Adding Multiple Spotlight Items

By default when creating Spotlight, only one item is created. To add additional Spotlight items, just click the "Add Spotlight Carousel Item" button. 

Rearranging and Ordering Multiple Spotlight Items

If you have items, you can change the order as to which they will appear. To do so, right above each item, you will have the ability to drag and drop each one to determine the order.

Removing Spotlight Items

Also, if you would like to remove one of the items you created, all you have to do is click the remove button associated with the item you would like to remove. There will be a confirm removal that appears so if you didn't mean to remove an item, you can cancel it or you can confirm the removal. 

How to rearrange order of components

To rearrange the order of your components, drag the component by the icon to the left of the component as show above and move it to the correct order you desire.
