Is it possible to have the main photo on the homepage rotate or fade into other photos automatically? In other words, is it possible to create an automatic slide-show?

Hello irvinefamily,
It certainly is possible and it's fun, too. I recommend you use the "Slide" widget. Drag the widget over and then click on "" to actually go to the Slide website. In the top left corner, there is a "create" button. There are so many cool ways to showcase your pictures! Play with them all! Regards, Julie

Hello irvinefamily,

I have actually just sent you an email suggesting the same as Julie did! :)

Please let us know if you have any trouble with getting the slideshow to work.

Hm, where is the slide widget at?

Also, is there a way to get rid of the banner image entirely and JUST use the slideshow? Kind of would look odd having a slideshow plus a banner image at the top

Hello Kristi,

It's quite difficult getting into the banner area and manipulating the content there. One way around this is to eliminate the banner contents completely. This will then extend your working canvas into the area that was the banner.

From there you can place the slide-show at the original position in absolute terms. It depends on the original style as to whether or not the background will appear exactly as it did before or not.

I am happy to have a look for you and let you know the likely outcome. If you can tell me your site or the Style you are using or intend to use, that will allow me to have a good look at what can happen.

Hello Kristie

We do not offer a Slideshow Widget at the moment. You can use these options in the meantime:

For more information on Yola planning a slide show widget in future, please see this thread: Yola Slideshows.
