A perfectly integrated slider, slide show, carousel, and gallery plugin will make your theme more engaging and effective for your users.

Four Slideshow Types

MetaSlider sliders, slideshows, and carousels feature four responsive slideshow types with 20+ transition effects: Flex Slider 2, Nivo Slider, Responsive Slides, Coin Slider. These sliders support image, photo, video (YouTube/Vimeo), layer, html, product, and post feed slides. Some slide types require MetaSlider Pro.

New Photo Gallery Experience

MetaSlider now features a new gallery experience that supports images and photos. With an easy drag and drop photo gallery builder, you can create a responsive and optimized photo gallery in seconds using the same WordPress Media Gallery images you are already using with MetaSlider sliders, slide shows, and carousels. The Meta Slider photo gallery can be added to any page using a simple shortcode, just like MetaSlider.

We are building the photo gallery following these principles:
* Fast – Using modern best practices, your responsive photo gallery will be faster than ever.
* SEO-focused – Search engines will love your photo gallery.
* Fully WCAG accessible – All users will be able to enjoy your responsive photo gallery.
* Easy to use, fun to master. With advanced photo gallery features for those who need them.

Our responsive photo gallery includes the easy to use features you would expect. You can create a photo gallery, add images to your gallery from the WordPress Media Library, drag and drop images and photos in your gallery to reorder, and add an image alt attribute to your images and photos to ensure that your gallery is SEO friendly. To make sure that your responsive photo gallery looks just right on your WordPress page or post, the Meta Slider gallery allows you to change the image and photo width, max width, min width, and spacing of your gallery.

The MetaSlider photo gallery also offers a distraction free fullscreen mode for gallery editing, and we will soon add to the photo gallery a dark mode and background color selection.

To add your responsive Meta Slider photo gallery to a page, simply click the “add to page” button in your gallery editor to generate a WordPress shortcode that you can drop onto any page or post.

The MetaSlider photo gallery is in development, and we would love to hear your feedback on the gallery and ideas for photo gallery features we should work on next.


In addition to creating traditional sliders and slideshows, MetaSlider can be used to build carousels that allow you to show multiple images at any one time. MetaSlider carousels are compatible with all slide types: image, photo, video (YouTube/Vimeo), layer, html, product, and post feed slides. They’re ideal for showing a list of your latest posts or to use as a “Featured Product” slider for your homepage.

Simple and Easy to Use

MetaSlider has a beautiful, intuitive interface that will let you create stunning slideshows with ease. MetaSlider’s simple, easy-to-use slider and gallery building interface allows you to build a beautiful image, photo, video (YouTube/Vimeo), layer, html, product, and post feed slider, slideshow, carousel and gallery that is fast and responsive. With MetaSlider’s drag and drop reordering for your slider, slideshow, carousel, and gallery, you can easily iterate on a design to find the perfect look for your site.

Our simple and intuitive interface is perfect for individual users, developers & clients!

Support for Every Type of Content

MetaSlider provides unrestricted support for your image and photo slider, slide show, carousel, and gallery, including captions, links, title texts and alt text. With the MetaSlider Pro add-on you can also add video (YouTube/Vimeo), layer, html, product, and post feed content to a slider, slide show or carousel.

You can use any combination of MetaSlider Pro slide types for sliders, slideshows, and carousels. For example you can have a slider with an image slide, a post feed slide (that can contain multiple posts), and a video slide. To create this simply add slides as you normally would, selecting the relevant slide type each time.

The Meta Slider gallery currently supports image and photo content that can be added directly from your WordPress Media Library.


This may be the most basic slide type, but it still makes a great impression on any website! Present your beautiful images to a stunning slider, slide show, carousel, or gallery. Image slides are a basic slide type included in Meta Slider. An image slide will display an image with a caption. You can optionally link the slide to a URL of your choice.

Add images to your slide shows directly from your WordPress media manager, add the captions you want, set SEO fields and adjust the settings to display the slideshow just how you like it. Take it further with MetaSlider Pro and use the Theme Editor to change the look of the navigation, the arrows, and the captions.


