Answer: 
Hi globalwebgrant!

Re: Custom block slideshow

You can create a slideshow anywhere else on your website as a custom block.

To create a custom block, open this file:

app/design/frontend/[your_interface]/[your_theme]/layout/magicslideshow.xml

and alter this block:

<reference name="content">...</reference>

in this section of the file:

<cms_page>...</cms_page>

If you have any further questions, please contact our Technical team who will be able to help:

Thanks!
