The Slider Markup

The Slider will always fit within the wrapping container with its Width, and will auto set the height. We recommend to give an Unique ID (in our example below we used id=”slider1″) for each Slider you embed into your Document, which will allow to reference on the Slider via its API and Initialisation Scripts later.

Avoid spacing, paddings, margin on ul, li elements within the slider, and in case you use Global styling on html tags, you should make sure that they are not negatively influence the slider content.

The following example will create two slides, with one single layer on each slide, and simple fade effects as slide transitions.

A simple sliders Markup could look like this:

Initialising the Slider

Finally, you need to place the Calling jQuery script in the Footer to initialise the Slider on your Content. Revolution Slider 5.0 delivers you over 170+ Options you can set via the Initialisation rutine, and over a few hundred options and settings due the Content Markups.  In our documentation you will find detailed examples and descriptions of all possible settings and options.  In this following example we call the slider with minimal settings relying on the Slider Default settings.
