Photocrati Feature – Background Slideshows

With Photocrati 4.8 out we decided to take an opportunity to share some of the new features we’ve included in the theme.

While working on the left side head feature in the Photocrati 4.8 we wanted to go beyond just a static background image. So we decided to take our slideshow gallery and add a similar feature to your homepage.

So now whether you’re using a left side header or other layout style, you can take advantage of a background slideshow.

Check out the video:

The way that the sorting works for this is extremely basic, but down the road we might had more sorting options. At the moment the slideshow will be displayed in the order that the images are uploaded. No other sorting options exist at the moment.

Choose static, rotation or slideshow. Choose your slideshow intervals and effects and save. Refresh your homepage and check out your new background slideshow.

If you want to hide all the content on your homepage then be sure to pick the Page without Content page template. This can be found by editing the page used as your homepage and then picking the page template from within the options there.

This opens the doors for theme customization and design and we cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks and enjoy,
Scott
