The Best and Easiest Way to Create Content Carousels Ever
We have taken carousel creation to the next level. With Carousel Anything, you can create carousels for any of your content. We’ve integrated into WPBakery Page Builder to bring you a very flexible, very lightweight and very intuitive carousel creation system. Change paddings, margins virtually any design element for your carousel.
We’ve integrated Owl Carousel into our plugin for the ultimate device support. Carousel Anything is responsive and touch enabled. In touch devices, you can drag and swipe the carousel to move it.
We have just added a new feature: Carousel Posts. Easily create carousels from your different post types. You can filter them so you can create a carousel that displays only blog posts of a certain category or tag; or if you have a meet the team plugin, you can create a carousel of your team members. We’ve also included 2 designs: display your posts in a clean plain layout, or a more unique design where your featured image is used as a background.
You can create any carousel. Here are some ideas of what you can do:
- Feature & icon boxes,
- Latest blog posts,
- Hero areas,
- Image sliders,
- Sliders with content,
