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:

  1. In the left panel, click Widget.

  2. Click and drag the widget into your site.

Media Slider content

Add slides

To add media to the slider, click Add new slide. This creates a new slide and opens the new slide’s settings. You have the following options:

  • Add desired media. Select Click to add media to open the Media Library. Once media is added, a field will appear for Alt text. You can either type your own alt text or click the Sparkle icon to use the AI Assistant to generate alt text. Repeat for each individual piece of media in the Media Slider. The Sparkle icon will be disabled if no media is selected.


Alt text generated by the AI Assistant is in the same language as the page’s current language.

  • Text you would like to display on the slide.

  • A button. This can also be switched to a link.
