How To

  • Create a Slider
  • Create a Mini Slider
  • Edit Sliders
  • Delete Sliders


Create a Slider

  1. Click ADD NEW SLIDER

  2. Add a title to describe your Slider

  1. Begin adding Slides

    1. Use the ‘Body’ field to provide a caption, slogan, catchphrase, or short description

    2. Under ‘Link’, add the url to which users should be directed, should they click on the slide

  2. Click BROWSE to add the background image for the slide

    • The image must be under 2MB, 1566 *450 pixels, and one of the following image file formats: png, gif, jpg, or jpeg

  1. Optional Expand the Visibility Options accordion to set the Publication and/or Expiration date for a specific slide

    • When a slide reaches its expiry date only that slide will be removed from your Stacks site. The remainder of the slides within the slider will remain live until the slider itself expires or it's manually removed or deleted

    • If the 'Show End Date' checkbox is unchecked, the slide will inherit the expiry date associated with the Slider as a whole

    • You can choose to have the slide's publication and expiry date repeat; this can be very helpful in publishing temporal content such as monthly or yearly events

    • Example
      Create a single 'Events' slider, adding slides for all of the events you'd like to promote throughout the year. Set the publication and expiration dates for each slide to automatically publish the slides one month prior to each event, and to expire two days afterwards. The slider would now automatically publish and expire the appropriate slides throughout the year without any additional maintenance required.


  1. Add as many additional slides as you’d like by clicking on ADD ANOTHER ITEM and repeating Step #3

  1. Click SAVE to create your Slider

  2. Enter a title for the Mini Slider

    2. Provide a link the user should be directed to upon clicking on the slide

    3. Click BROWSE to add the background image for the slide

      • The image must be under 2MB, 80*80 pixels, and one of the following image file formats: png, gif, jpg, or jpeg
