Slider Block

Heading Size

You have the ability to select the heading level of the slider items. Heading 2 is set by default, but may need to be adjusted depending on where you nest the slider block within the page. 

NOTE: The heading size will apply to all items within this collection.

Headline

The slide's headline grabs people's attention to draw them in.

Content

The content field will display over the image underneath the headline. 

Link

Additionally, you can wrap the slider in an accessible, clickable link. The ‘Link Text’ will appear as a button below the slide’s content. The text should clarify where users will be directed when they click on the selected slide.

URL: Start typing the title of a piece of content to select it. You can also enter an internal path such as /node/add or an external URL such as http://example.com. Enter <front> to link to the front page. Enter <nolink> to display link text only.
