POWR Slider is the easiest way to add photos, videos, banners, and more to a rotating carousel to your WooCommerce site.
Choose Your Template
The first thing you’ll want to do is choose your starting temple in the Template tab. There are several helpful options, such as Slider, Carousel, Testimonial, Hero, and Logo. Or you can start from scratch with the Blank template.
Once you’ve chosen your starting template, open the Content tab to edit the contents of your slides. You’ll see slides for the default content, which you can delete, and a button at the bottom that says Add Element. You can choose to add:
- Image – Add directly from your computer, or paste in a link.
- Video – Paste in a link from YouTube or Vimeo.
- Banner – Add an image, title, subtitle and button, and choose layout.
- Document – Add alternate file types directly from your computer.
- Event – Add an image, title, subtitle and timeframe.
Once you get the hang of adding slides to your slider, you can start to customize the design of the plugin to fit your needs. For instance, you can choose how slides transition from one to the next, adjust the size and style of captions, and set the height and width of your slider.
POWR Slider comes with a variety of slideshow options to help you get more engagement. Under Options > Slideshow Options you can choose whether to enable Auto slide, how long each slide should be displayed for, protect your images by disabling right click, and whether to automatically Repeat the slideshow.
POWR Slider can be set to almost any size and shape, with custom fonts, colors, backgrounds, and more. In the POWR Editor, open the Design tab and make all your desired changes there. You can also add thumbnails below your Slider and automatically crop your images under Size & Cropping so they’re all the same size.
