Sidebar Widget displaying slideshow of a box set?

Recommended Posts

chemmiz

Is that possible in PlatformPro? I am trying to take my "in the news" section and just make it a slideshow of boxes in the sidebar. Any tips?

You could apply a different slideshow using a plugin that can be added to a sidebar via a widget. Make sure the plugin is "widgetized"... as many slideshows require coding to add them to the body of your page, which you don't want. I'm not sure what the "in the news" looks like but there are plenty of plugins to handle news, rss feeds and all sorts of post link placements in sidebars.

Actually, there are dozens of ways of achieving the result of having all that content in a sidebar... ranging from slideshows/galleries to accordions. You should really shop around to see your various options.
