    Slider elements

    The slider elements allow you to add an interactive slider to your layout.

    How a slider is composed

    A slider includes the following component parts:

    • Slider container - The outer container which holds your slides
    • Slider navigation - The buttons used to navigate between slides. These are set within the Slider container
    • Slider pagination - Shows the number of slides and can act as navigation. This is set within the Slider container
    • Slide - The slides which hold your content.
