Add Custom Slider / Revslider

  • Creator
  • #15423

    Hi Jason,

    This dev article ( provides a great starting point to adding a custom slider.

    Do you have plans to extend the documentation to include adding a custom slider plugin such as ‘revslider’, or has this question been covered already?

    Thank you,
    – Michael

    Hello Michael,

    This tutorial serves as a general guide to adding any kind of slider, but it would take some know how of exactly what you’re outputting. In other words, I’m giving you the basic PHP template, but you need a strong understanding of what CSS, HTML, and javascript are involved in the process. So, it would make more sense to follow this guide in creating a slider type if you had some sort of jQuery slider plugin or something static.

    However, you’re referencing a WordPress plugin that is already fully functional with a builder and all. So, if you were going to use this plugin, it wouldn’t really make sense for it to be added to our slider types. It would be completely its own thing you’re utilizing.

    If you wanted to use something like this, you’d have to incorporate it into your site using whatever shortcode it provides. So, for example, with that shortcode, you could incorporate your slider from that plugin into a page, a post, or even a content or columns element of our Layout Builder.


    Thanks for your quick reply Jason.

    Yet again, was just approaching this from the wrong angle. Using the shortcode with the Layout Builder sounds like the way to go about it.
