Slide Anything allows you to create a carousel/slider where the content for each slide can be anything you want – images, text, HTML, and even shortcodes. This plugin uses the Owl Carousel 2 jQuery plugin, and lets you create beautiful, touch enabled, responsive carousels and sliders.
Slide Anything provides many Owl Carousel 2 features, which include:
SLIDE ANYTHING PRO adds the following extra features:
Owl Carousel is an extremely powerful and flexible carousel/slider JQuery plugin, and it is also free to use! Unfortunately, it’s not easy to integrate Owl Carousel into a WordPress site if you are a non-developer, and requires JQuery and PHP coding skills. That is why I developed this plugin.
I use Owl Carousel a in various WordPress sites I develop, specifically where I need the additional flexibility to develop a carousel with a more complex layout, or use a layout not catered for by any existing carousel plugin product.

You will now see the
Sliders menu in your WordPress admin panel.
There are two ways to do this. If you are using the visual editor to edit a page or post, you will see a
Slide Anything Sliders button/icon in the toolbar of the editor. Click this button and a popup will be displayed containing a list of sliders that you have created. Select the title of a slider within this list and click
OK to insert the shortcode for the selected slider into your page or post content.
The other method: When you are editing your slider within the WordPress Dashboard, you will see a box with the heading
Shortcode / Preview on the right-hand side. Click the
Copy to Clipboard button within this box to copy the slider shortcode to your clipboard. Paste this copied shortcode into the page or post where you would like your slider to appear. This is also the method to use if you want to insert your slider into a text widget or another custom content type, such as a portfolio post.
By definition a
slider has a single slide displayed on-page at a time, whilst a
carousel has multiple slides displayed ‘on-page’ at a time. The
Items Displayed box, on the right-hand side of the slider edit page in the WordPress dashboard controls how many slides are displayed on-page at a time.
To define a slider, all the settings within this box must be set to
1. When these are set to values greater than
1, a carousel will be displayed, for example you may want to display a carousel with 4 slides visible on desktop devices, 3 slides visible on tablets and only 2 slides visible on mobile phones.
Slide Background box for each slide in your slider allows you to define a background image or a background color for each slide. Note that the content you add to each slide within the slide editor box for each slide is foreground content and sits on
top of the slide background – this content can be other images and textual content.
To set a slide background image, click the
Set Image button. The
Background Size setting determines if, and how the background image is stretched/shrunk to cover the slide content area and the
Background Repeat setting determines if the backgroung image should be repeated, like tiles. The
Background Color setting allows you set a color for the slide background – note that you can have both a slide background color AND a slide background image. The small background preview window to the left of these settings give you an indication on how the settings you choose will look.
Min Height setting (within the
Slider Style box), is often used in conjunction with defining slide backgrounds, as this setting controls how much of the slide background is visible if the slide contains no (foreground) content.
At the top of this box, which appears on the right-hand side when editing a slider, you can set and copy the CSS
ID for the slider. This is useful for developers who are familiar with CSS coding, and this CSS
ID can be used to create custom styles for your slider within your theme or child-theme’s style/CSS file.
Padding (pixels) settings are used to define the amount of padding space around the entire slider – top, right, bottom and left. The
Background/Border settings define the background colour for the entire slider (
Note: each slide’s background image/color will appear on top of this slider background), and also if a border should appear around the entire slider – the width, color and border radius of this border.
SLIDE STYLE settings are the style settings for each individual slide with the slider/carousel. Here you can define the minimum height each slide and also the padding space around each slide.
Adding a SLIDE ANYTHING slider using the WordPress 5.0 ‘Block Editor’ is pretty straight-forward. You can paste a Slide Anything shortcode into a ‘Paragraph Block’ or use the ‘Shortcode Block’.
