First of all, it is necessary to mention that the UberTheme UB Content Slider Magento 2 module is fully responsive. It means that the content you promote will be displayed on all screen sizes equally great. Furthermore, you can place several blocks with sliders on a single page. And a slider can be added virtually anywhere with the help of another handy feature – widget module manager.

Of course, the UberTheme UB Content Slider Magento 2 extension supports multiple websites with all the consequences: you can customize blocks with content for each store view individually providing users from different countries with the corresponding content in their native languages.

And there are 4 different types of display. The module provides the ability to promote latest, hot, new, or random products. The New and Hot products display can be fully customized within the admin page. Furthermore, you can even manage animation effects.

From the perspective of a store visitor, the UberTheme UB Content Slider Magento 2 extension supports touch events and the mouse slider features. Let’s dive deep under the hood of of the module and describe its backend appearance.

Backend

Let’s start our exploration from the Manage Sliders grid. It is available under Content -> UB Content Slider -> Manage Sliders. The grid consists of the following columns:

  • ID – the UberTheme UB Content Slider Magento 2 extension provides each slider with an ID number;
  • Title – every slider gets a name;
  • Slider Key – an URL key;
  • Store View – a corresponding store view;
  • Status – each slider can be enabled or disabled;
  • Created – day and time a slider was created;
  • Modified – the time of last modification;
  • Action – here, you can edit, delete, or manage slide items.

If you don’t need some of the mentioned above columns, you can easily hide them via the “Columns” dropdown. Also, note that it is possible to create custom grid views and save them. Moreover, if there are lots of sliders, you can apply filters to find the necessary one. As for mass actions, the UberTheme UB Content Slider Magento 2 module provides the ability to delete, disable, enable, or edit several sliders simultaneously.

The Manage Sliders page also allows you to add a new slider. Hit the appropriate button on the right above, and you will be redirected to a new page, where basic information can be specified: slider title, key, store view, description, and status.

Save the slider and return to the previous grid. Here, in the Action column, you should select “Manage slide items”.

Let’s describe the Manage Slide Items screen using the example of the already existing slider filled in with content. All slides (images or videos) are gathered in a grid that contains the following columns:

  • ID – each slider gets an ID number;
  • Slider – video or image, etc.;
  • Title – you specify it while adding a new slide;
  • Image – preview image;
  • Status – enabled/disabled;
  • Created – day and time of creation;
  • Modified – day and time of modification;
  • Sort Order – specify it in slide settings;
  • Action – edit or delete.

As for other page properties, they are absolutely the same as in case of the previous grid: mass actions, filters, and custom views.

While adding a new slide or editing the existing one, you have to deal with the following fields:

  • Title – specify a slide title to be able to find it in the grid;
  • Shown In Slider – select whether it is an image or a video;
  • Link – make a slide clickable by placing a link into it;
  • Link Target – specify a link target. You have 4 options to choose from: Blank, Self, Top, and Parent;
  • Content Type – it can be Image, YouTube Video, or Vimeo Video;
  • Video ID (or Image) – in case of both Vimeo and YouTube, you simply add a video ID. If your content type is Image – it is necessary to upload it;
  • Publish Time – time and date the slide will appear in the slider;
  • End Time – time and date the slide will disappear from the slider;
  • Description – you can add a short slide description here;
  • Status – enabled or disabled;
  • Sort Order – create a custom order for slides to be displayed.

Although the system with two grids – one with sliders and another with slides – seems to be less effective than a slider configuration section with several tabs, we think that it is more effective, because you can add an unlimited number of slides without turning a slider configuration section into a chaotic mess of images and videos.

Now, when you know that the backend interface of the UberTheme UB Content Slider Magento 2 module is user-friendly and powerful enough to create outstanding sliders, let’s look at the frontend appearance of the extension.

Frontend

This is how the image slider looks:

UberTheme UB Content Slider Magento 2 Extension Module Review

As for its behavior, it indicates what image from the row is displayed. Besides, it shows the sort order on the main image. And while thumbnails from the row below don’t display any information, the image that is currently displayed gets some new elements: name, description and the “View More” button. Remember we’ve just added a link in the backend slide configuration? It is used in the “View More” button.

Now, let’s pay attention to the video slider. Here is how it appears on the frontend:

In our case, the slider displays 2 videos simultaneously. The “View More” link is available beneath each video in addition to a slide name. Thus, the UberTheme UB Content Slider Magento 2 module displays two slides simultaneously, but it may vary depending on a screen size. The pagination is shown below.

As for product sliders, they have the following design:

Everything is intuitive, so even a child can create a stunning slider (if you provide him or here with great images and videos of course) with the help of the tool. As for the price of the Magento 2 module, it costs only $99, so don’t hesitate to give it a go – it will help you make your Magento 2 website more appealing to customers.
