Slideshow Slide with no Text
By: BGS, Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

Some of our Drupal 7 websites have an updated Slideshow. What makes this Slideshow different is the ablilty to place the marquee text at four different places on the slideshow or not show a marquee at all. The marquee text can be placed on the bottom, top, right or left part of the slideshow slide. The text field is limited to about 255 characters. In addition to the marquee text, the title and a slide link URL button can appear on the slide. The slide link URL text is limited to 128 characters. The minimum dimensions for the slide are 1008 X 350 pixels. You can use a larger size image and use the image mask to select the portion of the image you want to appear in the slideshow.

Example of the marquee on the bottom of the slide.






This type of slideshow slide is currently only on a few sites.

For those of you who are under the Drupal 7 Basic or Department template, there are three options you can have added to your website.

Blog - A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog) is a discussion or informational format published to your Drupal website and consisting of discrete entries ("posts") displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). It is possible to subscribe to a blog so that you will receive an email when each new article is posted. This post is on the Training site blog.

Webform - A webform allows a user to enter data that is saved on the Drupal server so you can view it or download it to Excel for processing. You can use the webform to create surveys, registrations, file uploads and other information gathering formats.

Newsletter - A newsletter is a regularly distributed publication that is generally about one main topic of interest to its subscribers. It is possible to subscribe to a newsletter so that you will receive an email when each new issue is posted. This is an example of a Newsletter.
