The Paradox Slider widget is a post-displaying slider widget developed by the Ultimate Post Kit plugin. It helps you create an awesome blog page where you can arrange a large number of posts into this slider layout.
Let’s see how it works!
Find the Paradox Slider widget from the widget menu in the Elementor page editor and drag it inside your webpage.
The Content tab holds the base settings for the widget and lays the foundation of the layout of the final content. It’s divided into four parts for the Paradox Slider widget for Elementor.
Go to Content> Layout
Adjust post height, max-width of the content area, change alignment, & image size of the slider block from this section.
Right below, you will see a bunch of switches that turn on/off certain items on the WordPress slider. The previous widgets have their own separate section called Additional that holds all these switchers.
Go to Content> Query
Here, you need to define the number of posts shown on the display by the Item Limit option. The source can be selected from posts, pages, and landing pages. You can show categories, tags, as well as set the order of the posts on the slider for blogs.
Go to Content> Navigation
Paradox Slider widget has a separate section to display its navigation. It can either be arrows or dots, or both combined. You can select any of them from the options. Let’s go with the Arrows and Dots combination. By the way, arrows have more than 21 icon styles.
Go to Content> Carousel settings
Lastly, you will get the settings for the carousel animation. You can set it to Autoplay mode and put a time value for the autoplay speed. There is a switcher that makes the default cursor into a Grab Cursor whenever you hover over the carousel.
The style tab allows you to change or customize the appearance of the Paradox Slider. The options include color settings, borders, paddings, etc.
