Weebly Pro header slideshow option is one of the eminent features of the Weebly Pro pack which can be ideally used for landing pages. The look of your page will become beautiful with the images sliding in the header. You can also link each images to different pages in your site to increase time spent on your site by the user. Unfortunately Weebly disabled the header slideshow feature in all responsive themes but you can still add slideshow in header following this tutorial. In this article we will discuss how to add header slideshow in non-responsive themes for Weebly Pro and better plan users.
How to Create a Header Slideshow?
Non-responsive themes will have different header types (or page layouts). So when you are creating a page to add header slideshow select the page layout as tall header, short header or landing page according to your requirement. Obviously no header layout will not have any header image, so you should not select this header type for creating header slideshow.
Prepare the images with appropriate size for suiting the selected header size. You can view the header image size using inspect element option in the browser.
Once your image are ready, go to Weebly editor and move the mouse over the header image. You will see the option for creating a slideshow as shown in the below picture.
Click on the “Create Slideshow” option and upload all your images.

You can add captions to each image and also link the image to any page on your site. Any point of time you can add or delete images to the slideshow.
