Custom items provide a convenient way to add custom content to a widget without using content from any specific Joomla component. Custom items are assigned to a widget by group, therefore all custom items must belong to a group.
To create a widget with custom content:
Go to Minitek Slider Dashboard and click on "Groups", then click on "New".
Enter a name for this group and click on "Save & Close".
On the next step you must create some items in this group. Go to Minitek Slider Dashboard and click on "Custom Items", then click on "New".
A custom item has the following data:
Title: The title for this item (required).
Image: An optional image. This image will be displayed in the widget.
Title/Image URL: An optional url for the item title and image.
Category: An optional category name.
Category URL: An optional category url.
Tags: Does not apply for Minitek Slider.
Author: An optional author name.
Author URL: An optional author url.
Description: Optional text that will be displayed in the widget as item introtext. HTML is allowed.
Assign the custom item to a group and click on "Save & Close".
Repeat the process to create as many items as you want.
Finally, assign the group to a widget. You must select Custom Items as widget source and then select the group in the field Data source > Group.
