Often a webmaster wants to inform visitors about the last news or the most important articles in his site, expecially when we accesses the homepage.
Many sites use a news slider to allow users to discover interesting things and you can go the same way with Alterpages by using the News Slideshow.

The News Slideshow slides automatically when the user don't interact with it to grap his attention and inform him about something interesting.
Every news can have a title, a tagline and a link.
