Layout & Visual

Contents

Shadow Type

Shadows will be shown beneath the slider.  Choose between 6 different styles, or choose “No Shadow” (the default option).  And preview the Shadow Type as shown in the Primer section above.

Dotted Overlay Size

Dotted overlays are transparent grid-like graphics that will be placed above the slides, giving the slider a “mesh” type look (4 styles available).  Preview the options as shown in the Primer section above.

Slider Background

The slider’s main background.  Normally if your individual slides have their own background images, the slider’s main background would only be visible when the slider first loads, and before the first slide displays.  But setting a background here for the slider itself is particularly useful for when you’re using “Transparent” slides (slides with no background image).

Choose a solid color or set an image as the background.  Apply some padding to give your slider a border.  And set specific background image options such as Background Fit, Background Repeat, and Background Position.

The slider's animated preloader graphic.

The spinner will be shown when the slider first loads, and also for additional slides if LazyLoad is being used.  Choose between 6 different spinner styles, or choose “Off” for no spinner.

Disable Slider on Mobile

Choose to disable the entire slider on mobile devices.  If disabled, you  can replace the slider with a simple fallback image.

Disable Ken Burn on Mobile

The Ken Burns effect is an advanced animation that looks great on desktop computers, but for mobile devices, providing a more simple slider can sometimes be a better user-experience.  Depending on your preference, toggle the KenBurns effect on and off for mobile with this setting.

Hide Element Under Width

Choose to hide the entire slider, individual layers, or all layers when the screen size is below a specific pixel width (i.e. 640px, etc.).

Hiding layers is useful for when lots of content displays nicely on desktop, but there isn’t really enough real estate (screen space) to fit everything on mobile.

“Predefined Layers” are specific layers you’ve designed to “hide” under the pixel width set here for this setting.

Position on the page

The default alignment for the slider.  Options are “left”, “center” or “right”.

Margin Top, Margin Bottom

Add some space above or below the slider in relation to other content on the page.  Both positive and negative numbers supported.
