Revolution Slider: What Makes This Plugin So Great

Responsive Layouts

The plugin is responsive ready and includes multiple slider layout options to make your life easier. Choose from fixed, custom, auto-responsive and full-screen. The Fixed and Custom layout options allow you to set your slider size using exact pixels, and with the Custom option you have additional options to vary the slider size at various screen widths. Or if you don’t want to put effort into calculating your sizes, you can use the Auto-Responsive option that will automatically create slides that match the width of your theme (you still need to set the layer container size however). The most unique layout option is Full-Screen. With this option you can create fantastic sliders that literally fill your entire screen, no matter the size of your browser or device (you can even use this option to add full screen sliders with videos for even more impact).

Easy Options

Revolution Slider makes it easy for your to create custom sliders by adding in options for just about everything. Choose your slide delay, navigation arrows, slider location (add margins), add media layers, select slide transition and more all using the drop-down menus throughout the plugin.

Media Support

Add text, links, images and videos with a few clicks of your mouse. This gives you the ability to create information rich slides that your readers and clients will be able to identify with. Plus each of these media types is added as its own layer with unique animations, timing and styles that you set using Revolution Sliders super options.

Revolution Slider Guide

First you’ll nee to get a copy of the Slider Revolution WordPress Plugin. After you’ve installed the plugin, it should add a menu item to your main WordPress dashboard. Now you can start building your sliders!

You have two options – begin from scratch, or snag a free export file from the Revolution Slider demo to help get you started (just click on the “Example Files” link on the right upper section of their site). If you choose to import a sample slider, click on the Import button, browse for your sample file and click Upload. This should add the sample slider and all of it’s settings so you can use it as a base for a new slider.

Create A New Slider

Create A New Revolution Slider

If you’re making a slider from scratch, click on the Create New Slider button. Give your slider a name and an alias. The name is to help you tell which slider is which, and the alias is used to create the slider shortcode.

Slider Settings

Revolution Slider Main Slider Settings

Next you’ll want to set your main slider settings. Select your slider layout and grid (in pixels). Fixed will remain the same size, custom gives you options to add grid sizes based on the size of the screen, auto-responsive will automatically adjust to the size of your browser to remain full-width, and full-screen will fill your entire browser screen with the slider. No matter which option you choose, you’ll need to add a Grid width & height which will determine the size of your layer container.

To the right you’ll see a bunch of slider options.

General Settings: Set your slide delay (time each slide is displayed) in milliseconds, toggle random order (aka shuffle mode), enable lazy load (to speed it up your site a bit), and enable WPML options for slider elements. You can also select an option to stop the slider after it’s completed a set number of loops and/or at a specific slide.

Google Fonts: Use this easy peasy setting to add custom Google Fonts families to your slider. Add whichever fonts you might want or need to add text layers that match the rest of your website to your slides.

Position: Under the position toggle you can edit the alignment and the margins of the slider.

Appearance: From here you can choose a slider shadow, show or hide the slide timer, add a dotted overlay, select a slider background color, add a slider border and/or upload a custom slider background image (complete with fit, repeat and positioning options).

Spinner: Use this option to choose which loading image you want to use for your slider. There are 5 spinners to choose from.

Navigation: Choose from the included navigation options for your slider. This includes options for bullets, thumbnails and navigation arrows. There are a ton of positioning options so you can quickly align and reposition your navigation elements.

Thumbnails: If you choose to display thumbnails for your slider navigation, you can use these options to edit the thumbnail count and sizing.

Mobil Touch: Revolution Slider is mobile ready, and features easy touch options. Simply enable the touch swipe option from this toggle and make selections for the velocity, min & max touches and vertical scroll blocking.

Mobile Visibility: You can choose to hide your responsive slider (or certain layers) on small browsers or devices. Use the mobile visibility options to set a minimum browser size (note: this option is only for the responsive slider layout).

Single Slide: If you create a slider with only one slide, use this toggle to create an infinite loop. This is a great feature for creating mini sliders that function as gifs for features or services.

Alternative First Slide: If for some reason you decide your first slide should no longer be first and you don’t have the time to edit the slide itself, or perhaps you want a different first slide during a special promotion,  you can use this option to quickly set your primary slide.

Troubleshooting: If you plan on using multiple slider plugins you must make sure that the JQuery No Conflict Mode is turned ON (it should be on by default, but it doesn’t hurt to double check).

Once you’ve finished making your selections you can click Create Slider.

Add Slides

Revolution Slider Edit Slides

Now you get to start adding your slides. There are two slide options – click New Slide to select an image from your media library or upload a new one to use as the background of the slide; or you can click New Transparent Slide if you don’t want your slide to have a background (if you used the Appearance option to add a custom image as your slider background you’ll want to use transparent slides so you can see your image).

