  • Add a 'Nivo Slider' block to your desired layout and region in Layout
    Builder using the 'Add Block' button. Choose a name for this slider instance.
  • Go to the Layout's path and, in the region you placed your block find the
    link which says "No slides yet. Add slides." and follow this link to add
    slides. Use the "Options" local tasks tab to change options.

    link, reordered or restricted to displaying on a specific path.
