Slideshow is a Paragon tool members can use to showcase their own listings. It can also showcase any Paragon listing. The Slideshow is based on Search result listings.
You create slideshows of listings on-line in Paragon. However, the slideshow will play whether the members are on-line or off-line. The off-line content for the Slideshow is saved in your browser’s cached memory. If you empty your browser’s cached memory, you will delete the off-line ability to play slideshows you have created. They will still play when you are on-line.
This Quick Start Guide shows you how to create Slideshows.
Note: The URL that is generated when a Slideshow is created is good for 30-days. When the Slideshow expires, the Slideshow creator will receive an expiration notice E-mail.
