Here is a list of all the Images that show up on your rotator

This opens the editor for that specific image

Here you can edit:

Label: The title of the banner image

Display Order: Where in the line of images should it display? This one shows up seventh.

Link to Page: Do you want this image to be clickable and go to a page?

Image Itself: Upload a new image if you'd like.

Tile Background Color: Only some sites use this! So if yours doesn't have a background color overlay, ignore me!

Slide Headings and Text: Here is where you make any updates to the text on the image.

In certain instances, your home rotator may include some different options such as:

Large Heading: This will be the higher level text that appears on your slide. Similar to the 'Label' listed above

Detailed Paragraph: The detailed paragraph is the smaller text that will appear below the 'large heading' on your slider. This is where you'll want to provide your visitor with more (what do you know) detailed information.

Text Color: Obviously enough, we allow you to choose the color of the text that appears on the image. 

Button 1 Text: Typically, this is the CTA (Call to action) on the slide - where will it take them? Buttons can say things like (learn more) or (tell me more) or (find out more) or things of that nature

Button 1 Link: This is where that CTA will lead them. So whatever they are "learning more" about. Choose the page from the dropdown.

Button 2 Text: Similar to button 1 text, you'll want to add some type of CTA here, perhaps [Contact Us] or lead the visitor to a specific page on your website.

Button 2 Link: Choose a page from the dropdown where the button is supposed to take the visitor.

Click "SAVE"

You're done! :) As always, never hestitate to ask questions by e-mailing our help desk. Virteom is always here to help!
