The Slideshows dashboard is place where you can create, edit and manage all slideshows for integration into any post, without duplicating efforts within your team.
To get started , click on 'Slideshows' on the left admin panel OR type YourDomain/core/dashboard/slideshows:
Click 'Create New Slideshow' to start inserting images and copy for the slideshow title, slide title and slide text:
Note: As you upload your images they will go through the crop tool. Be sure to choose the right crop for each image so they can appear nicely in the slideshow. You can also add images to the digital asset manager at the check of a box.

When finished, you’ll be redirected to the dashboard main page and see your slideshow listed with others created by your fellow admins. Your team can easily edit or re-circulate slideshows at any time.
