How to Install and Use the Event Slider addon

April 27, 2021

Do you want to capture your viewers’ attention as well as put your events in the spotlight? Then Event Slider Addon has got you covered. The Addon converts your event calendar into a beautifully, crafted slider of events that attracts your clients’ attention.

The Slider Addon gives you various options and displays layouts from multiple slides to carousels. Below are different slider formats one can apply in the event slider;

  • Multi-Event Slider: This view of the slider allow you to show multiple events at a time and slide them continuously.
  • Micro Carousel Slider: this is a super elegant and minimal micro carousel type slider that will capture all the events in very little space.
  • Focus Slide on Hover: when you hover on a slide it comes into focus and all other slides will fade out.
  • Vertical Slider with Multiple Events: This shows more than one event in the vertical slider variation that will also auto adjust the height to fit all the event slide content when scrolling through the events.

To see the above views in action click on this link: https://addons.myeventon.com/event-slider/
