During the process of building or customizing a 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., you might like to browse the range of Slider Revolution addons to consider how you can incorporate them into your design.
There are three ways we suggest for browsing addons.
The first is via this showcase of addons: https://www.sliderrevolution.com/expand-possibilities-with-addons/
The second is to explore our templates [?]
A "Template" is a premade module. It has pre-configured layers already in place.
It is designed to be ready for use, either as is or after being modified in the module editor.
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. and find something with visual effects you like: https://www.sliderrevolution.com/examples/
Then in Slider Revolution, create a module from that template and check its requirements to see which addons it uses. For example, below we can see the Minimal Typography Website template uses the Advanced Transitions addon:
And the third way to browse is to go to the Slider Revolution plugin dashboard, then click the AddOns button and look through the list of addons shown:
There are two ways to install addons.
The first is if you create a module from a template that requires certain addons – those addons will be installed as part of the module creation process.
The second is to directly select and install an addon manually. To do so, go to the Slider Revolution plugin dashboard, then click the AddOns button:
The available addons will appear in a dialog box. Look for the addon you want to install, and click its icon to display installation details in the right sidebar:
In the installation details sidebar, click the Install Add-On button.
The add-on will be automatically downloaded and installed.
Once this process has completed, click the Activate Add–On button in the right side bar of the dialog box.
Once activated, the add-on thumbnail will change from black & white to color to let you know it’s enabled and ready for use.
Once an addon is installed it needs to be enabled for any module you wish to use it in.
Open a module in the module editor [?]
The "Module Editor" is the tool used to create & modify modules.
Through this visual, drag & drop, no-code interface you can add various types of layers, animation and special FX to your modules, as well as managing slides and configuring options., then go to the Module General Options tab in the right sidebar, and click Addons:
In the Addons window that appears, click the icon for the addon you want to use, then click the blue Enable Add-On button on the right:
You can then close Addons window.
Once enabled, the way to use addons can vary quite substantially from one addon to the next. Most commonly, new items and options will be added to the module editor interface, either in the right sidebar or in the top menu.
For precise instructions, check the Using Addons section of this manual for a guide on the addon you wish to use.
