Cascade has several ways of displaying pictures (and in some cases video and text) as a slideshow, depending on the widget or page that you are using.

The Featured Slideshow will automatically advance the images on your homepage slideshow. The slideshow appears "behind" the department name at the top of the department homepage.

  2. Click [Search] to upload the image.
  3. Add alternate text.

SPIF Bank Widget

A SPIF Bank widget allows you to display images, text, or video in a click-thru slideshow format. View the detailed instructions for creating a SPIF Item and SPIF Bank.
