How do I create a slideshow page?

Use the slideshow page template to show a set of images in the body of a page (view an example).

Create a new slideshow page

  1. Browse to the parent page under which you want to create the slideshow page.
  2. Go to Edit > Create a new page. (You need edit or admin permissions on the parent page.)
  3. Select Change page template to expand the options, then select the Slideshow page template.
  4. Specify whether the image caption should be displayed next to the image. (The text for the image caption is taken from the image's short title property.)
  5. Specify whether or not you want to include PNG images.
  6. Specify the Slideshow width in pixels.
  7. Enter the URL, Page heading, Title bar caption and Link caption. For a description of these properties, see: how do I create a new blank page?
  8. Enter the keywords and page contact.
  9. When you have finished editing the page properties, select the Create new page button. A confirmation message appears with a link to view the new page. Follow the link to view the published page.
  10. Go to Edit > More > Files tab and upload your images. Each image automatically displays in the slideshow. For more information, see the FAQ on how to upload a file.

Accessibility

When using images, it's important to consider people who use assistive technology such as screen readers. Always provide a text-based alternative to describe the image – refer to our guidance on providing text-based alternatives to visual media.
