How to Create a WordPress Slider With Multiple Images

by Waseem Abbas on June 3, 2022

Do you want to create a WordPress slider with multiple images? There are many types of image sliders that you can create with multiple images using the Soliloquy plugin for WordPress. In this article, we will share how to create a WordPress slider with multiple images.

Some WordPress themes come with an image slider included. However, most of these sliders have very limited features. For the most fully-featured, multiple image slider, you’ll need to install the Soliloquy WordPress plugin.

Soliloquy gives you the ability to create more than 4 different types of multiple image sliders. Each of these image sliders can be created using Soliloquy’s many addons.

(Note: you may need to check your Soliloquy license information to access these addons.)

Let’s go over 4 different sliders that you can create using multiple images in Soliloquy…

1. Multiple Image Slider with Thumbnails

Wow your website visitors by allowing them to preview the slides coming up next. An image slider with thumbnails provides a great user experience by displaying the slides as small thumbnails below the main slide.

  • action-adult-backlit-433083
  • action-backlit-beach-1046896
  • adult-backlit-child-356188
  • adults-backlit-beach-950047
  • artistic-backlit-creative-532285
  • backlit-beach-clouds-1005198
  • backlit-blur-couple-556667
  • backlit-couple-love-912473
  • beach-clouds-dancing-898220
  • camera-mountains-person-6745

You can customize how these thumbnails are displayed from the Thumbnails tab in your Soliloquy slider.

2. Multiple Image Carousel Slider

If you have a lot of images that you want to display on your site, a carousel slider is the perfect choice. For example, if you are a photographer, a carousel slider allows you to display the many images in your portfolio in a beautiful and user-friendly way.

With Soliloquy, you can customize the width & height, how many items to move per animation, and more.

3. Multiple Image Lightbox Slider

A lightbox slider is another smart way to display multiple images on your site. With a lightbox slider, your visitor can click on any of your images to view them at a larger size. This is another great choice for displaying your photography or design portfolio.

You can turn your slider into a lightbox slider by going to the Lightbox tab from your Soliloquy slider. You can enable keyboard navigation, mouse navigation, or arrows. You can even choose from one of our beautiful lightbox themes.

4. Featured Content Slider

If you have blog posts, categories, or tags that you would like to feature in your image slider, you’ll need to create a featured content slider using Soliloquy’s Featured Content Addon.

Once the Featured Content Addon is activated, you will find it in the External Slider tab. Simply select it, and set your preferred settings.

Here’s an example of what a featured content slider looks like:

    Sounds like what I need but can I say have my home page text and float the slider images behind the static text?

      Hey Dereck, caption for all slides is different. However, if you keep the same text as image slide caption for all your slides, then this may work for you.

    Does Soliloquy support images of WIDELY varying resolutions in the same slider? IE, can it adjust the slider/frame to different image sizes/resolutions without cutting off the images or leaving blanks space on the edges? I would like to showcase photos from a variety of photographers who shoot in varying resolutions.
