Updated on February 25, 2020

How to use slideshow in Jupiter X?

Sliders are one of the most important sections of almost every website. 

There are two types of sliders which you can use in Jupiter X:

  • Slider Plugins
  • Elementor Slider Widgets

What’s the difference between Slider plugins and Slider widgets?

Slider plugins are 3rd party plugins that are bundled into Jupiter X. You can add them into your regular WordPress pages and without using Elementor. However, they can be added as a widget in Elementor. The 3rd party Slider plugins also are very high customizable.
On the other hand, Slider widgets in Elementor are built only for the Elementor and they cannot be used in non-Elementor templates. You can customize them in Elementor. They are very simple and easy to use but compared to 3rd party Slider plugins, the Slider widgets are much less customizable.

Currently, there are 3 premium slider plugins which are included in Jupiter X:
