Muse provides a quick and easy way to add interactivity to your site. In this video, Product Manager Dani Beaumont uses widgets to create dynamic menus and a photo gallery.
In this video, you'll learn how to add interactivity to websites you build with Adobe Muse. You'll get an overview of the different types of widgets available in the Widgets Library. Then you'll take a closer look at adding Menu Bar widgets.
In Muse, the Menu Bar widgets dynamically display the page names and link to each page. As you edit your site plan and rename or create new pages, the menu items update automatically — ensuring that the menu never has broken links. You'll also check out a Thumbnail Slideshow widget to learn how to configure the display options and add your images to the slideshow. You'll see how the thumbnails are generated and how easy it is to control the transitions in the slideshow.
