Event Carousel widget is a vastly used user-friendly tool. By using a smart carousel system, this widget is used to showcase events like donations, charity, medical services, and many things. You can use it on your websites to present the events professionally to your visitors.
To use this easy-to-use widget effectively, you need to know how it operates. Let me give you a complete guide to it!
To Insert Widget
Inserting widget is just a matter of drag and drop. However, click and hold on the widget icon from the menu and drag it to the drop point. Follow the picture above.
Point to be Noted:
To use this widget, you must have events inserted in your WordPress Events dashboard. If it’s blank, the Event Carousel widget will show nothing on the screen.
Using the Content tab, you can basically make a layout of a particular part of the website. Let’s get you started!
Go to Content Tab> Layout
The first section Layout gives you the drop-down controller to change the theme of the carousel by Skin.
Now remember, each Skin comes with a slight different editable set of sections. You can insert a maximum number of 4 columns in this event carousel. The switcher each shows/hides information on the screen.
Go to Content Tab> Image
In this section, you can adjust the size of the image on the carousel.
Go to Content Tab> Query
In this section, you can select the event source to showcase on the screen. You can, however, select the start and end date and time from here.
Go to Content Tab> Navigation
Here, you can select the style and position of the navigation button.
Go to Content Tab> Carousel Settings
This section is for customizing the layout and animation style. You can either select a carousel or coverflow from the drop-down controller Layout.
Now, time for some Style. In this Style tab, you will have more options to create your unique Event Carousel as you like. Let’s have a look.
Go to Style Tab> Items
The first section of the Style tab, Items, lets you change the color, add padding or border to the content part below the image. The Hover Style controller adds a line of color underneath the content part. Check on the hover mode for more style.
Go to Style Tab> Image
With this section, you can add padding, margin, or border to the image part. Also, you can change the transparency of the image for normal and hover mode.
