Sliders. That's what we're talking about today. Why? you askbecause Cornerstone now has native Sliders!

  • Do Slides support any custom content I want to put in them? Totally.
  • Can it do an infinite loop (i.e. carousel)? Totes magotes.
  • Does it have adaptive height content? Absolutely.
  • Is it powered by Flexbox / CSS Grid with simple alignment controls? Yes.
  • Can it snap slides in place or do freescrolling? Roger.
  • Does it support keyboard events? Yeppers.
  • Touch events? Double yeppers.
  • Can I implement custom navigation designed how I want? Right on.
  • Can I easily space out my content with gaps? Certainly.
  • Can it handle paged content moving multiple slides at once? Of course.
  • Can the active slide count be responsive? Let me checkyes.
  • Can it accommodate variable-width slides? Yesh.
  • Can I use Scroll Effects with Slides for nifty interactions? For sure.
  • Does it do autoplay and marquee scrolling? Affirmative.
  • Can I use Loopers with it? By all means.
  • So I can loop through posts with it? You got it.
  • And WooCommerce products? Indubitably.
  • And custom JSON data structures? Without question.
  • Can I dynamically reference state, like my current slide number? Uh huh.
  • If I just keep asking questions will you keep saying yes? Aye.

In all seriousness, there is a lot you can do with our new Sliders, which is why we strongly recommend you go check out the Slider documentation to get up to speed. We also have a step-by-step video tutorial that walks you through the entire Element front to back.

But that's not all

We have also launched an exciting new product called Modern Sliders. If you are even remotely excited about the possibilities of native sliders (and you should be), Modern Sliders is the perfect addition to this incredible new Element. It is for both X and Pro customers as the Slider Element is available to all!

Note: As mentioned in notes for the past two release cycles, we are discontinuing support for IE11. This release is the first to no longer include IE11 javascript polyfills, and we will not be testing in IE11 or fixing any issues affecting that browser.
