Make a slideshow of almost any other default block. Images, videos, groups, columns, etc. With a simple block interface and a couple of configurations you can customize and add as many slideshows in your content as you want.

In the first step when you add a new slide, you will see only a couple of blocks to select. This is for simplicity and to highlight the most common ones (and most tested), but you can add anything inside. For example, you want to slide posts, widgets, files, even WooCommerce products? Add a group block, or a cover, or columns and put any block inside.

A couple of examples of what you can configure with this plugin.

  • Multiple navigations (arrows, dots, thumbnails).
  • Auto start changing slides and stop on hover.
  • Change slides with touch gestures or arrow keys.
  • Multiple animations.
  • Multiple transitions and the possibility to add custom CSS transitions.
  • Custom time between slides and changing speed.
  • Custom interactions for videos.
  • Light and Dark theme.
  • Lightbox support.
  • A couple of arrows and dots types to choose.
  • Developer friendly, you can add your own assets with a couple of CSS lines.
