Create a Slidedeck

It’s now easier than ever to create custom WordPress sliders using images, video, text, and HTML with our slide-by-slide editor. Beautiful lenses allow you to transform the look and feel of your SlideDeck in an instant.

Go to SlideDeck > Manage > New Slide > Create SlideDeck

Text Slide Type

The Custom Content Text Slide Type is one of 4 Custom Content Slide Types to choose from. This slide type is meant for text only content and is great for large amounts of copy or quotes. Choose a layout, add your content and you are good to go. By far the most straight forward Custom Content Slide Type we have.

Configuration Options:

Choose Layout

You have 3 options to choose from for the layout of the text slide type: Basic, Multi-column and Block Quote. Basic is a pretty standard layout, the title above text and text full width of the slide. Multi-column uses CSS columns to split the copy into 2 columns below the title, this works great in modern browsers that support this feature. Block quote formats the slide into a blockquote format, a large pronounced title, and content that is centered and aligned to the middle vertically in the slide.

Slide Link

Add a URL to the slide, the title by default gets linked, which you can toggle to link the whole slide with in the deck Options.

Title

Set the title of the slide/content

Copy

Text area with WYSIWYG editor to add and edit your text based content.

Available In:

SlideDeck Dev Addon

HTML Slide Type

The Custom Content HTML Slide Type is one of 4 Custom Content Slide Types to choose from. This slide type is meant for custom HTML written by the user. In most cases, the Custom Content HTML Slide Type can handle shortcodes from other plugins, but this greatly depends on the method in which they have made those available. This slide type is best used in tandem with a custom Lens, this way you can take full advantage of custom styling on a lens level instead of relying on theme style inheritance, which is not accessible in the admin preview.

Configuration Options:

Title

Specify a title for your slide. This title will only be viewable when used with a lens like Classic. The title is not inserted into the Slide content.

Insert HTML

Text area for you to insert your HTML. We use CodeMirror to enable syntax highlighting and formatting to help ease the insertion and editing of HTML content.

Available In:

SlideDeck Dev Addon

Video Slide Type

Description:

The Custom Content Video Slide Type is one of 4 Custom Content Slide Types to choose from. The slide type allows you to paste a URL from Vimeo, YouTube, or Dailymotion and then it extracts the metadata and allows you to edit the extracted info. When adding a video, the title, description, thumbnail, and internal video data are captured. The information is then immediately filled in the text areas below the video URL/Chooser and can be edited.

Create Custom Responsive Video Sliders

Configuration Options:

Add Video URL

This is a text field where you may add a URL to the video page that you’d like to use the video from. A simple URL such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtWez5u8uEg should work fine (short URLs are also supported). When the “Update” button is pressed, the video info and thumbnail should be fetched and filled automatically.

Choose Text Type

You have 3 options to choose from for the layout of the text slide type: Caption, Body Text, and None. These options are quite self-explanatory, but may change slightly depending on the lens being used, and more importantly, the size of the deck in question.

Slide Link

Add a URL to the slide, the title by default gets linked, which you can toggle to link the whole slide within the deck Options.

Title

Set the title of the slide/content

Description

Text area with WYSIWYG editor to add and edit your video description.

Image Scaling

Specify how images are scaled in your SlideDeck:

Do Not Scale Images – Do not attempt to scale images at all. Images will be center aligned on the slide.

Scale Proportionally and Crop – Scale the image so the entire slide area is covered and crop as appropriate. This works for most situations and is the default, but sometimes if your image aspect ratio does not match it may produce odd results.

Scale Proportionally and Do Not Crop – Scale the image so the entire image fits within the slide area. This will show black bars on the sides of the image that do not fit in the SlideDeck’s aspect ratio.

Caption Position
Change the position of the caption overlay for the Caption layout to the top or bottom of the slide.

Body Text Position
Change the position of the body text overlay for the Body Text layout to the left or right side of the slide.

Image Slide Type

Description:

The Custom Content Image Slide Type is one of 4 Custom Content Slide Types to choose from. This slide type is meant for mixed image and text content and is great for slideshows, tours, and feature highlights. Choose a layout, choose an image, add your content and you are good to go. The Custom Content Image Slide Type can take images directly from an URL, a new image upload or an existing image in your Media Library.

Configuration Options:

Specify an Image

Your slide’s image content can be pulled from multiple locations:

image_slider

Upload an Image – This will upload an image to your WordPress Media Library and associate it with your slide

image_slider1

Specify a URL – This will take any URL you specify and use it as the slide’s image

image_slider2

From Media Library – Specify any image from your Media Library as your slide’s image

Choose Layout

You have 3 options to choose from for the layout of the image slide type: Caption, Body Text, and None. The caption is the default layout and will display your text overlayed on the image at the top or bottom of the slide as specified with the Caption Position option. The Body Text layout will display your text overlayed on the image taking half the slide area for your text. Body Text is a great layout for slides with a large amount of text. If you do not wish to have any text on your slide, choose the None layout.

