How to create WordPress slider

Fill in the fields below to adjust all necessary settings:

Slider title – type the name of your slider, it should be easily recognizable in case you’ll create several sliders for your website.
Slider alias – helps the slider to provide you with the slider shortcode. It’s name has to be unique.
Slider shortcode – you’ll insert this shortcode to the page or post where you want to place the slider.

The Slider settings also enable to set width of your slider, indicate the layers grid size, enable or disable slideshow.

In the ‘Slideshow Delay’ field you are given an option to set the time one slide stays on the screen in milliseconds. Tip: 1000ms = 1s

You can also play with slider options and use the hover to pause the slider, utilize the reverse order of slides and display their number.

After indicating the settings of the slider it’s time to start adding slides.
The process of customizing your slides is intuitive and simple. You just need to name your slide and select its background type: image or simply one color. Images can be added from your computer or from any other sources.

The background image size can be:
Cover – this means that the background image will be scaled as large as possible so the background area is fully covered with the image.
Contain – the image can be scaled to the largest size. Both width and height fit to the content area.
Percentage – the width and height of the background image can be fixed in percent.
Normal – the background image has its own width and height.

The next step is to set the position of the background image and the ‘repeat’ option, but it depends on your wish only, as you can leave these fields empty.
For demonstration purposes, we’ll use a few pictures in our slider to show you the advantages of the plugin. After setting the image options, you can get started with the Layer Settings.

Layer settings in WordPress

This feature offers you a lot of customization options. You are able to create as many layers as you need. The layers can be presented as a text, image or button, for each layer you can set:

Start Animation – how it’ll appear on a slide.
End Animation – the way how it will disappear from the slide.
Display – the time it takes for one layer to appear.
Hide – the time it takes for one layer to disappear. Note, that time is calculated from the beginning of the slide and is indicated in milliseconds.

Layer settings also enable to specify the text of the layer and its style. When you finish with the adding layers you can set their order simply by dragging and dropping them in any specific sequence.

The drag and drop functionality is one of the main benefits of MotoPress slider. It’s possible to place any layer to any place simply by dragging this element. Layer images can be easily re-sized with the help of a mouse only.

  4. Hi, I´m searching for the function to rotate an image in slider pro for example 45deg. Also with the css-code in line CSS-Classes: “transform: rotate(45deg);” nothing changed. How can I rotate images easy?
    Thanks for help!

    1. Hi Sencillo,
      You can rotate the image using Image editing software like Adobe PhotoShop, etc.
      Or you can rotate the layer using CSS. Please refer to style below:

      -ms-transform: rotate(7deg); /* IE 9 */
      -webkit-transform: rotate(7deg); /* Chrome, Safari, Opera */
      transform: rotate(7deg);
