Custom items

  Info

This feature is available only in Pro version.


Custom items provide a convenient way to add custom content to a slider without using any of the predefined data sources. Custom items are assigned to a slider by group, therefore all custom items must belong to a group.

To create a slider with custom content:

  1. Download, install and activate the plugin Minitek Custom Items.

  2. Go to Minitek Slider Dashboard and click on "Items Groups".

  3. Enter a name for a new group and click on "Add New Group".

  4. On the next step you must create some items in this group. Go to Minitek Slider Dashboard and click on "Custom Items", then click on "Add New Item".

    A custom item has the following data:

    Title
    The title for this item (required).
    Description
    Optional text that will be displayed in the slider as item introtext. HTML is allowed.
    Author
    An optional author name.
    Item URL
    An optional url for the item link.
    Author URL
    An optional author url.
    Groups
    Assign the custom item to one or more groups.
    Categories
    Assign the custom item to one or more categories.
    Tags
    Assign the custom item to one or more tags.
    Featured Image
    An optional image. This image will be displayed in the slider.
  5. Repeat the process to create as many items as you want.

  6. Finally, assign the group to a slider. You must select Custom Items as data source type and then select the group in the field Data source > Group.