Slide Link

Specify an URL to link your entire slide area.

Title

Specify a title for the slide. This will display in your slide’s text area.

Description

Specify a description or any long-form rich text message to display in your slide’s text area.

Preferred Image Size

When uploading images in WordPress, multiple size variations of your upload are created to keep downloads small and prevent the interface from becoming too slow. We try to find the best size automatically within reason so that your images look the best and your SlideDeck operates smoothly. If you wish to override this automatic detection, however, you can specify a size to use here.

Image Scaling

Specify how images are scaled in your SlideDeck:

  Do Not Scale Images – Do not attempt to scale images at all. Images will be center aligned on the slide.

Scale Proportionally and Crop – Scale the image so the entire slide area is covered and crop as appropriate. This works for most situations and is the default, but sometimes if your image aspect ratio does not match it may produce odd results.

Body Text Position

Change the position of the body text overlay for the Body Text layout to the left or right side of the slide.

The Mixed Slide Type can be achieved using either Custom Content Sources or Dynamic Content Sources. This slide type is meant for mixed image, video, HTML, and text content and is great for slideshows, tours, and feature highlights. Choose a layout, add your content and you are good to go.

    The Block Title lens brings a unique feature to the collection: It shows the titles of your slides with a solid background that can be controlled with the accent color.

Block Title supports all content types including custom slide types.

    This Lens Works With:

    500px, Dailymotion, Dribbble, Flickr, Google+, Google+ Images, Instagram, Pinterest, Posts, RSS Feeds, Twitter, Vimeo, YouTube, Custom Content

    Classic

    Overview: The Classic Lens is our throwback to our original concept of SlideDeck.The Classic Lens’s main differentiation is the “spine” feature, vertical bars used as the navigation of this Lens.

    classic-lens

    Appearance Options:

    Title Font
    The title font not only changes the font of the title in the content but also in the spine for this Lens.
    Navigation Options:

    Inactive Spine Color
    Allows you to change the color of the inactive spines via a color picker.

    Active Spine Color
    Allows you to change the color of the active spines via a color picker.

    Spine Title Length
    You can adjust the title length to fit in the spines, this is especially useful for content with long titles.

    Spine Width
    Adjust the spine width with ease. Skinny spines? You got it. Short and chubby? No problem.

    Show Spine Titles
    Toggle the spine titles on or off

    Index Type
    Set the index type of your spines. Choose from numbers(1, 2, 3 etc), letters(a, b, c, OR A, B, C etc), roman numerals(i, ii, iii OR I, II, III etc)
    Playback Options:

Please note that due to its unique layout, Reporter does not work with Custom Content SlideDecks.

    Titles

    Overview:

    The Titles lens was inspired by the custom SlideDeck lens used on the digital-telepathy blog (creators of SlideDeck 2). This lens is a gorgeous display for your latest blog posts or other dynamic content sources with striking imagery. Don’t have great imagery in your content source? No worries, the Titles lens will fall back gracefully framing your content’s title, time and author information.

    Please note that due to its specialized, unique layout this lens does not work with Custom Content SlideDecks. There is not an option for excerpt display with this lens as the focus is on the imagery and the title, so you will see excerpt related options removed from the Content Options Panel.

    titles

    Content Options:

    All excerpt options will be removed from this options panel as this lens does not have an area for excerpt content.

    Navigation Options:

    Navigation Type:

    The type of navigation to display. By default, thumbnails are used, but you can also opt to choose dots if your content doesn’t have much imagery. You can also turn the navigation off completely with this option.

    Thumbnail Height:

    If you have chosen the “Thumbnails” navigation type, you can specify a percentage of the width of the thumbnails to determine the thumbnail’s height. For example, a value of 50% will make the height of the thumbnail half of the width of the thumbnail.

    toolkit

    Appearance Options:

    Border/Frame

    (Thick / Hairline / None)
    Allows you to set the thickness of the frame

    Caption Position

    (Top / Left / Right / Bottom)
    Moves the caption area to the specified edge. Note that when navigation is inside of the frame area and is too close to the caption position, the caption position will be shifted away from it.

    Text Color Variation

    Allows you to set a color variation independent of the main Lens Variation option ***(Dynamic Source only)***.

