How to Create Featured Blog Post Sliders on your WordPress Site with Elementor?

How you display the information on your website plays a very important role!

In the age of advanced design styling, having just a simple line of text to display crucial information on your website will not help you in staying ahead of your competition. But if you do not know how to code, this can be a challenge… but not anymore! With the Card Slider Elementor widget, you can display information on your website in impressive card sliders format.

You can even display your blog posts on the Card Slider by simply selecting the source as “Post” which makes the widget more useful and easy to use.

In this tutorial, we will see how you can display your recent posts on your website with the help of Elementor and PowerPack Addon’s Card Slider widget. If you prefer watching a video instead, check here.

You will require Elementor and the PowerPack Elementor addon installed and activated to create a blog post slider on your website similar to the one we are about to make.

Let’s begin, shall we?

Creating a Blog Post/Information Slider with Elementor

Firstly, open the page you want to add the Card Slider to in Elementor Editor. Once you are in the editor, drag and drop the Card Slider widget on the page.

Content Tab

Since I want to display the blog posts on the slider, I’ll set the source as “Posts”. Once you do that, you will see your recent posts showing up on the slider. You can also change the number of tabs you want to display on the slider. For the link to the respective blog, you can go with Title, Image, Button, and Box.

You can choose whether to display the date and can even change the date icon. If you do not wish to display the recent posts, you can set a custom query to filter the posts you want to display on your posts slider with the query subsection.

You can even enable/disable the title, featured image, excerpt, post meta, author, and the category for your slider. Moreover, you can change the slider speed, auto play speed and can enable/disable and customize the pagination.

Here are the changes I have made to the Card Slider’s Content Tab:


Style Tab

Now we will look at how our sider looks, and we can adjust this using the Style Tab. You can fully customize the card, image, button and the navigation dots for the slider.

You can customize the height, width, typography, image radius, title, text, dots, etc. the way you want.

Here are the changes I have made to the style tab of the Card Slider widget:

Once you have made all the changes, this is what your card slider widget would look like:
