Venue promotion slider
Promote features from a venue explorer page via a slider
The slider is displayed in a similar way to a standard feature slider. It displays features that have been tagged with a particular meta tag.
See the venue explorer slider on Hillier Gardens’ home page. This slider has been set up to show any features tagged with the ‘looking good now’ meta tag.
- WCMS use
Create a new venue promotion slider
Go to common content > images > promotionslider.
Duplicate an existing slider and change the details, or create a new one by right clicking on the promotions slider folder and select insert > insert from template > Content Templates > Promoted content > VenuePromotionSlider
Fill in the required details:
Data source – this is the venue explorer page that contains the features you want to put into the slider
Slider title – the heading you want to appear above the slider
Venue explorer link text – this appears underneath the slider and to the right and is a link to the venue explorer page. Clicking this link will show all features, not just the promoted ones that are in the slider.
Promoted tag – choose the meta tag that will determine which venue explorer features are put into the slider. Note, this needs to be a tag such as ‘looking good now’, not a metadata group such as ‘worth looking at’
Display with overlay images - if unticked, will display as tiles tickbox – does exactly what it says!
Adding slider to a web page
The slider will need to be added to a rendering slot via Experience Editor. The slider rendering sits in Building Blocks > Images
