Block Toolbar

Click on the block to display the block toolbar. The Slideshow block offers the following options in its toolbar:

  • Alignment options: Allows you to align your slideshow to the center, wide width, or full width.

Block Settings

Every block has specific options in the editor sidebar and options found in the block toolbar. If you do not see the sidebar, click the ‘cog’ icon next to the Publish or Update button.


Enable this option to have your slideshow move between images automatically. When enabled, your slideshow will include a pause button allowing viewers to pause the slideshow. You can also select the length (in seconds) of the delay between automatic transitions.


Choose the effect you want for your slide transitions (Slide or Fade). This option can be updated for slideshows, even if the autoplay feature isn’t turned on.

Image Settings

This feature allows you to select the size of the images displayed in the slideshow.


The advanced tab lets you add a CSS class to your block, allowing you to write custom CSS and style the block as you see fit.
