Adding a Video Link to Your Home Slideshow [Classic]

This article will show you how to add links to videos to your home slideshow.

The home page of Placester sites cannot accommodate video embeds, so a great workaround is to link to a video from a slideshow caption. By linking to videos from your slideshow, you'll allow your potential clients to see video tours of specific properties that are showcased in your slideshow images.

Site Settings > Slideshow

The first step is to log into the backend of your Placester Site. Hover over Site Settings and click Slideshow.


Adjusting Your Slideshow Images

If you haven't already adjusted your slideshow images, you can learn how to do so in this article. You can choose from the following options:

  1. Use a set of our default images
  2. Add a custom slideshow with your own images
  3. Do a mix of both - select one of our sets of images but replace some of them with images of your choice

Adding a Caption and Link 

Once you’ve uploaded the desired slideshow images, you’ll notice that you can add a caption and link to each image in the slideshow.

In this example, we've added a caption that lets the consumer know to click the link to see a video tour of the property displayed in the slideshow image.

Once saved, the caption on your slideshow image will be clickable linking to the desired video.
