The first step in adding Billboard to your site is to create a group to store images in. The link to Billboard in the WordPress admin area is in the DisplayBuddy section of the menu. When you click the Billboard link it will direct you to the area where you can create a group. The information requested to create a group is a name for that group, select a method for resizing the images in that group, width, and height. After you have created a group it will be added to a table that lists all of the existing groups and lists information about them.

+
* '''Description''' - The description will be used as the alt tag when it is displayed on your site.
+
* '''Link URL''' - The URL of where you would like the images to link to.
+
* '''Image''' - Here you will select and image from your computer and Billboard will use one of it's methods to resize it to the group width and height that you have set.
+
* '''Priority''' - If random is turned on and only specific amount of images from your Billboard group will be displayed you can set a priority on which images are more likely to be shown.
+
* '''Require Link URL''' - This allows you to set whether a link will be required in order for you to add images.

Billboard can be displayed in widget areas on your site. Navigate to the Widgets area under Appearance in the WordPress Admin area. Drag the Billboard widget into the widget area that you would like for it to display in and fill out the widget form to configure that instance of Billboard just the way you want it.
