Marquee Widget

The Marquee widget displays a large image or video along with a headline, text, logo, and button. This widget can display a single image or various slides and will automatically rotate through them. The Marquee widget is typically used at the top of most homepages.

Check out our guide "Adding Widgets to Your Page" to learn how to add this widget to any row, panel or section on your website.

Below are a few examples:


The Marquee should be used at the top of most landing and homepages in a full-width row. Images should be .jpg or .png and not smaller than 1200 x 600 pixels and no larger than 1920 × 1080 pixels. A smaller image will reduce bandwidth requirements and make the page load faster.

Note: This widget has various settings to adjust the height, gradient, and time between scrolling slides.
