Slideshow Cheat Sheet

Slideshow images are limited to 400x300 pixels.
You can pause a slideshow by hovering your mouse over it.
The slideshow pre has to be one paragraph all together. If you try to break it up in to pieces (by inserting blank lines with the ENTER key), the slideshow breaks.

[slideshow:2, img=|IMAGE_URL|LINK|TITLE|DESCRIPTION|TARGET|, img=|IMAGE_URL|LINK|TITLE|DESCRIPTION|TARGET|]

Where:
IMAGE_URL: REQUIRED the image itself
LINK: if you want to provide a link to some page, put the URL here
TITLE: often the bold text over the image
DESCRIPTION: often the text under the image
TARGET: where the linked page will show: _blank (default) will show on another window, _parent and _top is only used when pages have frames, _self shows on the very window or you can use a window name.

Here's an example of the simplest slideshow, just 2 slides using pictures that are already on the Chariho site.

Here's a slideshow using pictures from other sites.
(This is called hotlinking and is frowned upon in the web community because you are increasing traffic to the site that is hosting the pictures. Copy the pictures to this site and host them here.)
