Interactive Merchandising Exercises

Exercise 1. Carousel and button

1. Create a piece of content. Change the background colour to something other than white. Add a background image, then add;

    • An image map over something on the background image, which launches a product panel (Note if you have a data feed, you'll need to assign this to the module first and ensure the template settings are data driven for product panels).
    • A button which invokes a youtube video

Exercise 2 - Slider and Templates

1. Create a different piece of content, with another background image. Then;

    • Add another slide to create a carousel.
    • Your carousel can show either next/previous buttons, screen selectors or both. What your carousel will show depends on the template settings – change whatever pagination is defaulted to something else (so it’s showing screen selectors instead of next/previous buttons, for example).
    • On the second slide of your carousel, add a slider. Change this to show image panels instead of product panels.

      • Add a background colour to the panel

    • Create some space either to the side or to the top of your e-publication (can make the canvas bigger, or the e-pub smaller  you don’t have any room)
    • Go into taxonomy and change the name of each of the pages to something more relevant.
    • Add a Table of Contents
    • Change the amount of columns in the Table of Contents.
