Configuring the Settings

There are several types of settings in the Mobile Slideshow pop-up. We explain all the settings in the following sections.


Orientation Use this option to set the orientation of the slideshow. Available options are: Portrait, Landscape
Mobile Color  Use this option to set the color of mobile phone which will act as a frame for your slideshow. Available options are: Black, White
Animation Speed Use this option to set the animation speed of the slide changing effect for the slideshow. The value is in milliseconds.
Slideshow Speed Use this option to set the waiting time between each slide change for the slideshow. The value is in milliseconds.
Pause on Hover Enable this option if you want the slideshow to stop changing slides while the mouse is over slideshow. If set to disabled, the slides will continue changing even if the mouse is over the slideshow.

Adding an Entrance Animation

Viewport Animation field in the settings pop-up allows you to hide the shortcode initially and make it visible with animation when you scroll in the browser.
