Adding/removing slides

If you have a Redback Graphics installed CMS website with the responsive “slides” function built in.

Make sure you have a slide prepared – it must have identical dimensions to your existing slides. You can see your slide dimensions in Dashboard/Slides/Settings.

Login to your Dashboard, under “Dashboard”, click once on “Slides”, then choose Slides to view your existing slides.

To add a new slide, click the Add New button, then choose Set Featured Image link. Upload a new slide (making sure it is already the exact dimension of existing slides), click the Set Featured Image button in bottom right corner, then the Publish” button.

You can also add hyperlinks to the slides, so that anyone clicking on a slide is taken to another web address or page. Go to Dashboard/Slides/Slides then edit a slide and add the link in the “Slide link” field, then Update that slide.

The changes will be live immediately. Use CTRL+F5 in your live website browser window to force a refresh of the web page you are viewing to see the updated slide/s.

Number of Slides
The number of slides in your slideshow is set in Dashboard/Slides/Settings, Slideshow Quantity. If you add a new slide, without deleting an existing slide, you need to modify the slideshow quantity accordingly.

Tip 1
It’s always handy to have another browser window open to view the “public” side of your website to see the changes without having to log in and out of your Dashboard to see the public website.

Tip 2
Always backup your website before doing any updates until you are very familiar with updating pages and images etc.
