The SR7 Data Load Method is a user-friendly feature that determines how Slider Revolution loads content like images and videos for your sliders [?] A slider is a type of module that contains multiple slides. You can only see one slide at a time, a distinguishing features that makes sliders different from carousels.

. By choosing the correct method, you can ensure efficient loading and a smooth user experience.

Smart Loading

The Smart Loading method dynamically loads only the visible slider content. As users navigate, additional assets load as needed. This optimizes performance by reducing initial load times and only using resources when necessary, making your website faster.

The Preloading method loads all slider assets before displaying the slider. This ensures that once the slider appears, all content is ready, providing seamless playback. It can result in longer initial load times but guarantees no delays during slider navigation.

On-Demand Loading

The On-Demand Loading method fetches assets only when they’re about to be displayed. This reduces initial load time, as only the first slide’s assets load upfront. There might be slight delays when moving between slides. However, it benefits websites with extensive sliders or users with slower internet connections.
