Last week we began rolling the Post Carousel out of Beta, the start of our releasing several Beta features to non-Beta subscribers. This week, we've started rolling the Sidebar Carousel out of Beta as well.
If you're not familiar with the Sidebar Carousel, it places a slideshow of the images from one category of posts to your blog's sidebar. These pictures will then rotate, based on the various settings you can choose. It's a great way to highlight specific categories or images on your blog in an eye-catching way. You can even add more than one Sidebar Carousel if you'd like.
To add the Sidebar Carousel to your blog, simply go to Design > Content, find the Carousel option under Widgets, select the options you'd like to use, and save your changes. Easy as pie! Our Knowledge Base article has more information on this topic.
As of right now, this is out to 25% of our non-Beta subscribers, but everyone else should see it over the upcoming weeks.
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.
