Custom Frontpage Slideshow

Hello there :slight_smile:

For my front-page I’d like to make a custom slideshow, that show-cast some of my pictures in a similar fashion to this one here:

The only differences I would like to implement are a bit more customize rectangle (for example, with round borders), some maybe better fade-in and fade-out effects and if possible some personal quotes that come/move to/appear just right on the sides, or the corners of the photograph itself and disappear just a bit before the photo changes for another one and then some other quotes should comes in just a bit later then new photo appears and leave like above, and so on and on for all the pictures and quotes I decide to use for the slideshow…

So, the question is, what is really possible? And what is a good way to achieve it?

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:


You can try the Classic Slider element

You can see it in action on the link below.


Hey Paul :slight_smile:

Thanks for your reply, that could do it maybe for the pictures, but what if I would like a more customized frame and, as I said, some random quotes that appears over the image (after a short delay), or, for example, that fade in and fade out?

Hello There,

The example url is using Flexslider. This is pretty much the same as what we have in the Classic Slider. It is very useful if you only want to display images. If you wanted to add more layers for each slides, it is best that you use another slider plugin like revolution slider or layer slider. You may install it by going to X/Pro > Overview > Extensions. To know more about how we have integrated this plugins in the theme, please check this out:

Hope this helps.
