The Marble slider is a unique and tricky slider widget that presents your posts resembling a horizontal timeline. The whole slider can be customized to perfectly fit as a featured section on your site.
Let’s explore how you can customize the slider.
Inserting the Marble Slider widget by Prime Slider
You can add the Marble slider to WordPress by opening the page you want to use it on in Elementor and then dragging and dropping the Marble 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 (Marble slider) of a website.
Layout Section Customizations
Go to Content > Layout.
Here, you can set the number of Columns between 1, 3, and 5 for the displayed items on the slider. The Height option lets you change the item height for all sliders on the display. You can adjust Vertical Spacing, Alignment, and Image Size for the Vertex slider as your need.
The Show Title, Show Category, and Show Count Switchers let you show/hide these info on the screen.
Query Section Customizations
Go to Content > Query.
This section sets the source location of data that you need to display by references like Author, Categories, Tags, and Formats. The references can be different in accordance with the source location.
Here you can easily select the Source of the displayed items as your wish that you want to see. You may select from posts, pages, forums, landing pages, portfolios, etc.
Then you can set a Post Limit to limit the number of items to be displayed. Also, you can use the Include filter to show only posts belonging to certain categories, tags, authors, etc.
The Exclude filter acts in the opposite way than the Include field.
The Date, Order By, and Order controls are here to arrange the data you want to display through Random, Title, Date, or Menu order-wise and also in ascending or descending order.
You can also see more two switchers (Ignore Sticky Posts, Only Featured Image Posts). With them turned on, no sticky posts and posts without featured images won’t be displayed with the slider.
The Query ID option lets you use a customized query over the native query provided by the Marble slider.
Slider Settings Customization
Go to Content > Slider Settings.
In this section, you will be able to see some Switchers like Auto Play, Auto play speed, pause on Hover, Slides to Scroll, Center Slide, Grab Cursor, Drag free mode, Loop, Animation Speed, and Observer.
What they do-
Autoplay switcher: If you Enable the Autoplay switcher, then your slider will slide Auto play, and you can set the Autoplay Speed as your wish.
pause on Hover: If you activate the pause on Hover button, then when someone Hovers the mouse cursor on the slider, the slider will Hold. Otherwise, your slider will slide Autoplay.

You can slide your slider manually with your mouse cursor.
