Avada Fusion Slider For Beginners

Avada Fusion Slider For Beginners

02.Aug.2021

if you want to use the avada fusion
slider for your
wordpress website using the avada theme
there's a little bit of a learning curve
it kind of takes some getting used to so
i'm going to show you how it's all set
up kind of give you an overview of
things so that way
when you go to build a slider for your
website you can do it quickly and easily
so that this slider right here well
you can't really tell it's a slider
unless we reload the page and then
you'll see this
text animated kind of slides up there's
a button that links off to the contact
page
and then we could add more slides here
if we wanted to
i like to just use this hero image where
there's an image with text and a button
tends to load a lot faster if there's
not you know three or four or five
slides in there but
if you want to add more slides you
definitely can so
the first way to edit the slider if
there's already a slider on the page
i'll just show you this real quick
i'm just going to open up to edit that
page in a new tab
and you'll see this first block here
says avada slider
so from here you can edit the slider you
can edit the slides you can remove the
slider
and to feature a slider on this page you
scroll down to the very bottom where it
says sliders
and then you can choose if you want to
use the avada slider
and then you can choose which slider
that you want to use here
so once you've selected the slider then
you click
update and then that's going to actually
add the slider
to this page which of course we already
have the slider added to this page
so it's not really going to do anything
but that's how you'll actually add it to
a page once you have it set up
now in the back end of your
wordpress website if you have avada
installed
when you hover over a bottle you'll see
the option for sliders
when you click that it'll bring you to
the sliders page
where then you can see all the different
sliders that are set up
so this one is these the homepage slider
so we click on that
well let's just go back real quick
to add a new one you just enter the
information here so say we wanted to
call this
home page slider we can set up a
short code enter the size all the
different information you can
these each have a description here so
it'll tell you what each of these is for
and then you can click add slider and
that will add the new slider here in the
list and then you can click edit
and this is just to edit the slider
settings themselves
so say so this is set to 400 pixels tall
so that's the height right here which i
like to use
400 maybe 500 max because we don't want
it to take up the whole
top of the page we want people to be
able to see this text here
this first bit of information that
people can see is really important
without having to scroll down so we
don't want it to be
you know all the way down the page here
where then all they see is the slider
and they don't see any of this other
information
so you can change that here uh it's set
to be 100 width which we want
you can have it parallax so that means
the image stays
in position when you scroll down there's
all sorts of different
like the slideshow speed so that's how
quickly it goes through the different
slides
all sorts of different uh stuff that you
can edit here
and then once you have your slider set
up you'll actually need to add slides
and so you do that by hovering over
sliders here and then clicking
slides so this second option here
and then we'll see the actual slides
you'll notice there's more slides than
there are sliders
and that's because you can have multiple
slides on each slider
so here's the home page slide this is
the one that we're seeing right here
so when we click to edit that we'll see
the text here so that's
this text obviously and you can choose
to have it left justified center
or right justified you can have a
separator
and then you can choose whether you want
to h1 h2h3h4
i like to use h4 because we've got the
h1 here which i cover in a separate
video if you want to look that up on my
channel
header tag s or header tag optimization
it's important for seo but nonetheless
you choose the different h
tags that we want for this main title
here as well as this secondary title
right here
you can also choose the color of the
text
whether you want it to have a background
all sorts of different stuff you can add
in a button so this is the button that
we have right here
contact us today so you can see this
contact us today
text right here and then we have the
link going off to the contact page
itself
and then if you want you can even have a
video show up
so right now we have an image which is
just set right here as the featured
image
and yeah you can see that that's this
image right here but if you wanted it to
be a video then you could have a
self-hosted video youtube video or even
a vimeo video
and then the thing that throws most
people off is you have to take this
slide
see how it says edit slide here so this
slide
with this text and the button and
everything you have to actually connect
it to the slider
so that's how you can add multiple
slides to one slider so we have the home
home slider here so we can
click this click update that'll add it
to the home slider
then we could add another slide and use
different text a different image
a different link with the button here
and then also add that to the home slide
homepage slider
and then obviously you want to click
update
and that's going to then create multiple
slides that will
it will slide through each of them in
sequence
as as we have it set so right now it's
set to
it's set to seven seconds so basically
every seven seconds it'll slide to the
next slide
you can even choose what order you want
the slides in
all sorts of different stuff so i would
just suggest
creating a slider attach it to a page
maybe even a page
that uh is just like a draft page and
then that way you can test it out
and see how it looks and then go ahead
and take it live from there
so i hope you did find that video
