Carousels are built to display a revolving selection of content and can be set to automatically revolve or be controlled by the user (or both). They typically appear near the tops of pages, "above the fold."
- • Number of dots = number of content items ("slides") to be displayed.
- • Largest dot indicates to the user where they are in the series.
- • Slides can consist of images or small amounts of text with links out to other pages.
- • When used for promotional purposes, number of slides should be limited to 5 or less, as it is unlikely users will engage with more than that.