Use responsive image slides and filmstrip navigation to create a simple but effective slideshow to show off your beautiful photographs and other images. Add a photo lightbox plugin with our MetaSlider Lightbox add-on to let people view the image as large as possible.

Take your photo portfolio further with Thumbnail Navigation as part of MetaSlider Pro. Thumbnail navigation for photos adds a carousel row of thumbnails below your slider or slideshow. You can customize the photo thumbnails to optimize the most engaging experience for your site visitors.

Animated Layer Slides

With MetaSlider Pro you can create animated Layer Slides for your slider, slideshow, or carousel. Create CSS3 animated HTML Layer slides using the built in drag and drop editor. Meta Slider Layer Slides are ideal for easily creating eye catching slider presentations and slide shows using stunning effects with 50 animation options and a beautiful, easy to use interface. Layers can include text, html, images, photos, videos and even shortcodes! Layer Slide users also benefit from additional optimisation and customisation options, including using a video as the slide background and adjusting the padding and background colour of each layer.

Post Feed Slides

With MetaSlider Pro you can create Post Feed slides to automatically show your latest content, blog posts, events or WooCommerce products in your slider, slide show, or carousel. MetaSlider Post Feed slides dynamically pull in slides based on your WordPress posts, using the featured image as the slide. They are also commonly known as “Content Sliders”, “Featured Sliders”, “Post Sliders” or “Dynamic Sliders”.

The post feed slide settings allow you to control which post types you want to display, the order to display them in and to restrict the posts to certain tags or categories. You can customise the caption template with a selection of template tags including {title}, {excerpt}, {author} and {date}. As with all our other slide types a Post Feed slide can appear in combination with any other slide type.

Post Feed slides can be used to show one post at a time but they work particularly well in carousel mode (as above) allowing you to show off a large number of your latest posts in a small amount of space.

Video Slides

With MetaSlider Pro you can easily include responsive high definition YouTube & Vimeo videos in your slider, slideshow, or carousel. A video slide will display a video in your slide show directly from Vimeo or YouTube. The video will automatically pause if the user skips to the next slide.

Simply add the URL of your video to a YouTube or Vimeo slide and Meta Slider will add it to your slider, slideshow, or carousel. Either create a slide show full of you favourite videos or mix it in between slides of other types to get just the result that you want.

If you select the FlexSlider option with video slides you can take advantage of MetaSliders play/pause functionality. This means that you can have your slideshow autoplay but will pause when you set a video to play and carry on once the video has finished. You could even have the slider or slide show autoplay to give you a smooth, completely automatic presentation!

HTML Overlay Slides

With MetaSlider Pro you can create completely customized HTML slides using the inline editor. We’ve even built-in over 50 awesome CSS3 transitions!

External URL Slides

With MetaSlider Pro you can create External URL Slides to load images for your slider, slideshow, or carousel directly from non-WordPress sources, for example CDN’s or image hosts.

Sliders Make Any Site More Engaging

Portfolio Sites

Add some photos to your slider, slideshow, or carousel as layer slides, then add a layer covering the image set to a semi-transparent colour to give a fantastic overlay. Then add some text that animates in to give some details about your company. Select the stretch option so that your slider, slideshow, or carousel fills the screen to really make an impact. Underneath that, add an image slide showing some of your latest work. Add our MetaSlider Lightbox add-on plugin to let you zoom-in on the work. Or you could add a post slide in carousel mode, set to display a post type of your client with their logo as the featured image.

Photography Sites

Use image slides and filmstrip navigation to create a simple but effective slider or slideshow to show off your beautiful photographs and other images. Add a lightbox plugin with our MetaSlider Lightbox add-on to let people view the image as large as possible.

Online Store

With MetaSlider Pro, add a slider or slideshow with layer slides showing off your latest offers at the top and a carousel post slide at the bottom displaying your products post type. MetaSlider works nicely with Woocommerce and allows you to use information such as the product price in the post slide template.

