The Custom Slider widget is one of the most popular and pro widgets on the Prime Slider. The widget is best for web creators who want to have fully custom sliders on their web pages.
This documentation will help you get started with the Custom Slider widget.
Inserting the Custom Slider widget
You can add the Custom slider to WordPress by opening the page you want to use it on in Elementor and then dragging and dropping the Custom Slider widget into that page. Please note that you need both Elementor and Prime Slider installed before you can use this widget.
Introduction of Content Tab
The content tab is the foundation for your widget, much like a frame of a house. Using the content tab, you’ll be able to make a layout of a particular part (Custom slider) of a website.
Layout Section Customizations
Go to Content > Layout
After dropping the widget, you will notice that there is no slider image displayed over the canvas. That’s because you need to choose a slider template created in the Templates dashboard, and you need to use the template to design the slider.
With the Minimum Height scrollbar, you can set the slider height to your demand. You are given some switchers such as Show Arrows, Show Dots, Show Social Icon, and Scroll to Section. Enabling those buttons will show the associated elements on display.
When you activate the Scroll to Section switcher button, you should Enter the Section ID where the display will take you after clicking the scroll icon. Here, you also change the Scroll to Section Icon as your need.
Sliders Section Customizations
Go to Content > Sliders
In this section, you can easily add custom slider Items by clicking Add Item button. Otherwise, you can quickly increase your Item by clicking the Duplicate Sign and decrease/remove your item by clicking the Cross sign.
Here, you can change the Title of the slide and then Select Template that you have previously created. In the same process, you can change the other slides.
