When you view a published 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. in your website you will also see elements of your WordPress theme by default.
For example, in the image below we have published the Bubble Morph Hero module, but you can also see the site title, navigation menu, page title and so on:
If you only want your Slider Revolution modules to appear, such as when you are creating a one page site or a landing page, you can use the in-built Blank Template.
In the sidebar of the post or page you are working on, look for the Slider Revolution panel and toggle the Blank Template switch to ‘On’.
This will hide all the elements of your theme, allowing you to display just your modules. For example, the following image shows the same example from above with the Blank Template applied:
Additionally, if you know in advance you are going to need a blank page when you are creating a module from a template [?]
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., you can toggle the Create Blank Page option in the template information panel during the creation process:
With this option active, as part of the template-based module creation process Slider Revolution will:
- Create a page for you.
- Activate the blank page option for it.
- Add your new template-based modules to that page.
After the modules have been created from your selected template a dialogue box will appear giving you a link to edit the new page, as well as a Visit Page button to view it:
If you are creating multiple modules at once, such as when you use a Slider Revolution complete website template package, all the modules will be added to your new page in the correct order.
The example below shows an automatically created page with correctly ordered modules from the Storyblocks website template:
Good work, you’ve now finished learning all the basics of Slider Revolution in our Getting Started section of the manual.
Coming Up Next: Intermediate Editing
In the next major section of the manual we’re moving from basic to intermediate editing, so you can do more to leverage Slider Revolution’s library of ready-to-go content.
You’ll start by learning some extra module editing techniques, you’ll then start sinking your teeth into how to work with animation in Slider Revolution, and finally you’ll get a foundation in how to make sure modules are responsive, i.e. suitable for all device sizes.
