8.2. Creating a Sitka New Items Carousel

Depending on what you've added to your library collection in the previous month, you have a choice of the type of Sitka new items carousel to display on the home page (e.g. new adult fiction, new teen non-fiction, etc.)

  1. Log into your LibPress website, go to your Dashboard and click Highlights in the left-hand navigation pane. You can create a new Highlight or edit an existing Highlight. Your LibPress site comes with a New Items highlight already in place. If it's there, you can edit that Highlight and skip to Step #3.

  2. Give your new highlight a title, e.g. New Adult Fiction.

  3. One or more carousels can be added to the Highlight by adding shortcode(s) that look like [sitka_carousel type="adult_fiction" transition="fade"].

    If carousel_type is left out it will default to adult_fiction, otherwise it can be one of:

    adult_fiction (Default)
    adult_nonfiction
    adult_largeprint
    adult_dvds
    adult_music
    teen_fiction
    teen_nonfiction
    juveline_fiction
    juveline_nonfiction
    juveline_dvdscds

    If transition is left out it will default to fade, otherwise it can be either fade or swipe.

  4. Select the column position from the Show Highlight in Column# box on the right side of the Dashboard.

    You can have multiple carousel shortcodes within the same highlight.

    You can also include additional content above or below the shortcode, similar to the example below.

Note

If the carousel is displaying some, but not all of the expected titles, there may be an issue with the bibliograhic records your items are attached to. Please refer to https://bc.libraries.coop/support/libpress/libpress-booklists/
