|Welcome to the support documentation for the|
UBC CMS Service.
|UBC Collab Theme|
The CLF Advanced WordPress theme allows you to create a Spotlight Rotation feature that could be placed on the Frontpage of your site (by default) or on any page of your site (using a specific shortcode).
The CLF theme offers you 5 possible styles for the Spotlight Rotation: UBC.ca Standard Spotlight, Horizontally Sliding Gallery, Blank Sliding, Transparent Sliding, and Multi post Sliding.
UBC.ca Standard Spotlight
(numbers on image correspond steps)
IMPORTANT: Make sure that the post is associated with Spotlight category or whatever category you created to pull the content from into the Spotlight rotation.
By default Spotlight Rotation is set to appear on the Frontpage, however you can insert Spotlight Rotation on any page by using the slideshow shortcode: [slideshow width="560" height="300"].
NOTE: Width and height parameters correspond to image width and height.
The slideshow display follows the order chronological by the date of the post. For example, if Post #1 is published on March 15th, 2012 and Post #2 is published on March 16th 2012, then the slideshow will display Post #2 first and then Post #1. The published date can be modified in the Edit Post page. To change the order of the slideshow simply change the published date of post #2 to March 14th (or any date before the published date of post #1).
