Templates Quick Summary

Slider Revolution comes with a library of premade modules called "templates" that can get you started fast.

Templates Overview

Let’s start with a look at what “template” means, in the context of Slider Revolution, from our Definitions section:

Template

A “Template” is a premade module [?] A module in Slider Revolution acts as a container for slides, which in turn act as containers for layers. Modules are created and edited with the module editor.

A "module" is a single, self contained piece of content. You can think of this as being similar to the way a post or page in regular WordPress is a self contained piece of content.

A module can represent any kind of content Slider Revolution is capable of creating, such as a slider, carousel, hero unit, navigation menu, posts display and so on.

Multiple modules can be combined to form rich content such as complete sites and landing pages.
. It has pre-configured layers [?] Layers are containers for visual, audio or layout items and are added to slides. For example, text, button, image, audio, video, group and row are all types of layers.

It is designed to be ready for use, either as is or after being modified in the module editor [?] The "Module Editor", also known as the "Visual Editor", is an interface used to create & modify modules.

It's through this interface you can add various types of layers to your modules, as well as animation and special FX.

Slider Revolution comes with several templates you can use, or alternatively you can create your own templates, thereby allowing you to easily reuse modules you have produced.

Examples of some of the module templates that come with Slider Revolution

Slider Revolution’s template library includes pre-made modules for all kinds of content, from sliders to carousels to complete websites.

When you use a template to kick-start your content creation you have everything you need already in place, with pre-placed and pre-designed layers such as text, images, videos and so on, with animations already applied.

After creating a new module using a template as a base you can modify any part of that module as you need. You can also save any module you have created, or modified, as a reusable template of your own.

Templates vs Modules from Scratch

When should you start a module from a template vs. creating a module from scratch?

As a general rule work with templates when:
