Folwell Slideshow

What is it?

A Folwell Slideshow is a widget that allows you to create a photo slideshow with text. This is one new slideshow option that has replaced the old Carousel widget (in addition to the Folwell Overlay Slideshow widget), now updated to match the University's Folwell style. The Folwell Slideshow widget displays the photo on the left with text in a gold box on the right (see example below).

How do I use it?

While editing an advanced or unit landing page, navigate to the widget drop-down menu and select "Folwell Slideshow." You can fill out the title field if you'd like a title to go across the top of the widget (as shown in the above screenshot).

Editing this widget is similar to editing the old Carousel widget. Select the "Add Slide" button to add a slide (pictured below).
