AHC Slider

AHC Sliders can be useful for homepages or areas of your site where you need rotating photos, text, and links.

Slider content type

There are two kinds of sliders: a smaller slider like the one you see in the right sidebar, or larger sliders used on a home page. Examples include this Drupal site's homepage (with only one item in the slider) and this department website (with multiple items).

Adding new content to sliders

A number of AHC sites have rotating photos, text, and links featured on the homepage or elsewhere on the site. Here’s how to add new photos to your slider:

  • In your Content view, click “Add content.”
  • Choose “AHC Slider” as your type.
  • Leave the default "Front page" slideshow box checked (unless you have multiple slideshows to select from).
  • Fill in the title field, a few lines of text, and the appropriate text hyperlink.
  • Scroll down to the “Image” heading under the text field. Click “Browse.”
  • Upload your photo. Note that horizontal photos look best.
  • Click “Next.” Leave the first button checked, and click “Next” again.
  • Add some “Alt Text” that describes your photo. You may leave the other fields blank. Click “Save.”
  • Scroll down to select your choice of “Publishing options," then click “Save.”
