HTML Slider

The HTML Slider Element is a tool that allows you to create a slider, or gallery, that can contain images, videos, or text.  You can include links or Call To Action buttons, create multiple slides, and set the slider to transition automatically. A clickable HTML web link can be assigned to each image within the HTML Slider. Each assigned link can redirect visitors to a chosen page within your website. No HTML knowledge is necessary; Aurora does the markup for you. Your slider can be an up-and-running gallery in a few minutes.

Before you drag the HTML Slider Content Element and drop it into a Content Area, you must have your images uploaded to the File Manager. To create an HTML Slider, navigate to the page within your website where you want the slider to appear.

Drag the HTML Slider Content Element into the Content Area of your choice. The HTML Slider window will open.

The addition of an HTML slider can greatly improve the look and feel of a website.


HTML Slider Tab

Images are placed into the slider individually using the Rich Text Editor.

Browse for your image by clicking on the Browse icon:

The Browse Image icon will take you to the File Manager. Click on the image to make your selection, select a size and click insert.

To add an additional image to your slider, click Add New Slide and repeat the directions above.
