How To Create
A Great Carousel Slider Without Any Code

A carousel can be a great way to show off content in a super engaging way. Thanks to Slider Revolution, you don’t need any fancy tools or expert coding skills to create one.


Update the slide backgrounds so they align with your brand colors or fit your visual theme. Change colors, add carousel images and videos, or even apply special effects.


Depending on the slider type, you might want to upload an image gallery, embed YouTube videos, pull in recent content from your site, or mix-and-match imagery. You can also apply custom styles to your images — change the size, placement, and transition effects, for instance.


When designing carousels, you can place your text on top of your imagery. You can also add a carousel caption element. Regardless of where your text goes, replace the text in your template. Then use the editor to make stylistic edits to the font, colors, weight, and more while you’re at it.


Update the call-to-action buttons in your carousel so that they look great and are easy for visitors to interact with. Then add custom links to a different slide, section, or single page.


While you want to ensure that your carousel slides easily, you don’t have to stick to a basic slide or fade transition. Our transition effects give you different ways to animate the slider while also experimenting with dimensional space.

Carousel Controls

Navigation and pagination needs to be added to every carousel you build. Start by disabling the auto-play. Then give your user all the controls they need — including previous and next controls, pagination, and touch-enabled swiping.


When customizing elements in our templates, it’s a good idea to check that they’re still responsive. We give you all the tools you need to ensure that there’s appropriately sized content in your carousel regardless of how big your users’ screens are.


Use the Slider Revolution shortcode to embed your new carousel on a web page. You can also use the Slider Revolution widget available in your page builder to add it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the more common questions we get about our WordPress carousel sliders:

Slider Revolution is the best-selling WordPress plugin for creating sliders, carousels, hero images, one-page websites, and more.

Website carousels have a ton of versatility. You can use your a carousel slide to showcase:

  • Images
  • Videos
  • WordPress blog posts
  • News stories
  • WooCommerce products
  • Social media posts
  • Portfolio works
  • Events
  • Team bios
  • Customer testimonials
  • And more
You can also use them in various places on your site — from the hero section down to the footer area.

If you want to design a truly engaging carousel experience, you won’t be able to create it with most WordPress carousel plugins. That’s because flat, auto-playing carousels are outdated and don’t appeal all that well to the modern user.

Slider Revolution, on the other hand, gives you the ability to design a carousel slider that looks like a developer spent months working to code it from-scratch. But, for you, it will take a couple hours and cost a mere fraction of what that developer’s fee would be.

You have two options.

The first is to use the provided shortcode to embed the carousel into any section on your website. The second is to look for the Slider Revolution widget in your page builder. Then select the carousel design you just created from the dropdown list.

Your Slider Revolution plugin license includes support. So if our manual, FAQs, or video tutorials don’t answer your question, you can reach out to us at any time of day for assistance by submitting a ticket.

Although sliders and carousels tend to contain the same type of content and can be used for similar purposes, their structures are different. A slider is typically full-screen, so your visitors will only see one slide at a time.

A carousel, on the other hand, has multiple visible slides. Carousel slide dimensions also vary. It depends on what the purpose of the carousel is. For example, a news carousel tends to be smaller so that it seamlessly fits with the surrounding news highlights. You’d want a portfolio slideshow, however, to take up more space.

Both sliders and carousels are effective ways to present a bunch of content in a set space on a web page. However, carousels are particularly good at building anticipation as the next item and previous item in the slider remain visible.

Slider Revolution doesn’t have any limits on the number of slides you can add. It all depends on what the purpose of your carousel element is.

For instance, if you’re using it to promote upcoming events, the first slide will contain information on your next event. If your goal is to get as many people to sign up for upcoming events, you probably don’t want to add too many slides to the carousel.

You might also consider creating multiple carousels for different types of events, content, or categories. That way, users don’t feel like they’re stuck in a never-ending loop of content. Instead, they can focus on the carousel items that are most relevant to what they’re searching for.

Yes. All of our templates are built to be responsive. This is especially important for carousels as you want website visitors to be able to interact with a horizontally-rotating section of content easily on their mobile devices.

Our editor comes with tools that will help you to ensure that all of the content placed inside your carousel is responsive. Plus, our navigation editor includes optional controls for touchscreen devices.

There’s no additional cost to use Slider Revolution’s templates. They’re all included in the plugin fee.
