WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Image Carousel Page Element

This document will walk you through adding an Image Carousel to your page in the WordPress UW Theme. For an example, see https://wiscweb.wisc.edu/page-elements/image-carousel/.

Note: This is not the same as the Hero Carousel. The Image Carousel appears in the content of your page, rather than the fixed position of the Hero Carousel at the top of the page. Instructions for the Hero Carousel can be found (link to hero carousel document).

Layout Availability

The Image Carousel is only available in the One Column Content Layout option. The space and images required would not translate to the smaller two and three column layouts.
