How To Use The Featured Images Slider Element

The Featured Images Slider Element allows you to place featured images (either single, or if multiple, in a slider) anywhere in a Content Layout Section, in any Layout.

When you go to add an Element in a Content Layout Section, the Element dialog opens in a new tab called Layout Elements. This is where you will find the Featured Images Slider Element. These dynamic Elements can only be placed once into a Layout, with the exception of the Pagination Element, which can be placed twice. You can also use the full range of Design Elements when building your Layout.

The Featured Images Slider Element can be placed anywhere in you Layout Section, and will dynamically pull any connected Featured Image, or images, into the page, based on the settings in the Element, and the Conditions set in the Layout. For example, you might choose a certain size and hover effect in the Featured Images Slider Element, and set the condition for the Layout only to display on Single Posts.