Revolution Slider Slide Types

After you’ve added your slides, pick one and click the green button to Edit Slide.

Individual Slide Settings

Revolution Slider General Slide Settings

Revolution Slider is packed with options, and they just keep coming. When you click to edit a slide the first section you’ll see is to edit the general slide settings. From here you can set the slide transition from the drop-down menu (select one, a few, or choose random to use them all) and choose the length of the transition in milliseconds. Other slide options include enabling the link feature, adding a custom thumbnail, and even setting a specific time period to display the slide (again, this is great for running promotions or during the holidays).

Revolution Slider Main Background Settings

There is also a main image/background settings section. If you created a slide with a background image you can change the fit and alignment from here, change the image and even enable an animated “Ken Burns” panoramic zoom option.

Add Slide Layers

Now you can start adding your slide layers. If you’re having second thoughts about the background of your slide, you can update the image or switch to a solid color or transparent background from here as well. There are thee media formats you can add as layers to your slide.

Text Layers

Revolution Slider Text Layer

Click the “Add Layer” button to add a text layer. In the Layer General Parameters you will see a drop down for the text style. Choose a style that you want, or that is close to what you want.

In the Text/HTML box you can add whatever it is you want your layer to say. If you want to get fancy, you can add a span to the text with custom CSS. Just keep in mind that any changes you make to the fonts size will effect the responsiveness of the layer.

To align your layer you can simply drag and drop your text where you want it. Alternatively you can use the positioning boxes and X Y coordinates to position your text exactly.

If you want to make any changes to your text style click on the “Edit Style” button. This should open a window:

Revolution Slider Text Layer Style

From here you can make tweaks such as using a custom Google fonts you previously enabled, changing the font size or line-height, swapping out colors and much more. When you’re done you’ll have the option to save your changes as a new text style or to overwrite the style you were editing. In my opinion it’s better to create a new style so you always have the default options at hand.

Revolution Slider Insert Button

You can also use the text layers to add buttons to your slides. There are two ways to go about this. The first is to use the built-in option for buttons. Simply click on the “Insert Button” link just above the text/HTML field. This will open a lightbox for the preformatted button options included with Revolution slider.

Revolution Slider Text Button

The second option is to create button-like text with a link. For this option just select a style with a background color and add a link to your text (if you look at my code above I also added my own styling to remove the underline and override the color of my link).

Revolution Slider Layer Animation

In the Layer Animation box you can set your layer entrance and exit animations, easing (how the animation ends, i.e. with a bounce), and the speed of the animation (in milliseconds). Plus you can see a live example of the animation with your exact settings so you’ll have an idea of how your layer will look before you commit to an animation.

Under Layers Timing & Sorting you can edit the delay for when your layer will animate onto your slide. You can also see a visual timetable showing the layer timing in comparison to the overall time length of the slide (the sea green bar is the length of time your layer will be visible). Once you’ve added multiple layers you can also use this section to reorganize your layers by editing the position number, the entrance time, or by drag and dropping the layers into order. Plus you can use this section to lock or hide layers that you’re using (or not using, but want to save for later).

Image Layers

Revolution Slider Image Layer

Adding an image layer is easy as pie. Just click on the “Add Layer” Image” button to open the media manager. From here either select an image from your media library or upload a new image.If you image is not the size you want when you upload it you can either use the WordPress image editor to make minor cropping or resizing adjustments before inserting the image, or use the built-in Image Scale options in the Revolution slider after inserting the image.

Once inserted you’ll see options similar to the text layer. You can position the image, add entrance/exit animations, and edit the layer timing. For images there are also options to add a text description (which is used for the Layers Timing & Sorting section) and to add Alt Text (for SEO).

Video Layers

Revolution Slider Video Layer

To add a video to your slide click on the “Add Layer: Video” button. This will open a popup with three video options: YouTube, Vimeo, or HTML5. For the YouTube and Vimeo options, you just paste in the video ID and click search. After the slider finds the video you’ll be able to see a screenshot of it in the popup to confirm that the ID you entered displays the correct video. Then you can enter a custom video size or set it full-width (si it fill the slider), add auto play and auto transition.If you choose to add an HTML5 video you are able to add an image link, video URL (MP4, WEBM or OGV), custom size, autoplay and auto transition to next slide.

After adding your video layer you will be able to set the position, animations and timing just like with the text and image layers.

Save Your Slide

The most important step is to save your slide! Make sure you Save or Update your slide after making any changes. If you navigate away from your slide (even if it’s to another slide) you will lose all of your hard work. So be sure to save, save, save!

Revolution Slider Save Slide

After saving, you can move on and work on other slides or sliders.

