On successful completion of this lesson, students will understand how to set up and use the ‘Adverts’ function.
Your website has the function to display adverts on different pages of your website.
Adverts are managed from the ‘Components’ page and these can be globally across the website switched ‘ON’ or ‘OFF’. To edit adverts you need to click the ‘Manage Adverts’ link in the ‘Adverts’ section.
On the ‘Manage Adverts’ page there is a section called ‘All Adverts Lists’ which shows the list of adverts that are currently available. Each advert is a group of images that can be separately named and then hyperlinked to different pages.
Editing an advert
To edit an existing advert, scroll down in the ‘All Adverts List’ section to the advert to be edited and then click on an image you want to edit within the advert.
This will bring up the ‘Edit Advert’ window which allows a title and a hyperlink to be added to that image. Once those have been entered click the ‘Update Advert’ button to save and implement the changes. Repeat the steps for each image as required.
Add or delete advert images
