Is It A Bird? No. Is It A Slider? Yes!

I mentioned just recently that I've lost count of the number of sliders available for RapidWeaver. So here's the Xth for your list. X Slider from RWExtras – a slider with a difference. Let's Twist again!

X Slider is a simple slider that is childs' play to set up. It is one of the few sliders that let's your visitors view the slides at their own pace and you can drop just about anything into it.

When you click the blue + button to add a child stack, an X Slide Item is added to X Slider and you are presented with three options. You can add a Drag And Dropped Image, a Linked Image, or a Blank Stack. When you choose either a Dragged, or a Linked Image, you can set the path to your image, add an Alt text for SEO purposes and set a link. When you choose Blank Stack, a stack container appears on the page and the settings panel expands to offer further options.

You can now define a Blank Fill to set the colour of the X Slider background and set the Blank Padding – the padding around your content. Next you'll find options to set the Font Sizes for Small Font; Mobile Font; Tablet Font; Laptop Font and Desktop Font. Once again, you also have the option to set a link.

X Slider's main settings panel gives you the options to set the stack's height for the above listed devices. You will also find the settings for X Slider's Padding and the Image Radius. There are no further settings.

When you take a look at your preview, you'll find a sliding panel that is the width of the container you placed it in and the height that you just defined. You can swipe X Slider to slide along its contents, or you can use the slider below the stack.

X Slider will accept images of various sizes and shapes and the fact that you can add any content you please, including video or even contact forms, makes this just one more valuable addition to your RW toolbox.