Using Your Slider

To add your fabulous slider to any post or page use the Revolution Slider shortcode that you created earlier. This shortcode can be found by clicking on the Revolution Slider menu item in your dashboard. The shortcode should look like [rev_slider alias] based on the alias you gave the slider when you first created it.

Just paste the shortcode into your post or page content. Or if your theme supports additional slider locations you can add the shortcode there too. Some WordPress themes even include special modules for the slider. For example, the Total Multipurpose WordPress Theme includes the Revolution Slider and with the built-in page builder you can add sliders to any post or page simply by inserting a Revolution Slider module. All you have to do is add the module, select a slider from the dropdown (it will show a list of all the Revolution sliders you’ve already created), insert and then drag & drop the slider into place. Easy right?

  55. Bev says:

    Hoping Revolution Slider is the one that will work for me.

  56. RB says:

    Lazy load actually does the opposite of what you said it does, instead of pre-loading, it only loads when the image is needed. This speeds up site loading times.

    • Kyla says:

      Ah – thank you! I was thinking post-loading and typed something completely different 🙂

  57. Dave Knadler says:

    I’ve already bought it and love it. One question: is it possible to give each text layer its own link? It seems to be, looking at the options, but I haven’t been able to make it work yet.

    • AJ Clarke | WPExplorer says:

      You can surround your text by a link using HTML.

      Admin
  58. David Knadler says:

    Yeah, that’s what I’m doing now. Just wondered if I was missing something in the “layer links and advance parameters” box.

    • AJ Clarke | WPExplorer says:

      No, I think the HTML way is the way to do it. I’ve heard they are working on a big update so hopefully this is something that would be built-in.

  59. Amad zahid says:

    Hi,
    Its a nice slider to be use but One thing I get stuck that I want to put a link on every image in slider . So help me out how I put it in my code with dynamic functionality. If my client want to change image and url so he can change easily on wordpress dashboard. Note: My client can’t familiar with coding but he know how to use wordpress dashboard.

    Thanx in advance… Have a nice day 🙂

    Best regards,
    Amad zahid

    • AJ Clarke | WPExplorer says:

      Hi Amad,

      This is something you should ask the developer – they’ll be able to provide you with a much better answer. I am actually not quite sure what would be the best way of doing it for a client not familiar with code.

      Admin
  60. neeraksheeraviveki says:

    Nice article with lots of pics and explanation. My view is bit different.
    I find the slider works pretty well when composed of shades or plain colors. Use images and it falls flat. I used it in grid of 750 x 300 and below 700 px screen width, it dropped the slider.
    BTW, do you have any idea what values should go into the Layers under Mobile options? Thanks

    • AJ Clarke | WPExplorer says:

      Hi there,

      Actually Slider Revolution just updated with a lot more options. So if your screen looks different then maybe you have the most recent version yay!

      The mobile options depend on your website design. If you are using a premium theme ask the theme developer, otherwise you might need to hire someone to assist you.

      Admin
  61. Juthika says:

    Awesome slider very easy to use and looks super too. But for some reason I just cant get the video to play in the slider it keeps showing error occurred please try again later. Anyone else facing this issue??

    • AJ Clarke | WPExplorer says:

      This is a premium slider, so it includes support. I suggest you leave a comment on the slider page or contact the plugin author. I personally have not seeing this issue before.

      Admin
  62. Paulo Passic says:

    Can I set the Slider Revolution WordPress and transfer to an html site?

    • AJ Clarke | WPExplorer says:

      I’m not sure, you’ll need to ask the developer.

  63. Maani says:

    Hi it was very helpful tutorial for me. Really it’s very helpful for beginner persons who want to learn word press in better way.

  64. Bubba Stallcup says:

    This plugin can really come in handy when you need to make a sweet slider on the fly, but the only drawback is the lack of mobile support. It IS responsive, but things either move when you size the window, or completely disappear on mobile devices. In an increasingly mobile world, I think this needs to be implemented. Especially when it’s advertised as responsive and mobile friendly. Just an opinion.

    • AJ Clarke | WPExplorer says:

      Pretty sure there is an option built-in to replace the slider with a static image on mobile, personally I think this is the best solution as opposed to keeping the slider and making it responsive. You really don’t NEED a slider on a given page anyway (especially on mobile devices) so swapping out the slider for static content in my opinion is the best solution – no matter what slider plugin you are using 😉

      Unfortunately people buying/using WordPress themes still “demand” sliders, personally I don’t like them. And sliders aren’t even good for conversions anyway.

      Admin
      • ArantxaTarrero says:

        I completely agree but I can not hide the slider. Do You know what is the size for the slider to not display on mobile devices?? Thanks!

        • AJ Clarke says:

          This depends on the responsive design of your theme. Contact your theme developer or the plugin developer to see if they can assist you.

