Show help beacon

In the bottom right corner you can see a beacon, which is connected to our documentation and support system. You can use it to look for some option, or to write a support ticket to us. If you don't want it there, just turn it off.

Show discover modal

You can decide whether to show the Discover Smart Slider video after an update or re-install.

Automatic update check

You can decide whether you would like to get a notification on the updates or not. The updates will be checked once a week, and the notification will be shown until the update is done.

Translate url

If you developed the site in another domain, you can change the image URLs from the old, developer site to the new, live site. For example:






Images will have these links in the frontend (in the backend they won't change):

Editor - additional CSS files

You can call in your css files, where our sliders are loading. The file incalling looks like this:

<link rel='stylesheet' href='[YOUR URL]' type='text/css' media='all' />

so  give the whole url pointing to your css file, because it loads in the backend too, so a relative path would give a different result with /administrator/ or /wp-admin/ in the link.

Hardware acceleration on sliders

With the translate3d CSS code the hardware acceleration can be forced, which will make the animations smoother. If you see your slider flicker, turn this option off.

Send slide as file

On some server settings, you might experience issues when you are trying to save your slides. You can turn on this option to make your server accept the changes you made.

Open preview in new window

Wether or not your slider's preview should be opened up in a new window, or in your editor. Even if you turn this option off, you can open up your slider's preview on a new page by clicking on the Preview button using your mouse scroller.
