This slideshow full width landing is for use on landing pages only. It's possible to have two or more slideshows on a page.

Give it try

NB: Check you are using a landing page before you start.

1. Create a hidden section called Slideshow (Case sensitive), as a sub-section (child) of the landing page where the slideshow will live.

2. Create a second sub-section (child) of Slideshow, in this example slideshow 1 items, this will 'house' your slideshow items.

Graphic below shows the structure. Grey indicates as folder is hidden from the navigation:

Folder structure

3. Add a Slideshow item - full width landing content type for each slide in the sequence to your second sub-section, in this example, slideshow 1 items.

There's a bug in t4 and items cannot be ordered with the up and down arrows. To control the order in which the items appear, they should be named with numeric or alphabetic prefixes thus: a - item description, b - item description  etc., OR 1 - item description, 2 - item description etc.

NB: If another slideshow is required on this page, its slides would live in a section called, for example, slideshow 2 items.
