Slider Revolution: What Makes This WordPress Plugin So Great
There are tons of great features built into Slider Revolution to make creating custom sliders for your website easy. Here are a few of our favorites.
The plugin is responsive ready and includes multiple slider layout options to make your life easier. First choose your slider type: standard slider, hero scene (single slide), or a carousel slider. Then select a layout: auto, full-width, or full-screen.
The auto layout option allows you to set your slider size using exact pixels, with additional options to set the slider sizes at various screen width (desktop, laptop, tablet, and phone). If you leave this option on its default setting it will stretch your slider to the main container width as defined by your WordPress theme.
The full-width layout is exactly what it sounds like – a full-width slider option that will fully stretch across from left to right. You will still need to define the height of your slider.
The most unique layout option is full-screen. With this option, you can create fantastic sliders that literally fill your entire screen, no matter the size of your browser or device (you can even use this option to add full-screen sliders with videos for even more impact).
Multiple Content Sources
Want to create a slider for your posts? Or for your WooCommerce products? Not a problem – choose from 11 different content sources when creating your slider.
As of writing this post, Slider Revolution supports content based on blog posts, specific posts, the current post/page (great if you want to add a featured slider to blog post or portfolio item), Flickr, Instagram, WooCommerce, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo or the default slider (upload your own images/video).
Slider Revolution makes it easy for you to create custom sliders by adding options for just about everything. Choose your slide delay, navigation arrows, custom fonts, add parallax backgrounds, slider location (add margins), add media layers, insert buttons, select slide transitions, and more all using the drop-down menus throughout the plugin.
And on top of that, you can customize just about everything and even save your own presets to make reusing font styles, slide transitions, layer animations, and more super easy.
Add text, links, images, and videos with a few clicks of your mouse. This gives you the ability to create information-rich slides that your readers and clients will be able to identify with. Plus each of these media types is added as its own layer with unique animations, timing, and styles that you set using Slider Revolution’s super options.
