We are very pleased to introduce a new and exciting feature for our Beta Team subscribers: The Post Carousel!
You may be asking yourself what exactly is a Post Carousel and why should you add it to your blog? Let us tell you!
The Post Carousel adds a slideshow of the latest posts to the top of your blog. Photos from the most recent posts will rotate through the carousel. It's a great way to catch your reader's eye as they visit your blog.
You can see a live demo of the Post Carousel hard at work here.
The Post Carousel can be customized in many ways. You can set the maximum number of posts to display and restrict it to just a specific category. You can choose the title position, automatic start, add a pause button, and much, much more.
To add the Post Carousel to your blog, simply go to Design > Content, check the box for Post Carousel, select the options you'd like to use, and save your changes. We have more information on this in the Knowledge Base.
Want to give the Post Carousel a go but aren't a member of our Beta Team? It's easy to join! Just go to the Account tab, check the Beta Team option, and save your changes.
Beta Team, we'd love to hear what you think about the Post Carousel! Please open a help ticket with your feedback so that we can make this the best feature possible.
