How to Manage the New Slide Status in WordPress Sliders

by Barbi Atkinson on July 3, 2019

Are you thinking to manage the slide status of your image sliders? Sometimes when you add a new slide in your slider, you don’t want it to be published right away. In this tutorial, we will share how to manage the new slide status in WordPress sliders.

By default, if you add a new slide to your WordPress sliders, it will be published automatically. However, if you want to draft the new slide before it’s published, then we recommend you to use the Soliloquy plugin.

Soliloquy allows you to manage the slide status, so you can add meta information or schedule the image slider. It gives you full control on your WordPress slider needs.

To manage the new slide status in WordPress sliders, you’ll need to follow these 3 steps:

  • Step 1. Install and activate Soliloquy image slider
  • Step 2. Create an image slider using Soliloquy plugin
  • Step 3. Edit the image status

Ready to get started? Let’s go!

Step 1: Install and Activate Soliloquy Image Slider

The first thing that you need to do is install and activate Soliloquy plugin on your WordPress image site.

Step 3: Edit the image status

When you add the slides in the published slider, they will be published automatically. To manage the new slide status, you’ll see the “eye” icon on each image.

Green means the slide is Published and will show. If you click the green “eye” icon it will change to yellow. The Yellow “eye” icon means that the slide is now in Draft status and will not appear in the slider.

It’s really that simple!

Changing the image slide status to draft mode is super easy in Soliloquy
