New Feature: Slideshow Photo Galleries!

We just added a new feature that many of our members have requested: slideshow photo galleries!

After adding the ability to create slideshows with your header images, the dev team have now added a new slideshow option for the photo gallery feature. This means you can add a slideshow to the content area of any page on your website!

How it works

First, add a photo gallery feature to the page. Then click on Gallery settings, and for the Gallery Type, select Slideshow.

Next, you can select to "Zoom image to fill frame" to have images that are uniform in height/width.

You can also select “Auto-start” to have the photos automatically advance when a fan lands on your site. If you don’t check Auto-start, the photos can be advanced manually using the forward/back arrows.

Hope you guys enjoy the new slideshow gallery feature. If you decide to add one to your site, be sure to post a link in the comments!


Here are some slideshow photo galleries in action right now:

whats ideal pixel size? Zoom is too much and leaving as is is not enough for most of my pictures to fill the frame on this setting ")

Viola's Babygirl's Ventures, LLC: Took me a bit to find it, the homepage is pretty busy. I would suggest just placing it in the Photos section, might be easier for people to see it.

Do you think bandzoogle will add video slideshows in the near future?
Dave Cool
Posted by Dave Cool on Sep 5 2014 2:35 PM
Keez: I'll pass on the suggestion, but we don't have our own native video player, so what you could do is create a Playlist using YouTube. There are also some online tools to create & embed video slideshows.

I would love to know the ideal pixel to get those pics exactly in the zoom box properly.
