Image/slide settings

You have the following additional options in the Image Settings:

  • Add Link to Slide. Makes the whole image a button that can be linked.
  • Slider Title. Adds large text to the slider image. To hide the title, click the eye icon (this will apply to only this image/slide).
  • Slider Caption. Adds smaller text to the slider image below the title text. Use the text editor to add color, emphasis (bold, italics and underline), and bullets to text in the caption box. To hide the caption, click the eye icon (this will apply to only this image/slide).
  • Button. Adds a button to the slider image that can be linked like a button widget. To hide the button, click the eye icon (this will apply to only this image/slide).
  • Alt Text. Adds alternate text to display for SEO reasons or when the image cannot be displayed. You can either type your own alt text or click the Sparkle () icon to use the AI Assistant to generate alt text. Repeat for each individual image in the Image Slider. The Sparkle icon will be disabled if an image is not selected.

Note:

Alt text generated by the AI Assistant is in the same language as the page’s current language.
