The Image Slider Block is a way to display image content in a moving carousel, allowing for an eye-catching way to showcase Exhibitors and Sponsors, Sessions, or any other area of interest in your Event.
Image Slider Blocks can be placed on any Canvas - including the Lobby, or any Session or Vendor Canvas.
Image Slider Block Structure
An Image Slider Block has an optional heading, and an image slider section. The dimensions of the Image Slider Block are configurable - for example, small, tile-shaped blocks, or large banner-shaped blocks are supported.
All images in an Image Slider Block must be the same dimensions (i.e. same height and width in pixels). Additionally, we don't recommend using more than 6 images in a Slider.
Image Slider Functionality
Images in a Slider Block can have a URL associated with them. Internal URLs (i.e. links to elsewhere in the Community) will open in the same window, while External URLs will open in a new tab/window.
