If your Big Cartel theme is a premium version, it will include home page slide show custom options as detailed in the support article How do I add a slide show to my Big Cartel home page? This article provides instructions for creating a second slide show with a premium theme.

Add Slide Show Two Custom Options

Navigate to your Design > Pages Big Cartel admin area, click the Layout page and locate your Home Page Slide Show custom options as detailed in the support article How do I add a slide show to my Big Cartel home page?

Copy the Slide Show Two Custom Options from the box below and paste them AFTER the existing Home Page Slide Show custom options.

{{ SLIDE SHOW TWO }}
{% assign display_slide_show_two = 'no' %}
{% capture slide_show_two_images %}
Replace this text with the URL of your slideshow images.
{% endcapture %}
{% assign display_content_after_slide_show_two = 'yes' %}
{% assign slide_show_two_effect = 'fade' %}
{% assign slide_show_two_slice_effect_number_of_slices = '15' %}
{% assign slide_show_two_time_of_transition = '800' %}
{% assign slide_show_two_time_between_transitions = '7000' %}
{% assign slide_show_two_previous_next_navigation = 'no' %}
{% assign slide_show_two_thumbnail_navigation = 'no' %}
{% assign slide_show_two_pause_on_hover = 'no' %}
{% assign slide_show_two_manual_control_only = 'no' %}
{% assign display_slide_show_two_on_page = '' %} {{ REQUIRED VALUE }}

In the Layout code, the result should look similar to this:

Add Slide Show Two Script

Remaining at the Layout code page, scroll downwards through the text box content until you find the code lines:

<script type='text/javascript' src='{{ tools_url }}/nivo-slider.js'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='{{ tools_url }}/aarfie-nivo-slider.js'></script>

If necessary, use your web browser’s find text function, typically located in your Edit > Find browser menu, and search for “nivo-slider.js“.

Copy all of the Slide Show Two Script Code from the box below and paste it immediately AFTER the above lines of code.

{% elsif page.url == display_slide_show_two_on_page and slide_show_two_images contains 'http' and display_slide_show_two == 'yes' %}
<script type='text/javascript' src='{{ tools_url }}/nivo-slider.js'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='{{ tools_url }}/aarfie-nivo-slider.js'></script>

Insert Slide Show Two Script

Add Slide Show Two Process Code

</div>
<div id="slide_caption_main"></div>
</div>

If necessary, use your web browser’s find text function, typically located in your Edit > Find browser menu, and search for “slide_caption_main“.

Save Changes and Set Options

Click the Save button when you have finished editing your Layout page code.

You can now use your Slide Show Two Custom Option controls, in the same way as your original slide show options (How do I add a slide show to my Big Cartel home page?).

IMPORTANT: For Slide Show Two to work, you must set the custom option:

{% assign display_slide_show_two_on_page = '' %} {{ REQUIRED VALUE }}

For example:

{% assign display_slide_show_two_on_page = '/our-lookbook' %} {{ REQUIRED VALUE }}
