In Design Settings, check the option to “Go Full Screen” then select one of the following Layout Modes:

Block

Block mode pushes the page content below the slider. As the user scrolls down the page, the page content will appear and the slider disappear.

Overlay

Overlay mode places the slider on a layer above the page content, obscuring the content. This option works well if you want a full-screen slider on your page, e.g. for a landing page. No other content will display.

Allow Parallax Scroll

Parallax scrolling will add a parallax scrolling effect.

 

Creating a Products Carousel

To create a carousel of products, first read through the article on creating a products slider.

Once you’ve created your slider, you can make it into a slider by increasing the number of Carousel Items in the Slider Settings panel:

products-carousel-items

Selecting 4 items will look like this on the page:

products-carousel

Note that the options in the Products Feed Slider Layout panel do not apply to carousels.

 

Creating a Products Slider

You can create a Products Slider to showcase selected WooCommerce products in a slider or a carousel. Go to Sliders > Add New to create a new slider, give it a name, then select ‘Products (requires WooCommerce)’ in the ‘Content Type’ dropdown in the Slider Settings panel.

There are some additional settings to give you greater flexibility in how your slider works:

Use Alt Product Image as Background Image

When you install Super Hero Slider Pro, the plugin automatically adds a new field to your product edit screen between the Product Image and Product Gallery panels.

slider-image

You can upload an image here that won’t display in your product page but that is available for your slider. If you prefer to use the alt image in your slider, just check the ‘Use Alt Product Image as Background Image’ option.

Embed Featured Image in Product Description

In conjunction with the setting above, you can choose to include the product’s featured image as part of the slide content. By checking both these options and including an alt image, you can create slides like this:

Adding a Text Menu to a Posts Slider

Adding a Posts Carousel
