DescriptionA short description of the widget's use.We recommended this field be updated so the widget's purpose is clear at a glance from the template page.
LayerThe layer the widget is valid for.

The layering technology allows for the content to be shown to specific audiences.

This is handy if the content is only valid for a certain type of user, or if the same widget is required for more than one audience, but different configuration is needed.

The widget can be added to the zone more than once and the layer feature can determine which audience can see each widget.

Show Display Count With Title?

Determines whether a count is displayed under the slider's Title text.

E.g. If there are 8 articles in the slider and the slider is currently displaying numbers 2 through 6, the Display Count would read "Showing 2-6 of 8"
