Thumbnails Addon

Would you like to add some thumbnail navigation to your Soliloquy sliders? With the Thumbnails Addon this is very easy to do! We’ll walk you through how to set up and use Soliloquy’s Thumbnails Addon.



Please follow our instructions on how to install and activate addons.

In this instance, you’ll be activating the Soliloquy Thumbnails Addon.


Step 1 – Create or edit your slider

Your first step is to create a new slider or edit an existing one. You can follow along with our documentation for creating your first slider.

Step 2 – Configure the thumbnail options

Now it’s time to enable thumbnails on the slider. To do this, navigate to the Thumbnails tab and click the box for Enable Slider Thumbnails? and then configure the remaining thumbnail options.

On the Thumbnails tab, click to Enable Slider Thumbnails

Step 3 – Configure the thumbnail options for mobile

Next, go to the Mobile tab. There is an option on the Mobile tab to turn on or off the slider thumbnails.

On the Mobile tab, click to enable the slider thumbnails there too
