The order of how the ads will display in the slideshow will depend on how they are set up in the back-end system. Between the opening and closing slides, the active ads will be alphabetized by last name for each sponsorship level/background.  To change the order of appearance, edit the last name on the ad itself.


2020 Version Solution:


How to get there: 

  • Login to your Wizevents account.
  • Click on the Websites (Journals) tab.
  • Locate the event you'd like to make changes to. Click on the name of the event OR on the same line, under the actions column,  the three dots and choose manage ads.
  • Locate the ad that you'd like to make changes to by typing the last name into the search box. Click on the ad name OR on the same line, under the actions column, click on the three dots and choose edit.


What to do:

Scroll down to the "Last Name" field.

Make whatever change is needed to that field, alphabetically speaking, so that the ad appears in your desired sequence. For example, you may be able to enter the word "and" before the last name forcing the slide towards the beginning of the sequence (see Additional Notes below). 

Click Save With Current Status to maintain your changes or Discard to cancel your changes.

To review the updated slideshow presentation, go to the "Setup/Tools" tab, and then click on "Play Slideshow with Controls".


Additional Notes:

If the last name you have inserted is "Smith", it will appear between ads with last names Karl and Turner, in the same sponsorship category.

However, if the ad is formatted with last name "and Jeff Smith", it will appear before last names Karl and Turner, in the same sponsorship category.
