Videos and Slide Shows on Your Home Page

Users are able to maintain either a Slide Show or Media Video on their website's homepage.

All sites are delivered to our users with a Slide Show content item in place with several high impact images that allow visitors to catch a glimpse of how amazing they are. CMS users now have the option of changing that space to include a Media Video content item in its place.

Additionally, the Slide Show content item will now work on the SubPage and Row Plus Two Column templates, provided that there is no content above it.

Below please find links to 3 Tutorial Videos that review how to work with this space on your web page:
