Each slide in our new carousel will have: - A text Heading - A text Tagline - An image - An hyperlink(s)
This carousel is part of a CMS and will soon become available to content owners and because of this we need to set some limitations so each slide meets branding and readability guidelines.
At the moment, each slide is 600px wide, the 300px on the left is a div that contains the Heading and the Tagline. The 300px on the right is a div that contains the image.
If there is only one link for this slide:
- Should the entire slide be the hyperlink? or,
- Should just the image be the hyperlink? or,
- Should just the text be the hyperlink? or,
- Should I insert a "Read More" button to sit on top of the image/below the tagline?
Can each slide have multiple links? If so: - (assuming these multiple links are made up from separate hyperlinks within the tagline sentence) what link (if at all) should we assign to the image?
I have had a good search through the forum and see mention of topics discussing # of slides and usefulness of carousels (that was a funny read) but nothing about the internal structure of a slide.
