Featured content sliders are moving image displays that NationBuilder allows you to set up on most pages of your website, although most people use it on the homepage. The images on your featured content slider will be links to different pages on your website.
To configure a featured content slider, click Pages and then Edit next to the page you wish to install it on. Then click Settings > Featured Content Slider.
You add one image at a time. You need to have more than one image for the slider to activate and for the label/call to action to appear. Choose a label for your image and enter the slug of the page on your website which you want your image to link to (the label text will link to the slide, not the page). The action text you specify will be overlayed on top of the image and clickable. Now select an image to upload from your computer by clicking on Choose File.
Images look best when they span the width of your left column, so an image size of 660px by 250px usually works well. In some themes, such as Revolution and Victory, the image slider spans the entire page width, in which case you'd want an image size of about 960px by 250px. Make sure all your images are exactly the same size so they cleanly slide into each other. If you don't have an application to resize images, you can use free online tools such as picresize.com. The recommended size for featured content sliders in Busy Biz, Civitas, and Victory theme can be found in our public theme guidelines.
You can then select to publish your slider and click on Save featured content slider to save. You can always go back and edit an existing slider. Now you are ready to add more sliders to your display; do this by taking the same steps you did to create the first one. You can re-order the slides simply by dragging and dropping them into place. We recommend 3-5 sliders to avoid crowding.
You can easily move a slider from one page to any other page. Just click “Edit” next to the slider you wish to move, and enter the page slug you wish to move it to under “Move to another page.”
