I'd like to have 4-5 images transitioning on the home page; is that possible?

We have two kind of image transitions. Image Scroller will scroll images of your choice through up to 15 images on a loop. There are also Image Effect for individual images that will add transitions to the image loading on your page, like the image loading with an effect. This is similar to a PowerPoint transition between slides.

Both can be found under 'Insert' and under 'More"

There need to be more options for transitioning images.  The current options are terrible and reminiscent of a decade ago. Constantly scrolling images are nauseating and the "power point" transitions are like a poorly made home video.

I wish Homestead would look around the web for a few days and implement some of the features that are available elsewhere.

If you would like to do something that not built into the Homestead elements, you can do so by adding any 3rd party HTML that may be able to do different kinds of transitions and effects. This would be adding the HTML shown in the picture above, and putting the 3rd party HTML in there.

Yes, except that I don't have any idea how to find, use or implement html (nor do I want to). That is why I pay for and use a drag and drop, DIY web design company.  Aren't they supposed to provide these types of improvements?

Correct, and we do update SiteBuilder Plus with bug fixes and updated elements. There isn't a set timetable per element when it will get updated, but they could be improved in a future release.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate all SiteBuilder has to offer.  When I needed to build a site on a very low budget it was one of the only options.  That is why I'm still with them.

These days however, there are hundreds of providers that seem "hungry" and provide innovation at a quicker pace.
