Why Should I Use the Image Accordion & Image Hotspot Widgets?
If you love everything about Elementor (at least, you are using it to build one or multiple websites), you already know how widgets work and what customization options to expect. Stratum is fully integrated with the page builder meaning it will not seem something odd or third-party. Moreover, the addon works awesome with EVERY Elementor theme or plugin. It will not slow down your website speed because of its clean code.
But most importantly, you will not see any close alternative to the Image Hotspot and the Image Accordion in the collection of Elementor widgets – neither in Elementor Pro, nor in the Basic plugin set. Both widgets are unique and provide you with all tools needed to create interactive content fast and easily.
Stratum Image Accordion Widget: General Features & Settings
The Image Accordion widget is a perfect solution when you need to fit a certain number of images in a beautiful accordion style. In particular, this widget works well for:
- Compact-style image galleries;
- Banners with multiple-image display;
- Another type of image sliders;
- And more.
When you start with general customizing, you typically fill in the accordion with all types of content (any number of images & text), decide on their placement/position, and finally, add such content as buttons and links:
In the display tab, you can make changes in the layout of the overall accordion. Alter the direction, the accordion-style, the image height, the content vertical position, and the content alignment. This is how it looks in progress:
The image tab contains overlay color for both default and the cover effect. There is also CSS filters for more advanced settings:
Now you can style up the content of your accordion. This includes advanced styling options for each element: icon, title, and description. The Content styling lets you change the colors of your content for a default mode and when hovered, resize, add border radius and shadows, as well as set up margins & padding:
Stratum Image Hotspot Widget: General Features & Settings
The Stratum Hotspot widget may seem like a one-way solution for a specific website or niche. But in fact, there are so many ways a hotspot image can be handy at. Particularly, a hotspot image works great for:
- Maps of any kind (click to see the location name or a certain description);
- Additional information about a certain item;
- Step-by-step guides (for a device, item, or any kind);
- Price tags for different products;
- Use hotspots for learning platforms (click the image to see the explanation/translation/description);
- … and many more.
Your customization of the image hotspot starts with filling in the following content:
There you can choose a different image size out of several choices and turn on/off the image animation.
Now you can change the content of each hotspot, in particular, you’ll see 3 tabs for different customization content.
In the content area, you can alter the icon style from hundreds of different options (you can search by the word).
The position area lets you set up the exact placement of the icon.
Finally, in the tooltip area, you may add title & description for your tooltip, as well as set up its placement, theme, animation, interactivity, etc.
The styling options are available for a hotspot only. This is where you can enlarge or reduce their size, change the point spacing & opacity, and also, change the hotspot color and background.
