Q- How do I browse the posts in the slide shows?
A- Content i.e. posts on this site can be browsed, in most cases, in a slide show format. To view the posts in the slide show one at a time and at your pace, you can hover over the thumbnails below the slider. You can also view all the posts in a self-running slide show by selecting the “Play” button to the left of the thumbnails. If there are more than 10 posts in a slide show, they will appear as additional thumbnails. At any time during a slide show, you can hover over any thumbnail to temporarily pause the slide show or you can turn off the slide show by selecting the “Pause” button.
Posts in slide shows are composed of a Featured Image, Title and an Excerpt. To view a post, click (or tap) on the Featured Image once or on Title (in blue). You also have the option to double click on its corresponding thumbnail to open the post.
To return to the home page, click (or tap) once on the Site title in the header.
