This question was origenaly here http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/two... but in case my updated comments got missed I started a new post I do hope that is okay.

I have been playing with the custom panel widget and find one thing that would really be good is the ability to save the content in a custom panel too. The ability to do this would really make the custom panel widget very useful .

I have created this on Wix http://tigerrag.wix.com/featuredartist#! For my website and was hoping I could recreate something similar using the custom panel widget. I know the controls would not be the same but still would be nice if I could use Yola to do it.

I have also created a very quick and incomplete slideshow http://slideful.com/v20140218_1613707... and with some more work could work quite well within a custom panel again would be nice if I could do this within Yola and have no need to go anywhere else.

Anyone have any suggestions on how I could generate something similar to the Wix one using the custom panel widget.

Many thanks,

R

Hi Richard

We do have plans to allow you to duplicate the content inside the custom panel widget, but I can't tell you when this feature will be available.

We are also working on a solution for Slideshows, but for the time being the best option is to use a third party service and paste the embed code into an HTML widget. I agree that it would be great to be able to do this within Yola and we look forward to releasing this option.

For a similar effect to the Wix site, you could add a text box with a scroll bar inside a custom panel widget. This tutorial might be helpful: http://www.quackit.com/html/codes/htm...
