How to Create Elementor Carousel Slider with Elementor Templates?

If you’re looking to create an eye-catching carousel slider in Elementor, you can use Elementor templates as slides. Creating carousel sliders with Elementor templates is a great way to add visual interest to your web pages and make them more engaging, interactive, and informative.

Using this method, you can create different types of carousel sliders, like slides with texts and images and use the image thumbnails as navigation or videos in your slider etc.

With The Plus Addons for Elementor Carousel Anything widget, you can easily add Elementor templates to your carousel.

To do this, add the widget on the page and open the first slide tab or the slide tab you want to add the content in.

In the Title field, you can add a title for your item tab it won’t be visible on the page it is just for your reference.

Now for the content, you have to use an Elementor template, with this, you can easily add unique layouts and content like images, text, videos etc. in your carousel.

So in order to add the content, you have to first create and save the template in Elementor.  

Then from the Content Type dropdown, choose either Template or Shortcode to add your Elementor template to the slide.

With the Template option, you have to choose your Elementor template from the dropdown.

In the Shortcode option, you have to add the Elementor template shortcode in the Enter Elementor Template Shortcode field.

You’ll get the same result with both processes. It is up to your preference.

Following the same process, you can add content to other slides as well.

To add more slides to your Elementor carousel slider click on the +Add Item button and repeat the above process. If your slides are going out of the container, you can turn on the Overflow Hidden toggle to solve the issue.

But if you want to create different types of sliders like a Testimonial slider, Woocommerce product slider or Blog post slider, we have dedicated widgets for each, so instead of using the Carousel Anything widget, you can use those.

What is Unique Carousel Remote ID Sync?

One of the most unique features that you get with The Plus Addons for Elementor widgets is that you can interconnect its various widgets using a unique id. With this option, you can easily connect your carousel with other widgets like an Accordion widget, Tabs widget, Infobox widget or the Process Steps widget.

How does this Work?

As mentioned, earlier this unique id feature lets you interconnect two widgets with a common id. Which means the id you have used on one widget you have to use the same id on the other widget to establish the connection.

Both widgets should have the same settings for the common properties for example if you are connecting the Carousel Anything widget with an Accordion widget, then the number of items in the accordion and the number of slides in the carousel should be the same.

And once the connection is established, the slider will change too if you change the accordion.
