About Soliloquy slideshow
The Soliloquy slideshow plugin has now been activated and the link can be found on the left pane; scroll down almost to the end.
With this slide show you can now have multiple slideshows on your site, and you’re not limited to only 5 photos; however, be aware that the more photos you add to the slideshow will affect the load time on the page. It’s a good idea to have all your images resized to about the same dimensions.
A new feature is that you now have a widget you can add a slideshow to; please see the Bennett Trust website as an example.
