Module Type: Featured Items

Featured Item modules appear as a slideshow on your public facing site.

The featured item module is only meant to display a list of Issue Pages and Engagements. If you select a list that includes other items (bills, votes, etc.), only the Issue Page and/or Engagement will be shown on the slideshow.

Start by creating your list. To change the order of the items in your list, click on the three dashes found on the far left of the gray link box and drag up or down. To remove an item from your list, click on delete button

To add a Featured Item module to your public facing site, hover your mouse over the Sites tab and select Standard Pages. Click on the  “+ add module” button in the page section where you would like it to appear and select Featured Item.
