Eazy Flickity Slider

Description

Eazy Flickity Slider lets you create responsive sliders, without being overly complex.
Adding slides is as easy as adding a post. Creating a slider works like adding a post to a category. You can then use a shortcode to get the slider to display on your site. There is a shortcode generator that shows up next to the add media button on the edit post & edit page sections of the admin.
The plugin uses flickity.js by Metafizzy to animate the slider.

How do add a slider?

Click on the ‘Add New Slide’ item under the Eazy Flickity Slider section in your admin. You can add the slider image like you would a post; Give it a title, then navigate to the Eazy Flickity Slider box on the right and either add it to an existing slider or click on add new slider and add one. Add the image using the Add Eazy Flickity Slide Image box below the Eazy Flickity Sliders box.

How do I set the size of the slider?

If you are using the Flickity Slider button, it will ask you for a width and height. It is important to set the unit of measure you are using. (i.e. px, em, %, vw etc.)
If you are adding your own shortcode you should pass height & width arguments. [eazy-flickity-slider height=”100px” width=”100px”]

How do I set the movement of the slider?

Unfortunately, there are not currently any controls for the slider built into the plugin. You would need to edit eazy-flickity-slider/resources/js/flickity.shortcode.js. You can change these settings using the settings defined by Metafizzy for the flickity.js libray.
