Beautiful websites require hard work. However, WordPress makes it easy to make.

One of the features that makes websites beautiful is the slider. Sliders are very powerful elements in websites. They are lovely, and can be used to convey a lot of information, using only a small part of the web page.

Making sliders could be quite tricky, but the benefits are worth the effort.

Sliders have the ability to:
to pass lots of info across to users without chunky text.
grab the attention of readers quickly.
display other content asides images, such as videos.

However, they could end up being really messy. For this reason, we would be taking a look at how to effortlessly create sliders on our WordPress website through plugins.

Quick, simple and easy to use.

We would be creating a slider, be it compact or fullscreen in just four steps.

Step 1: Download the Slider Plugin

We would be downloading the slider plugin ( The Smart Slider 3 plugin would be used for this tutorial. Guess what? It‘s free to download.

Don‘t forget it is the WordPress slider we are going to be using here.

Step 2: Upload the plugin to your site

What we would do next is to visit the WordPress dashboard, click on the plugins section and upload the downloaded Smart Slider 3 plugin.
After uploading the plugin, we would then activate the plugin.
Things are about to get interesting here, we would be creating our first beautiful slider.

Step 3: Create your first slider

After activating our Smart Slider 3 plugin, it would be available on the WordPress dashboard.
Then we would click on it on the WordPress dashboard. After clicking on it, there would be two options to create a slider, either manually or using a template.
Remember I said it would be easy the other time, therefore we would be using the template which is the faster option here.
Selecting the template option would present us with free and premium templates. Choose any of the templates, and we would get a preview of the template.
The template can then be imported and would be present in the Smart Slider menu.

Step 4: Add the slider to a page

Next stop would be to add the slider to the website.
Visit the website‘s homepage or whatever page you wish to add the plugin, and click “Edit with Elementor”.
New icons would pop up on the webpage, click the “+” and then the “Smart Slider” option. Drag and drop the “Smart Slider” option on the web page and then choose the template of choice.

To finish this up, update the web page using the update option at the bottom of the page.

Yipeee! We’ve added a slider to our WordPress website.

Step 5: Edit the Slider

To edit a slider, click on the “Smart Slider” option at the top of your WordPress website, and click on the edit slider option.

If you wish to get better templates, you can buy from the premium templates available.
