When to use Image Slider

Image sliders can be used whenever you want to show many images and you are limited with space. 

Step 1: Topic

In this example, we are going to create an image slider of food images.


Before we start, please save each of these images to your computer. To do this, right-click at each image and choose "Save image as..."

Now, when we have all images prepared, we can proceed to create content.

Step 2: Creating an Image Slider

Select the New content option and choose Image Slider from the list of Content types:

Step 3: Image Slider editor

The Image Slider editor should now appear. The editor should look something like this:

In this tutorial, we'll focus on creating the Image Slider content using the above example.

Step 4: Creating content

In the section "Images" click "Add image" and upload your first image. For "Alternative text" write down the description of the image, for example, "Table with Thai Food." You should get something like this:

To add the next image, click "Add item" button. Repeat the same process for the rest. In the end, you should have 4 groups in "Images" section.

Step 5: Finishing up

Save the node/article to view your finished Image Slider. 
You should now have the same result as the example at the top of the page.
