For those of you who are not aware, Google Slides can be embedded directly into the ‘top’ of Discourse, making a very effective, animated, rotating banner. Very useful for adding a little eye candy, or inserting your own paid ads, or perhaps info about your site.
They are very easy to ‘make’ - simpler even than PowerPoint and… are free (at least in low volume usage).
Here’s 2 slides from one of my test sites, with each element on the page being timed to arrive in sequence using various effects. Transitions between slides can be chosen too. Although for most of us, simpler will probably be less annoying after a while.
Worth taking a look in my view. Very reliable. Simple. Effective and did I mention FREE.
