The Slideshow (advanced) widget is the replacement widget for the deprecated Slideshow widget. This page shows the slideshow using each of the five available row styles: Image Text 75/25, Landscape Text Centre Bottom, Landscape Text Bottom Left, Breaker With Image and Breaker Without Image. There are also examples of the previous/next arrows on and off, slide indicators on and off and width settings (Standard and Full Width). Other configuration options for this widget are:

  1. Loop (yes/no)
  2. Autoplay (on/off)
  3. Slide duration (any milisecond value)
  4. Exclude current item

N.B. the Advanced Slideshow widget is so called as it superseded the deprecated Slideshow widget.

The Image-Text 75/25, Landscape Text Bottom Centre, and Breaker without Image styles use opaque text areas; the Landscape Text Bottom Left and Breaker with Image styles both use transparent text areas.


Re: your question from today about image dimensions for the Text Bottom Centre style: when an image is uploaded to the site and used in this item style, it will be cropped to 1728px x 520px before being used in the slideshow. If the initial image is smaller than these dimensions, it will be enlarged to these dimensions to make it work. If you want to maintain image quality in this item style, make sure the initial image is 1728px x 520px.