          Admin
          • Arantxa Tarrero says:

            Ok! Thank you so much!

  65. waynerodden says:

    Great article Kyla,

    I have a question! hope you don’t mind.

    I’m trying to insert a custom form that I built but am unable to add the css to the edit styles, for the life of me I cant find anything on this. With the slider accept the form css or should I hook to it externally?

    regards: Wayne

    • AJ Clarke | WPExplorer says:

      Humm..I personally would just add the CSS for your slider form via a child theme or custom CSS plugin. Have you tried this?

  66. Sherif Hashem says:

    Hello,
    I am using the slider in full wide but i can’t see it in the the small devices as smart phone?
    Thx

      You should contact the author for support on this plugin, especially if you paid for it!

      Admin
  67. Klaus says:

    anyone an idea how to add a textual layer with perspective?
    a typical example would be like the beginning of the starwars movie, telling the story of what has happened. i only need a static but perspective text, a dynamic text / markee is not necessary. any help or ideas welcome.
    best regards, Klaus

  68. jarbotusmc says:

    is it possible to add a mouseover dark opacity change to certain areas to a slide area, essentially i want to animate this effect as you scroll over areas.

    dropbox.com/s/6121nqnvee6vafv/SIRT365%20Lifestyle.png

    • AJ Clarke says:

      I think you can do that with custom CSS just using the opacity tag.

      Admin
  69. suitfairy& says:

    wonder why sometimes the slider does not appear on my home page until I reload the whole page? makes no sense

    • AJ Clarke says:

      Might be a cache or CDN issue. If you are using either try disabling and testing.

    Having some trouble with features in the revolution slider. who do I contact? Or can someone send me an email please?

      Contact the plugin developer. If you purchased the plugin you should be able to receive support, simply leave a comment on the plugin page.

  71. scott says:

    Thanks for all this great info – It may be super simple but for some reason I just can’t seem to figure out how to use the link functionality of a slide. I would like to be able to have someone click on a slide and have a URL open in a new window.

    • AJ Clarke says:

      I checked out your site and it looks like you’ve got links in your slider, so I’m assuming you figured it out 😉

      Admin
  72. scotthenshaw says:

    Yes, thank you very much for the follow up. The support team Themepunch was really and I mean really helpful. They had me add:
    .slidelink {z-index:9999!important;}
    .yt-video {z-index:999999!important;}

    to the Stylesheet css.

    The .slidelink corrected the problem perfectly but created a smaller problem, (Which the .yt-video fixes) of making the whole slide a link which prevents a video to work. Adding the ht-video code and modifying the class for video from within the admin panel to yt-video works like a charm.

    Scott

    • AJ Clarke says:

      Awesome, I’m glad you received good support from them and things are working well now. I’ve purchased Slider Revolution about 10 times already (developer version) and they have always been quick at fixing bugs and responding!

      Good luck with your site!

      Admin
  73. KB92 says:

    I recently started using the revolution slider. It looks great on the website version, but so small and very hard to read on the mobile version, and we want to keep it on the mobile version. How do we set a bigger size for the mobile version?

    • AJ Clarke says:

      Hi Kara,

      If the slider is full-width on your mobile device you can’t make it any bigger (besides flipping your phone over to portrait mode). I mean you can’t make the slider pop outside of the phone, although that would be bad-a*s 😉

      The best thing to do in (my opinion) is to hide the slider for mobile devices and display a static image as an alternative. I think there might be a way to do this already built-in. Sliders aren’t too good for mobile devices anyway and a static image should convert much better. Actually, sliders aren’t really good for conversions ever, they just look pretty.

    I did purchase Slider Revolution Responsive WordPress Plugin from Envato and I tried to uploaded using WordPress and it say that there is no plugin so I tried also to upload it using FTP and when I go to the plugin section to activate it, it is not there

      Extract the zip and upload only the file called revslider.zip. The purchased product includes documentation and other important files inside the main download.

    How do you create a slide with a video background? What elements are involved in making that happen. I can’t find a step by step tutorial anywhere.

      Hi Earl, if you purchased the product seek support from the developer. Leave a comment on the plugin page or click on the support tab on the plugin page to see how they handle support.

    Yes, Earl is correct. Envato has, based on my experience, a brilliant support staff and are extremely helpful. I am just a novice user but do not believe that the slider has the ability to show a video in the background, (Like what you would see with PayPal’s new front page look). You can have a solid image show as a Ken Burns effect so long as the image is physically larger than the size of the slide. Of course you can also have a YouTube video window placed in the slider. But, for a video to play in the background I suspect your are looking for something more powerful and robust than a slider like this.

    My bad, Earl…. I meant AJ Clarke was correct 🙁 more coffee please!
