Stories in a slideshow

Error

Error updating site page. We've logged the issue, please try again later.

A story slideshow is a set of stories automatically displayed one after another.

You can make a slideshow from any set of stories you search for, just like making a report or a visualisation. So you can have slideshows for specific services, conditions, places or procedures, just as you like.

You can run the slideshow on your own computer or tablet, or display it on a big screen, or even embed it as a widget in your web page.

How to make a slideshow

How to get started with the slideshow.

The slideshow being used in a general practice waiting room.

Using the slideshow on your own web page

Our slideshow can also be used as a widget on your own web page.

Here's how that might look (it needs a little more space than we can give it here):


To embed the slideshow in this way, you'll need an "embed code" which you place into the html of a page on your own site. If you can't edit the html of your web site yourself, you'll need help from a site administrator to do this.

Getting the embed code for a slideshow

1. Create the slideshow you want to embed on your page (follow the link above for instructions).

2. Copy this template embed code into a plain text editor:

<iframe frameborder="0" height="400" width="600" src="SLIDESHOW" >You must have a browser that supports iframes to view the Care Opinion widget</iframe>

3. Copy the address of your slideshow from your browser address bar. It will look something like this:

https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?nacs=rwdda_180

4. Now carefully select the text SLIDESHOW in your template embed code (not including the quotes), and paste in the slideshow address you copied.

5. The result will look something like this (depending on your own slideshow):

<iframe frameborder="0" height="400" width="600" src="https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?nacs=rwdda_180" >You must have a browser that supports iframes to view the Care Opinion widget</iframe>

6. That's your embed code, ready to add to your website!

Extra embed code settings you can change

As you might guess looking at your embed code, you can change the size of the slideshow on your page. Just fiddle with the height and width settings to get the size you want.

Whether you are using the slideshow in a screen or in a widget, there are also some extra settings you can use to set how the slideshow will behave. These settings are added to the link before you use it.

To set the display to type or handwriting

Using handwriting: https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?hw=true

Not using handwriting: https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?hw=false

To set the handwriting and remove the handwriting button so it can't be changed, use the hwx parameter:

Using handwriting: https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?hwx=true

Not using handwriting: https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?hwx=false

To set the slideshow speed (from 1 to 8)

Set speed to 6: https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?sp=6

To set the speed and remove the speed button so it can't be changed, use the spx parameter:

Set speed to 3 and hide the speed button: https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?spx=3

Combine the settings

You can combine parameters as shown in this example:

Set speed to 6 and don't use handwriting: https://www.careopinion.org.uk/slideshow?sp=6&hw=false
