The Media Slider widget offers video, image, and text-only slide options as well as a variety of layouts. With the many settings and design options, there is also a wide range of possible configurations. This widget can be used for just about any type of content. While the possibilities are nearly endless, to name a few: Testimonials, FAQs, product presentations, a team section, and services. A slider can also be an effective tool to deliver interactive, organized content to site visitors.


  • Sound is disabled for videos as they serve as backgrounds to slides.
  • The Video autoplay functionality is dependent on specific browser restrictions as well as a device's settings (for example, if low power mode is enabled, videos may not autoplay). For more information on troubleshooting videos, see Troubleshooting Video Widget.

To add the Media Slider widget:
