First Steps

1.4 Possible Caveeats.

If you have default PHP / Nginx settings, you might experience issues with slider import. By default max file size for upload is 2M. To update it you need to:

  • PHP

    Update php.ini

    upload_max_filesize = 100M
    post_max_size = 100M

    Update /etc/nginx/sites-available/yoursite.conf

    client_max_body_size 100m;

2. Create a new Slider

2.1 From the plugin's main admin page, select "Create New Slider".
2.2 Enter a Slider Title (1) and Alias (2), and click "Save".
  • Quick Note:
    Before saving, you can select several of the slider's settings from this page. But choosing these settings are not required to officially create a new slider, as they can be adjusted afterward.
  • Alias Naming:
    The slider's "Title" can be anything, but the "Alias" should not have any special characters or spaces (but dashes and underscores are ok).
2.3 You'll now be redirected to the plugin's main admin page where you'll see your new slider listed.
3.1 From the plugin's main admin page, select "Add Template Slider".
3.2 Select a demo from the slide-in screen.
3.3 And then from the popup modal, import the corresponding zip file.

In your original download source folder, you’ll find a folder named “example-zips”.  Click the “browse” button (#1), and locate the zip file listed in the green box from your computer (i.e. “”).  Then click “Import Template Slider” (#2).

3.4 You'll then see the template slider listed in the plugin's main admin page.
