1. How do I add the slider to my site?

You can add your slider by shortcode or via the widget control panel or PHP shortcode.

2. Where can I reach the documentation?

3. What should I do when I see blank area where the slider should show or the slider doesn’t work?

It means that there is a JavaScript error on your site which blocks other scripts (for example Smart Slider’s scripts). You can open up the browser debugger window with F12 button and check the console if it shows error or not. If you solve these errors Smart Slider should work fine.

Usual problem is that you have the latest WordPress version, but your theme loads very old jQuery version (1.7 or older) and the WordPress admin bar throws a JavaScript error. In this case, you have to remove the old jQuery from your theme’s functions.php.

If you are unable to solve these problems, feel free to contact us!

4. What should I do when I experience any problem?

Contact us!

6. Can I customize the fonts of the slider?

Yes you can customize everything for every state. (hover, active, opened) The slider comes with Google Web Font support, allowing you to pick from over a dozen font families. To make using Google Fonts even easier, we have created a font manager interface that simplifies the process and preview it.

7. Can I show multiple instances of slider on one page?

Yes you can use multiple slider widgets and slider shortcodes.

8. How to include a slider in a post or a page?

[smartslider3 slider=Here comes the slider id]

9. How to include a slider into header.php or other PHP files?

<?php echo do_shortcode('[smartslider3 slider=Here comes the slider id]'); ?>

10. Does Smart Slider support sites with SSL?

Of course! Smart Slider use protocol relative urls which works fine on http:// and on https:// too.

Wow - what a great slider. I have been using this slider for about an hour and can say I am very impressed. The help videos are well made and provide good ideas. The Slider features are terrific. As far as a free slider goes, this one is the best I have used. It is packed with templates and easy to use functions. The paid version has more templates and features, but for standard to mid level sliders adding a bit of flair is easy. You cant go wrong. Well done. I'd recommend giving this a go any day.

Had client ask for thumbnails in slider, automatically adds to divi, LOVE IT. WILL USE MULTIPLE TIMES better than basic gallery view
October 14, 2019
We are extremely satisfied with the plugin. We have the paid version and not only is the best solution for sliders but their support is phenomenal. We had a problem with the slider that was about wcag and the icons that were loading and couldnt pass the check. He fixed the problem in around 3 hours and made a new version that was working.

I am about to give a 1-Star-rating to a good tool. I am fed up with watching several tutorials, compose a couple of slides to only find out after hours that an abolutely basic feature has been intentionally left out to make people buy the pro-Version. In the case of the smart slider, it is the limited possibilities to position your arrows and points. Also, the tool is designed such, that it is quite difficult to do your own CSS workarounds. While you can waste all the time of your life to make your sildes, you will be stuck with your silder. I could live with that if the plugin marketeers would tell the users BEFOREHAND what DOES NOT WORK in the free version. In my case, they wouldn't even give me a hint how to get a handle on the elementsin question (arrow symbols) to do the CSS by myself.
