# Virtual Live Gala updated
Take your "Live" event from in-person to a fully Virtual Live Gala including live bidder updates and complete control over the items being bid on via the Live Auction Controller.
# Adding Your Live Auction Page
In most cases, you will be Adding Your Live Auction Page to the auction website as a stand-alone page for your guests to visit. This is where the main action will be taking place for the Virtual Live Gala auction management and bidder interaction. See Add Live Auction Page for more details on how to do this.
# Live Auction Bidding Section
The Live Auction Bidding Section consists of two main elements. The Live Auction Controller and a specially configured Item Details element.
You can add additional elements to this page either in new sections or new rows in the existing section. For example, you might look at adding a Text Element at the top of the page with a short introduction. See the Website Editor section of the User Guide for more details on this.
# Live Auction Controller
The Live Auction Controller row element of the section will be where you control your "Live" auction.
A message is displayed at the top of the element with the reminder it is only viewable by signed in users. There is an area for the Current Active Group item(s) as well as tabs to view Bidding, Next Up, and Active Group History details.
The Live Auction Controller can only be added to a page via the Add Section operation. This helps to ensure the Item Details Container element is added and configured correctly for use with the element on the page.
# Item Details Container
The Item Details Container is pre-configured to display only the current "Live" auction item. When the Live Bidding Auction Section is added this element will be "empty" by default as no "Live" item has been selected, yet.
For reference purposes only, the Item Details Container does not set a "Focused Item" and does enable the "Sync to live auction" option. These options should not be modified.
