    Dentistreet - Image Carousel Default
    • Using the Carousel

    • The carousel is displayed on every website's Home page. It can contain one fixed image that does not loop, or a set of 4 images that loops continuously.
    • Single Fixed Image

    • By default, the carousel uses a single fixed image with no looping and the theme's default image is used. You can upload your own image by clicking the "Upload Image" button.
    • Clicking the Upload Image button will bring up the File Chooser. The image dimensions of the file you choose must be at least 2800 x 1226. Please use either jpg, jpeg, png or gif. After selecting the file, click "Open".

    • The following fields can be set for an image. All of these are optional.
      • Image Text - The text displayed on the image.
      • Image Subtext - The text displayed under the Image Text
      • Destination Page - The page that is navigated to when image is clicked
      • Image Text Alignment - The position of the text on the Image. Values are Left, Center or Right
    • Multiple Images with Looping

    • Click the "Enable Carousel" checkbox to configure the carousel's multiple images.
    • The Carousel uses 4 images that loop continuously on your website. Upload different images for Carousel Image 1, Carousel Image 2, Carousel Image 3 and Carousel Image 4. If you do not upload an image for any one of these, the theme's default image is used. Please note that there is only one theme default image so if you do not upload an image for Carousel Image 1, 2, 3 and 4, you will see the same image looping throughout.
    • Uploading images for the Carousel is the same procedure as for the Fixed Image
