Image with text slider 🔥

A guide to set up and customize an Image with text slider in Zest theme

The Image with text slider is a quick and interactive way to showcase content and information in carousel form with the image and video on your site.

This section lets you display your most outstanding and popular information or shout out about what's new with a call-to-action button.


  1. In the theme editor (Customize) > click Add section

  2. Select Image with text slider.

  3. Save.

Section settings


Adjust the Container type (Fixed width/ Full width/ Stretched width) of this section.

You can change the Image height (Adapt/ Small/ Medium/ Large), Image width (40%-80%), and Image position (Left/Right) to make it look reasonable with the text and your website layout.

The corresponding image will change when customers slide to another content.

Therefore, the setting allows you to make modifications to the slider:

  • Enable/ disable the Show pagination/ Show navigation/ Auto-rotates slides (the slideshow will slide automatically).

  • Set the duration time to change slides in Change slides every field from 2s-10s (Only works when you enable Auto-rotates slides)

  • Change the Desktop controls position to the Left/ Center/ Right and Pagination type (Dots/ Counter)


The section also lets you fill in the Slider description for customers using screen readers.