News Site or Blog

With MetaSlider Pro, show off your featured story or use a Post Slide to show your latest posts with a slider, slideshow, or carousel.

Use simple image slides to show images relating to a featured story. Combine that with a slider or slide show, set to carousel mode, containing a post slide to display other stories. Use the Theme Editor to move and style the captions to fit your theme.

Optimized for Speed

MetaSlider is Fast – only the minimum JavaScript/CSS is included on your page to power your slider, slideshow, carousel, or gallery. We have optimized the Meta Slider plugin so that your images, photos, videos (YouTube/Vimeo), layers, html slides, products, and post feeds, load quickly without slowing down your website visitors’ experience.

Unsplash Integration

MetaSlider is integrated with Unsplash to access free images and photos via for your slider, slideshow, carousel, and gallery. Finding the right image or photo can be the hardest part of creating a compelling slider, slide show, carousel, or gallery, and MetaSlider makes this process easy for you by never leaving your WordPress plugin interface.

Responsive and SEO-optimized

MetaSlider is a responsive, SEO-optimized WordPress plugin that lets you create a slider, slideshow, carousel, and gallery in seconds that are responsive and SEO-optimized.

Your MetaSlider responsive slider, slideshow, carousel, or gallery will adapt to the width of the device they’re being displayed on, including desktop, mobile or tablet. The content will be responsive regardless of the type of content you use: image, photo, video (YouTube/Vimeo), layer, html, product, and post feed slides.

The Meta Slider SEO tab lets you set image title and alt text for your slides. The title text should provide additional information about the slide, whereas the alt text should be used to describe the image itself. This data allows search engines to ‘read’ your slides and helps with search engine rankings!

Powerful Editing Options

Template and Pattern Library

MetaSlider now includes access to the Extendify template and pattern library that can be accessed by clicking the „Library“ button in the menu bar of the editor. We provide a variety of templates and patterns to serve different use cases and are adding more templates every week. Click on features -> MetaSlider to see patterns that incorporate the MetaSlider block.

Note: Templates and patterns rely on blocks and styling applied by the Editor Plus plugin. The Editor Plus plugin is required when importing a template or pattern. If you uninstall Editor Plus, the templates and patterns will still display on your site, but the styling may be affected. Additionally, stock images included in the templates are hosted by Extendify. We recommend replacing the images or adding them to your media library directly.


MetaSlider uses a custom API to fetch templates and patterns from the Extendify template and pattern library. To improve the service and stability we store logs which may contain the following:

  • browser type
  • referring site
  • date and time of request
  • category selection or search term
  • anonymized IP address

API requests are only made when a user clicks on the Library button.

How do I include a slideshow in the header of my site?

It is almost perfect if you may adding an internal comment field for each slide.
2. 12. 2021
Seems like a good plugin, but I have not been using the Pro version long enough to be certain. And, I have not needed to test support to know how good they are.
10. 11. 2021
Meta-slider is my go-to slider plugin. It's far easier to use than other slider plugins I've tried. Service from the team is great; helpful and timely.
25. 10. 2021
Not happy that my clients site is asking us to upgrade the paid plugin but we don't have the correct access details as was set up by a previous web designer. Numerous requests to metaslider pro to resolve the issue have not been responded to. Very poor effort.

3.4 [04/01/17]

This is the first in a series of small updates which will eventually allow us to remove restrictions in the plugin which prevent us from implementing certain functionality, including:

  • Changing a slide image
  • Using unique captions when the same slide has been added to more than one slideshow
  • Adding the same slide to a slideshow multiple times
  • Duplicating slides and sliders
  • Drafting slides
  • Scheduling slides

We are releasing this update in a number of small stages due to the number of users MetaSlider has. We are being overly cautious to ensure it’s a smooth transition. This update does not make any major changes to the current plugin functionality, but it does put in place the „scaffolding“ code which we will rely on to implement further updates.
