Primary Content Widget – Carousel

This is an article explaining how to add and edit the carousel widget in your primary content section. The carousel is used to showcase multiple images in a scrolling format.  

Step 1: Select the page you’re going to update and click “Edit.”

Note: Make sure that the page you want to edit is highlighted in the site content menu.

Step 2: The editing pop-up will display basic information about your page in the first section. In the next section, you will see regions that represent different areas on your page that you can edit. Since we are focusing on primary content, select the corresponding region.

Step 3: Once you click on the primary content region, it will expand and give you the option to select a widget. Select “Carousel.” If you want to know how to add a new widget, refer to Adding a new widget

Step 4: When you select “Carousel,” you will see a place where you can add a headline and caption. These will display right below the scrolling images.

Step 5: Now it is time to add your image.

If the image is located within Cascade, select “Internal Cascade Image.”

If you want to use an image from an external website, select “External Image URL.”

Make sure that you choose an image with the proper dimensions. If you need to resize your images, visit http://dimensions.chapman.edu/

Note: We recommend adding at least 2 images to maximize the functionality of the carousel widget.
