1. Как добавить слайдер на мой сайт?

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

2. Где я могу найти документацию?

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!

5. Is Smart Slider 3 is totally responsive?

Smart Slider 3 is 100% responsive with each items, so it will fit perfectly into your page, regardless of the size of your desktop screen or device.

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.


Impressive and amazing

I tried 4 or 5 different plugins to get a ‘real’ slider working in the confines of WP Bakery before finding this one and, holy moly, this is fantastic!

Incredibly flexible and customizable with a beautiful interface. I was at my wit’s end trying to find a free plugin that could provide layers of images and text over a background color and this plugin does just what I need and much more. It’s impressive just how much you can customize.

I was at a frustration point where I didn’t want to look at my Mac anymore, but now that I found Smart Slider, I’m loving playing around with its settings. I popped the shortcode into WPBakery and the slider appears perfectly. No problems.

Great, GREAT job to the developers!

The Best one I know

Great slider plugin, very efficient, good for responsiveness, good for SEO, good for performances. I DO recommend this plugin !
