Introducing The Most Flexible and Powerful Slider Plugin For Joomla Website Builder Gridbox

Content Slider Plugin

To explain what is a Content Slider, let’s imagine Gridbox plugin Slideshow! Now imagine that inside the slide you can add nested rows with columns, and of course, you can add any Gridbox plugin! This is a Content Slider, the plugin which allows you to add any content into the slide.

Since the Content Slider is a mix of the Gridbox Grid System and plugin Slideshow, in your hands an unlimited number of options.

Configuring Content Slider

As we have clarified earlier, the plugin Content Slider is based on the Gridbox plugin Slideshow. To start configuring the Content Slider plugin, click on the "Settings" icon in the top right corner.

In the plugin settings, you will find already known settings: 6 sliding animation effects, autoplay, pause on mouseover, ability to set a style of the navigation, and etc.

We want to pay attention to slide options. For each slide, you can select your own background, overlay, and link. Click on the icon settings to start editing the slide.

As a background could be not just a picture, you can select from Color, Gradient, Image, Video and None.

As an overlay for the slide can be used a solid color with some transparency and of course you can set a unique gradient for each slide. Feel free to mix!

Add Any Plugin to Slide

Why did we call this plugin Content Slider? Because you can add Gridbox content (plugin) inside the slide and even Joomla module.
