You’ll need to change this ID number to match your slider ID number. You can find this by looking in the sidebar of your slider edit screen.

For more information on how to find your slider ID number you can read this article.

[css]#soliloquy-container-508264 .soliloquy-controls-direction {
display: block !important;
If you are using the Metro theme, you need to add this in addition to the code above:
[css]#soliloquy-container-508264 .soliloquy-controls-direction {
display: block !important;
#soliloquy-container-508264 .soliloquy-prev {
left: 0 !important;
opacity: 1 !important;
#soliloquy-container-508264 .soliloquy-next {
right: 0 !important;
opacity: 1 !important;
Be sure to update the -508264 with your own slider ID number

If you’d like to change this for all sliders, just add the CSS to the WordPress customizer.

Once you click Publish or Update on your slider, you’re all set!
