Let’s explore the Storker slider customizations.

Layout Section Customizations
Go to Content > Layout.
The first section lets you customize the item Height to adjust the net height of all slides using a scrollbar. You can also set the Content Max Width to limit the area of the slider content.
The Alignment option works on the text content so you can easily select the best text position on the Storker Slider. You can change the Image Size for images/slides at the same time.
The additional Background Image Settings option lets you adjust the image Position, Attachment, Repeat, and Size for the Storker Slider interface.

Then comes the Limit option that lets you set the number of posts in the query.
The Include / Exclude filters let you show or hide posts based on Terms (tags, categories, post names, etc.) & Authors.
While the Include field shows only the selected items and hides every other.
The Exclude option does the opposite as it hides the selected ones and shows the rest.
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 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 for the Storker Slider.
