A lof of people ask us about the "slider" on Creators at the top of our Main Page. They love it. We do, too!
A slider (sometimes also called a "carousel"or "hero" box) automatically rotates in and out promotional content. It's a very effective way to spotlight specific things on your network that you want returning members (and visitors) to notice and visit. You could also use a slider like this to run your own ads, particularly if you have lined up sponsors or advertisers directly and can create an ad for them. It looks like this:
I know that a number of Network Creators are going to flip over this new slider we've created. It's free for the taking, so check out this article on Adding a Slider to see if it's something you'd like to put on your network.
You will need to be able to upload the images you want to display, and you can do that with the File Manager (among other ways). You will also need to be able to look at some HTML, but these instructions are straightforward and should be doable for most Network Creators. If you're unsure about how to do it, you might want to try it out first on your test network and then paste the final code into a Text Box on your live network.
Very nice, just informed my VIP Members that Ning finally shared the code, and it should be good! ;-) I'll make a public announcement later. This really looks well written. Thanks Ning.
So the answer is 'Yes, this is only available for the new design'?
Or 'No, you can use it with the old design'?
Grateful for clarification.
The answer is as I noted to Gary: You can use it with the Classic Appearance editor or the Design Studio.
