Portfolio slider/gallery

It’s been a while since I updated my folio so apologise for this simple question. I want to add a folio page with a simple content layout:
Text 01
Gallery 01
Text 02
Gallery 02

I added the classic slider (we do have better options now?) but I can’t find a way to add images inside.
As far as I remember back in the days you needed to add images to wp gallery and then adding the code in the text field of the component. Hope this is still not the case.

Am I missing something?

Hello @MrK,

Thank you Prakash I will check the video.
What about “modern slider”? Can’t find the component for those inside my list.

Hello @MrK,

In case you are using the Cornerstone page builder inside the Portfolio post content then you can add the modern slider inside the Portfolio content.

Test-Page-Builder-Pro (10)
You need to select any of the sliders from the presets slider list.

Since you are a Pro theme user I would suggest you must create a Single Portfolio layout through the Layout builder you can render the Portfolio content with a Modern slider properly .

In case you have not seen our doc of layout builder please have a look at it

You may check the video tutorial as well.

Please note you must assign the layout as well, please have a look at our doc to learn more about how to assign the layouts.

Hope it helps

Helps a lot thanks I will check those guides. As per “Single Portfolio layout” you mean the layout of each single “post” inside my folio correct? I create a master single folio element layout basically?

Hello @MrK,

Please note you need to create only one Single layout for the portfolio post and it would render all of your portfolio post content.

Hope it helps

Dear Prakash, I checked the Layout option. Really good but how can I use more variables? I want to do something simple like this picture.

There is a way to pull out different variables? like content 02 , content 03 etc?
Same for the sliders.
Otherwise templates seem a better choice but I waited so long for these Layout option

Thanks for the help

I managed to create a template instead of a layout that works well.
As per image I’m using the Slider stacked option

All good but I would like the option to view full screen the picture when clicked, is that possible?

Hello @MrK,

In case you want to open the image in the lightbox please have a look at this thread for reference to learn more about how to open an image in the lightbox on click event.

Hope it helps

That worked great!
Also if I use the same lightbox-01 on all the images I get like a full size slider.
And I can style the lightbox as I want with css.

I guess it will be too much to ask to have it triggered by a bottom right icon instead of the full picture? [ ]

Hello @MrK,

I have tested with the slider element and it works fine at my end. Please have a look at the given screenshot below for the reference structure.
Test-Page-Builder-Pro (13)

Added a custom class on the image
Test-Page-Builder-Pro (14)

You need to add an image and enable the link option and add the image URL for the lightbox

Now you need to add the same image class to your selector shortcode

Test-Page-Builder-Pro (15)

Yes you may customize the style of the lightbox through the custom CSS code as per your design

Regretfully there is no option to trigger it using a button or icon.

Hope it helps

Hi Prakash,
yes it works perfect thank you!

After all these years I’m still impressed with your support.

Thank you
