Joomla Custom Fields can simplify common tasks that you, your users or your clients regularly perform. In this video Vinny Hebert of Web Help U.S. demonstrates how to use Custom Fields to make a slideshow for a UIkit based Joomla template. NOTE: Later on in this stream we tried to figure out how to do a Bootstrap 4 slideshow with Custom Fields. We got a bit stuck and it took a while to figure out so we'll be putting a separate video on the channel for that. Watch live - there will be plenty of time for questions!
