The Pacific Slider widget will be a special 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.
This documentation will help you get started with Pacific Slider.
Inserting the Pacific slider widget by Prime Slider
You can add the Pacific slider addon to WordPress by opening the page you want to use it on in Elementor and then dragging and dropping the Pacific slider widget into that page. Please note that you need both Elementor and Prime Slider installed before you can use this widget.
Content Tab Introduction
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 (pacific slider) of a website.
Let’s break it down!
Introduction To Layout Section Customizations
Go to Content > Layout
Here, the first option you will find is the Style control (Style1, style2) which lets you switch between two layout styles for the Pacific slider widget.
Right below, you can set the number of Columns for the slider displayed items, Item Gap, Item Height, and Alignment as your need. Also, you can customize all image dimensions from the Image Size option at the bottom.
Query Section Customizations
Go to Content > Query.
This section works for setting 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 set your post limit as your wish.
A. Source ➤ select data location( as posts, pages, etc.)
B. Limit the number of items in the query.
C. Use the Include/Exclude filters to show/hide specific posts by Terms (Tags, Categories, etc.) or Authors.
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 with ascending or descending order.
The two switchers (Ignore Sticky Posts, Only Featured Image Posts) let you avoid sticky posts and posts without feature images from the display. Here, you can also set the Query ID that gives your Query a custom unique id to allow server-side filtering.
Additional Section Customizations
Go to Content > Additional.
In this section, you are given a bunch of switchers to show/hide the Title, Category, and Author info from the Pacific slider interface. You can also set a custom Separator icon from the field at the bottom.
The Modal Show Title, Modal Show Text, and Text Limit fields let you customize the content on the modal window. When you click the Read More button on a slider item, it will open in a lightbox/modal view where you will see the Modal Title and text.
Below, you will find more switchers such as the Date, Show Read More, and pagination. You can edit the Readmore Text by the field close to the bottom.
Carousel Settings Customization
Go to Content > Carousel Settings.
In this section, you will be able to see a bunch of Switchers like Auto Play, Auto Play speed, Slides to Scroll, Center Slide, Grab Cursor, Loop, Animation Speed, and Observer.
What they do-
Autoplay switcher: If you Enable the Autoplay switcher button, your slider will slide into Autoplay mode, and you can set the Autoplay Speed as your wish.
Slides to scroll: It represents how many slides will slide at once.
Center Slide: If you enable the Switcher option, then your Active slider will show the center (depending on your widget style).
Grab The Cursor: Your mouse pointer icon will be changed into a grab cursor. Visitors can slide your slider manually with your mouse cursor.
Loop: When you activate the Loop switcher button, your slider will loop at a certain time interval. You also set up the loop animation speed here.
Observer: If you enable the option then you are able to use the slider/carousel in any hidden places (such as in tabs, Accordion, etc).
Style tab for customizing widget interface appearance
