Adding text to a fullscreen slideshow on Ver 7.1


Hi, I am using Squarespace version 7.1.

I want to create a slideshow of full bleed images with the SAME headlines / text but the image changes in the background.

At the moment I can only either add:

  1. A "headline" section with full bleed image and text on top
  2. or A "gallery" section with a slideshow of full bleed images without text.

Is there a workaround for this? If not I would like to downgrade from version 7.1 and use an existing template that gives me the option to do this.

Website is middl.io and password is staging only

Correction: Slideshow would have the same text but different images

@Bekka_fairmarry the other solution is to add the text , with the gif picture in the background. Its nice, but always the same text, but half of the solution done,

I just finished chatting with customer service. As of today, there is no way to build a simple slideshow banner with text in 7.1.

The only solution seems to be to rebuild your site with the 7.0 Brine or Bedford templates and follow the steps below.
