What is a Slider?
Sliders on a website are very common these days. A Slider is a series of images in a ‘Slide Show’ format usually with clickable links in the images. Can also include animations and videos in the slides.
In the past to have a features like these you had to use some expensive software to create a ‘Flash Slide Show’ and then insert that file into your page or post.
However, with the advances in Web Browsers this Flash element has been made obsolete and not supported by many of today’s web browsers, especially on mobile devices such as a cell phone or tablet.
Today’s web browsers do most times support Slide Show elements even on mobile devices. A Slider is an option for slide shows many times with more advanced features you can incorporate to the images to enhance your site’s visitors experience.
