Using the Revolution Slider

Your eLab Theme incorporates the Revolution Slider plugin that allows you to display a series of images or other content on your web pages as a slider or carousel. This is useful for picture galleries, introductions, etc.

Note: This appendix gives you a brief overview of using the Revolution Slider. Please see for more detailed instructions.

Before you can add a slider to a page/post, you first have to create the slider. Click on Slider Revolution in the WordPress menu to access the Sliders page. You can create a new slider from scratch or you can use a free or paid template.

Once the slider has been created, you can add it to your pages/posts in one of the following ways:

- In the page/post editor, add a shortcode [rev_slider alias=“xxx”] (where “xxx” is the name of the slider), or using the Classic Editor, click on the Add Element button and select a slider to insert it at your cursor location.

- In the Widgets screen (Appearance > Widgets), drag the “Revolution Slider” widget to a sidebar.

- Using X Builder, add a Revolution Slider widget/element to the page/post.
