How to use this slider component

This div block of instructions is hidden from site users with the .hidden-for-publish class.

Since Webflow doesn't support dynamic content in sliders yet, this slider uses a third party helper javascript (documentation here). In order to work, there must be two components on the page: a native webflow slider and a separate collection list. The helper JS automatically populates the empty slider from the collection list at load. The collection list is hidden, and the user sees only the dynamic slider. This javascript lives in this page's "Before Body" custom code section: Pages > Stories Template > Cog Icon > Custom Code > Before <body>

To change the slider's overall properties (animation speed, number of columns, etc), edit the slider component itself.

To change the style of the individual teasers in the list, or change/filter the results from the CMS, edit the collection list and not the slider.

The slider library doesn't support IE, so IE users will see the full list as a grid, not in a slider layout. Users with javascript disabled will also see the grid list instead of the slider.


You have just been entrusted with highly sensitive information. Adventurers, archaeologists, treasure hunters, and tomb raiders throughout history have spent their lives seeking the clues you now hold in your hand. Follow the locations on this trail and search for the hidden clues at each point of interest if you care to find one of history’s greatest hidden treasures.


Freedom of religion. Free elections. Free and fair trials. These are the well-known ideals upon which William Penn founded Philadelphia. But it is less known that he also intended his venture to be profitable. The first Church of England parish and the First Bank of the United States in Philadelphia have something in common as well. Keep a keen eye on the highest point at each spot to get your first clue.


A breeze of good omen blows in Philadelphia. The city attracted America’s greatest minds to draft the Declaration of Independence and begin the formation of a new country. Philadelphia also served for a time as the nation’s capital. Follow the path to Independence National Historical Park. Find the exact spot in the center of the triangle formed by Independence Hall, Congress Hall, and the Liberty Bell. There you will find your next clue.


This information has been handed down generation after generation by hard-working and down-to-earth Americans of all creeds and races who have kept it secret. At one point after 1893, the map was kept in the state-of-the-art refrigeration area at Reading Terminal Market. It is said that if you approach the Marquee with a sharp eye, you will find your third clue.


You’re no Indiana Jones, yet you’ve made it further than many other more skilled adventurers. Walk to the corner of 12th and Market and look to where the sun sets. Could it be that simple? Is the last clue that obvious, looking from high above at the city he once imagined?

No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown.

William Penn, “No Cross, No Crown,” 1669
