Quite often, slideshows are used as a navigation device with adverts/images that link to different sections on the site. This might be used to showcase new products, latest news, recent blog posts or even just interesting sections of your website.
To make this work, you need to have each slide link to a different page on your website.
WOWSlider makes it easy to create this kind of navigational slideshow.
Start by creating your slideshow. Use the ‘add images and videos’ button to load your slides into the slideshow.
Each slide will appear as a thumbnail down the left-hand side of the screen.
Click on the first slide to open it into the main window. Below the slide you will see that there are some option fields: ‘Title’ and ‘Url’ and then an additional box for a description.
The ‘Url’ field is where you specify the web address that you want the slide to link to. You can copy and paste this directly from your website. Make sure you include the entire address, e.g. http://www.yourwebsite.com/yourlandingpage
Use the drop-down menu next to the ‘Url’ field to specify if you want the webpage to open in the same window or a new window — most of the time you will probably want the link to open in the same window.
Repeat this process for each slide in the slideshow. If you are using one slide to link to a webpage, you should ensure that all slides link somewhere in order to be consistent and make things easier for your website visitors.