    Navigation Options:

    Navigation Position

    (Top / Bottom / Left / Right)
    Tool Kit offers a relatively unique feature of being able to place the navigation thumbnails or dots at any edge of the deck. Keep in mind that this option may overpower other options. For example, if your navigation is Inside Slide Area and on the left, it will push your Caption Position to the right when selected. It’s also important to note that when the Navigation Position is set to Left or Right, the deck becomes a vertical deck.

    Navigation Type

    You can use this to switch between dots, thumbnails, or none.

    Navigation Style

    Tool Kit offers the ability to have your navigation dots or thumbnails either: Hanging outside the deck, In its own bar, or Inside the slide area. As noted above, the Inside slide area option may influence the Caption Position option.

    Arrow Style

    Choose from several built-in arrow styles for the deck. This affects the main navigation arrows only.

    Thumbnail Arrow Style

    This controls the arrows that are used to paginate the thumbnail navigation. There are only two styles, but we think they fit most needs.

    Advanced Options Page

    Description:

    The Advanced Options page is where you will find configuration options to improve the performance of SlideDeck depending on your server’s configuration, troubleshoot settings and reference existing API links. At the very least, you will be visiting this page once when you first install a paid version of SlideDeck 2 to input your license key; after that though you probably won’t need to come back here unless we ask you to in a support ticket.

    advancopt

    Advanced Options:

    Always load SlideDeck JavaScript/CSS on every page?

    By default we load the basic libraries for SlideDeck on every page of your site. We do this because SlideDeck can be deployed in many different ways, some of which we cannot predict, so we err on the side of caution to give you the greatest flexibility of deployment.

    SlideDeck is intelligent enough to detect when a SlideDeck is loaded as a shortcode embed in a Post, Page or Custom Post Type entry or with the SlideDeck Widget. If you are only embedding SlideDecks via these methods, you can probably turn this option off. If you are embedding SlideDecks in your theme directly however, you will probably want to leave this option on as WordPress does not provide the means to know early enough in the rendering of a page that a SlideDeck is being rendered via your theme, so we cannot queue up the assets for load.

    Disable wpautop() function?

    WordPress has a great feature called wpautop() which attempts to read all the content in your post and convert any line breaks automatically into semantic, well-formatted HTML

    tags where it thinks appropriate. Sometimes, this “magic” functionality can cause some odd errors in the display of your SlideDeck content though, so if you’re seeing odd spacing in your SlideDeck where you don’t think you should, try turning this option on.

    Don’t enqueue the jquery.mousewheel.js library (if you have your own solution)

    SlideDecks can use your mousewheel to navigate between slides if you have that navigation option enabled. We load a JavaScript library that  provides this sort of interaction capability, but we understand that you may already be loading a similar solution. If you are already loading a jQuery mousewheel plugin or you do not have mousewheel navigation enabled on any of your SlideDecks, feel free to turn this option on.

    Don’t enqueue the jquery.easing.1.3.js library (if you have your own solution)

    By default jQuery doesn’t come with very many easing options, so we load a jQuery plugin that provides the easing options we offer in the SlideDeck 2 Playback Options Panel. If you are only using the “Swing” easing option (the default) or are loading a compatible jQuery easing library already, feel free to turn this option on. Please note that not all jQuery easing plugins will name their easings the same, so check to see that your easing plugin naming matches the names found in our easing plugin or a JavaScript error may occur and break your SlideDecks.

    Disable the ability to Add New and Edit SlideDecks for non Admins

    We understand that you may not want everyone who has the ability to write posts also have the ability to make and edit SlideDecks. Turn this option on to make sure that only Admin users can actually create or edit SlideDecks.

    Include the “iframe=1” attribute in all new shortcode embeds by default

    If you have a very custom theme or a specialized plugin that is causing too many conflicts with the way that SlideDecks should render, you can easily add the iframe=1 option to your SlideDeck shortcode to ensure that it is loaded isolated in an iframe. If you find you want this to happen for all SlideDecks you create, just turn this option on and any new SlideDeck embeds you place will have the iframe=1 option automatically appended to the shortcode. Please note that this will not modify any existing shortcode embeds you have already placed.

    Opt-in to make SlideDeck better with anonymous usage statistics

    In order to make SlideDeck better we offer you the option to opt-in to send us anonymous usage statistics. As the option says, these statistics are completely anonymous and you will not be personally identified by them. We use these statistics to analyze which features are being used the most often by our customers, what new features would be useful to add in or develop further or which areas need improvement.

    Twitter user to tweet via for overlays

    The overlay feature allows your visitors to share your SlideDecks via Twitter and Facebook. You can specify the default Twitter user your overlays will tweet “via”
