The Slideshow media item is a great way to show a gallery of photos and videos, create a power point style slideshow, or display a collection of PDF resources.
The Slideshow contents are generated by a list in the theme options. The items in the slideshow can be images, videos, files, or other media items. To create a power point style slideshow, you could use the Re-usable Content media item to create each slide and then use them with the Slideshow.
Slideshow Items - this is the list of slides.
Type - the slide can be an image, video, file (PDF), or another media item.
Caption - this will add a caption underneath the slide.
Slideshow Control Style
Footer with Captions and Counter - adds a footer with captions and buttons to slide with.
