Main Banner Slideshow or Video
Homepage Slideshows should always contain landscape oriented images ( Wider than Tall ). Using Portrait images are not a good idea and will result in huge images which need to be scrolled a lot in order for the customer to see them and content beneath.
If you are using a slideshow and would like to show the images at full width will need to be 1920px wide.
You can use any height but all images must be the same. We recommend going no taller than 1000px.
Please also be careful with file sizes when creating or using big images.
Keep your slideshow images to a maximum of 200kb in file size to prevent excessive load times for your store.
You may also choose to show video in place of the slideshow.
To do this change the Display option to show Video and paste in the embed code from Wistia, YouTube, Vimeo or other video hosting platforms.
Each slideshow image features it's own options including:
The link the image will go to when clicked
The text that will display should there be any issue loading your images. this is also used for SEO as search engines can not see your images
This text will show floating over the slide image
Additional text content that appears floating over the image
Buttons attract clicks - add a strong Call to action: Shop Now, Buy Now, Download etc...
Caption Text Alignment
Aligns the title, caption and button over the image to left, center or right
Caption Vertical Position
Dictates the vertical alignment of the title, text and button ( from the top of the title ). Add a percentage in here.
50% will start 50% from the top of the image but as this is where the title begins it will not appear centered vertically.
Global Slideshow Caption Styles
This section allows you to choose Font styles, sizes and colors for all content that would appear over your slideshow such as: Titles, captions and buttons.
