The type of layer [?]
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.
Layers are added to slides via the module editor. you’ll most commonly use are media layers, those that add text, graphics, video and audio content to your modules [?] 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.. These layers are the most fundamental building blocks of your designs.
The first seven options on the Add Layer dropdown are all media layer types.
Let’s briefly summarise what each one is.
Add headlines or paragraph-like blocks of text content.
Add JPG, PNG or GIF images. Use this to add photos and illustrations.
Interactive strip of text to which you can apply custom styling or choose from a selection of premade styles. Use this to create objects clearly meant to be clicked on, with changes in their appearances when hovering over them with the mouse.
Create resizeable, rectangular shapes. Use to create things like backgrounds behind other elements, or overlays to tint photographs.
Embed videos either uploaded to your own site, or from third parties YouTube or Vimeo.
Embed audio files that have been uploaded to your own site.
