The Monster Slider widget will be a unique addition to your blogging website by arranging the blog posts in a dynamic slider window that pops open to reveal the whole content upon clicking any post. In this documentation, we’ll include instructions and pictures detailed to help you get started with it.

You can add this Prime Slider addon to WordPress by opening the page you want to use it on in Elementor and then dragging and dropping the Monster 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 holds the vital options responsible for the foundation of 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 (Monster slider) of a website. And in this regard, some handy sections in the tab will assist you a lot.
