Backstage Blog

I built image carousels on a few of my pages. These are effective ways to display many images on a static page without overloading the page with pictures all over the place. It allows a gallery without diluting content.

  1. Select images that you would want to appear in the gallery and upload them to WordPress.
  2. Drag and drop an image carousel into the website using Elementor Pro.
  3. Click on the button that is labeled “add images” in the menu/customizable options spot.
  4. Choose the images you want to include.
  5. I recommend that you change the feature to only show 1 image at a time, at full size. these images can appear very small if you do not, and  they become barely noticable. Be sure to add a caption to the image and you are also able to cite the source of the image that you use.
  6. From there you can customize how long you want the image to appear, what the slide menu looks like, and what happens when you hover over an image (the caption can be made to pop up, cool!)

    Earlier this week I was having a terrible time understanding how to design and build my webpage. I had a blog, and a home page, both of which I had barely scratched the surface of using Elementor. I decided to check out your page for a point of reference.
    I was amazed and how much you had launched already. Aside from how well constructed it was, I was more impressed with the number of interactive tools you had used. In particular I found the carousel feature you used to be not only appealing, but appropriate for the content of your site.
    In the short period of time I spent clicking around your page, I learned several things that became the inspiration for my own site. For example, I learned that I needed to create multiple pages that need to stem off of my home page. I learned that Elementor had a ton to offer that I hadn’t even begun to explore. Overall, you really inspired me to dive in. I think your 6th graders are going to enjoy what you have built.
