Step 2: Enable carousel on your page

Next, log into the admin interface and edit the page you want to add a carousel to.

Then click the "Settings" tab, and tick the "show carousel" checkbox.

Step 4: Setup Carousel

Once this is done you will be able to set the following fields:

  • Width and Height settings (this will determine the size of the rendered images)
  • Show Controls (this will add next/prev buttons) NOTE if you want this to work correctly, you will need to disable hash rewrites in SilverStripe
  • Show Indicators (show the blips at the bottom of aa page).
  • Interval (how quickly will each slide be displayed).

Step 5: Add some slides

Once you have finished configuring, you can go back to the "content" tab and a "carousel" tab should have appeared in the right hand side of the editing pane.

You can now add slides, attach images and edit their titles.

Using a different carousel

By default this module uses Bootstrap 4 carousel from a CDN. If you want to use your own carousel, you will need to copy the CarouselSlides template into your theme and amend the HTML and Requirements calls
