EasySocial generator

This dynamic slide generator is available in the PRO version only.

With this dynamic slide generator you can show the contents of your EasySocial events, groups or albums.

Tutorial

Step 1

Create a new slider, or use an existing one.

Step 2

Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

Step 3

Choose one of the EasySocial generators.

Step 4

Set up your generator, choose the settings you think you want, change the number of slides to how many do you want to be in your slider, change the cache expiration to the time you want your slider to look for new data, and if you want to, you can check, what will be on your slides in the record viewer.

Step 5

Now you can start working on how your slides will look with the datas of the first slide. You can put down layers, and use the VARIABLE signs to put that data inside them, what you want there to be.

If something is not clear, check out how the dynamic slide generators work.
