Managing Sliders

We all know that slid­ers are very pop­u­lar and peo­ple just can’t get enough of them. No won­der that Mies comes with a bunch of flex­i­bil­i­ty con­cern­ing the slid­ers. Start­ing from here, I will show you how to eas­i­ly get a slid­er, what kind of slid­ers are avail­able, and which are the pos­si­bil­i­ties you can take advan­tage by using our theme.

It’s good to know there are two dif­fer­ent types of slid­ers that could be achieved in the blink of an eye:

Frontpage Slider

On our demo site, we’re using the Project Lists page tem­plate. Under Projects Lists block, you can select Slid­er for Lay­out – this way each slide will show the project hero con­tent. After choos­ing the Slid­er lay­out you can select the source of the projects to be fea­tured  (see print screen):

  • From lat­est projects — will dis­play a cho­sen num­ber of the lat­est ones added to your site
  • By Cat­e­go­ry —  allows you to select a port­fo­lio cat­e­go­ry and that will be dis­played on your home­page.
  • Select­ed — gives you the pos­si­bil­i­ty to pick spe­cif­ic projects to be revealed on the Home­page slid­er.

Regular Slider

On each page or project, you can have a slid­er too. If you choose mul­ti­ple images to be shown in Hero Area it will be trans­formed into a slid­er. (see print screen). Once you do that, some new Slideshow Options will be avail­able, like Image Image Scal­ingEnabling/Disabling Slid­er Auto­play, and Choos­ing the delay between slides. Check out an exam­ple from our demo site here.

Please note that the Hero Area con­tent is unique for each page sec­tion, so if you’re using mul­ti­ple images to cre­ate a slid­er, the con­tent will be only avail­able for the first slide.

This article applies to Mies, as they share the same underlying structure.
