7. Home Page Slideshow

You can save several slideshows at a time in the Slideshow Manager. Each slideshow can contain up to 5 slides and you can select which slideshow will be visible on the home page.

To access the Slideshow Manager:

  1. Log into your LibPress site and access the Dashboard administration screen.
  2. Hover over the Site Manager menu item at left and click on Slideshow Manager.

Images used in the slideshow should be 960px wide by 288px high. If you don’t have a graphic of this size, but are in a hurry to announce something via the slideshow, consider using a Text Slide until your graphic is ready.

If you create your own slide, you need to upload it to your Media gallery first and tag it as “slide”. It will then appear in your Slideshow Manager. For creating your own graphics, follow the Graphics Guidelines from Chapter 3. For a general guide to slide creation, see the diagram below.

Try to leave any text or image detail out of an approximate 50px margin on the left, right and bottom of the image. This is where the navigation arrows and image captions are displayed, if you have that option turned on.
