The Astoria Slider is a wonderful slider widget for decorating your hero page with the perfect and elegant-looking slide. Equipped with social share buttons, the slider can easily catch your visitor’s eyes, enough to boost the first impression to the maximum.
Let’s explore the controls now.
Inserting the Astoria Slider widget
You can add this Astoria Slider addon to WordPress by opening the page you want to use it on in Elementor and then dragging and dropping the Astoria slider widget into that page. Please note that you need both Elementor and Prime Slider installed before you can use this widget.
Work With The Content Tab
Layout Section Customizations
Go to Content > Layout.
In this section, you can adjust the Height and Content Width of the slides. Note that too little height can collapse some of the content in the slider so be careful to adjust it.
The Alignment option works on the text content so you can easily select the best text position on the Astoria Slider.
The bunch of switchers below are Show Title, Show Sub Title, Show Text, ReadMore Type, Show Social Link, Show Scroll Button, and Show Arrows. Turning the switchers on will make those elements/features visible on the display and vice-versa.
Then below, you can change the Image Size for all images on the Astoria slider. Additionally, you can customize the Background Image Settings option (Image Position, Attachment, Repeat, and Size) to further reposition the background images.
Sliders Section Customizations
Go to Content > Sliders
In this section, you can easily add an Escape slider item by clicking Add Item button. Otherwise, you can easily increase your Item by clicking the Duplicate Sign, and you can also decrease your item by clicking the cross sign.
Clicking on an item box, you will see two subsections (Content and Optional). In content mode, you can change the Title and Read More Text, Button Link, and Astoria slider item Image.
In the Optional subsection, you are able to change the Sub Title, add a Title Link, and customize the slide description Text. All Astoria slider items will offer the stated options for customization.
Customizations of Social Link Section

Similar to the Sliders section, the Social links in the Astoria Slider also come in boxes. You can duplicate current ones, reduce them by clicking the cross icon, or add new ones with the Add Item button.
Clicking on a social link box, you can change its Title, select the target social link, and a custom Icon to symbolize the social link.
Work With The Scroll Down Section

You may have noticed a Scroll Down button just below the social links on the Astoria Slider.
In this section, you can change the Scroll Duration and Offset value to adjust the transition time for the scroll-down button to act.
You can change the Button Text and in the Section ID field, you can insert a CSS ID of the target section within the current page where you are using the Astoria Slider.
