain this effect, the photos are sometimes cut at the top and at the bottom. On mobile devices, the slideshow will adapt to the size of the screen. Keep this in mind when placing text directly on your slide images.
Click the Delete icon next to the slide to delete the chosen slide.
A deleted slide cannot be recovered.
To delete a slideshow, simply delete all the slides in your slideshow.
