Image Slider Gutenberg block by Getwid is a lightweight slider solution for adding responsive slideshows in WordPress. It allows you to create image sliders with normal (automatic) and click states. The slider block is optimized to work fast and smoothly so that it never bloats your WordPress website. Swipe navigation is fully supported.
Hint: compared to other WordPress block editor addons, Getwid so far encompasses many more possibilities for building all types of sliders thanks to six different slider-focused blocks.
For the advanced Getwid Slider, check out this block.
Purpose of the Image Slider Gutenberg Block
Feel free to use this slider block for different scenarios:
- Hero / welcoming / introduction sliders since they can be featured in full-width layouts.
- Built-in image post sliders for crosslinking purposes (gives more focus to specific posts than regular underlined hyperlinked text).
- Use it as a Gutenberg image carousel block.
