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.
