Nextend settings - General settings - https

You can find the Nextend Settings in here.


Use protocol-relative URL

This option is replacing the http:// and https:// in the urls to //, which will make the links relative to your website's protocol, and this way your http images won't be blocked in your https address. But this will only replace our codes, so if you have manually written http:// links into your slides, and you have problems on your https:// website, then use the translate url option, or replace those links manually!

Force English backend 3.1.7

Keeps Smart Slider 3's backend in english even if the WordPress or Joomla language is not english.

Show Joomla admin footer

Shows the Joomla admin footer at the slider and slide editor.


Load jQuery on frontend

If you don't have jQuery in your website, this option will load it.

It will only load jQuery, if there isn't one loading with an acceptable version, so this can't cause conflicts.

Asynchronous means, that the javascript will compute as soon as it loads, so it doesn't wait for the whole code to load, and this can speed up it's loading. You can read more about this in here.


Combine our javascript files.


Minify our javascript files.

This option does not work without the Combine option, so you'll need to turn on both.
Script attributes

If you need to add some custom attributes to our JavaScript files, like the nodefer, you can put it here.

Accepted values:

  • Simple attribute: e.g. nodefer
  • Attribute and value attribute=value, attribute="value", attribute='value'


CSS mode

The Normal loading will just call in one css file for one of your sliders, as it was always before the 3.1.3 version. If you turn on the Combine option, it will put all css files, which are loading on one page into one file, and it minifies this code. The Inline option will put all your css codes into the html code of your website, so there won't be any css files incalled, which would allow you to pass website speed tests, like PageSpeed Insights, but in real life the Combine option is the most optimized option you can use, even if your test will say something about it, while it won't say anything for the other options. The "Async" option calls in the merged and minified css file using javascript. This option was also rather made to pass page speed tests, but css minification plugins could also skip our files using this option, in case your minification plugin has some issues and would mess up the display of our slider.

Load Font Awesome on frontend when required 3.2.5

If you are loading Font Awesome on your site, you can disable this switch to avoid having to load the library twice.

API requests


You can turn on or off the Curl option which we are using.

Clean Curl proxy

If you would keep getting the "Licensing server not reachable" message when you try to add your license key, try turning off this option.
