This widget is used to manage the rotating "feature" images at the top of your home page. It will display a series of photos with text, rotating in a loop from right to left. The slider comes with controls so a viewer can quickly flip through the available slides.
To begin creating items to be used in the Owl Feature Slider, click on the green + Slide in the upper right=hand corner and fill out the necessary information.
Please be aware that this widget will only work on certain sites (themes) that have the necessary programming. If you place this widget and it does not work, we recommend switching to the Owl slider widget.
Recommendation - We recommend setting and keeping with a set height and width for the photos that are used in the Owl Slider. This will prevent elements below the widget from shifting up and down as the slides change.
