    Hi there,

    i created some banners on my subpages with generateblocks.
    Now i am looking for a good working slider block/plugin that i can put on the startpage that simple slides those banners (with an added link to the subpages).

    I currently tried out the media slider block by getwid – but this works only if you use the image function of the slider instead of a container background. Also it doesnt seem to work at all on tablet/mobile (the image doesnt scale).
    So i am asking myself if there is a block or plugin that simply makes existing content slide – without any other overloaded functions. Just the slide part and functions regarding that. But thats just a thought – but if you know something like that – let me know.

    So my overall question is:
    in your experience – what slider block or slider plugin or other slider solution works best with generateblocks?

    Hi Matthias,

    Our usual recommendation would be Smart Slider 3.

    See: https://smartslider3.com/blog/generatepress-slider/

    If you’d want something more lightweight, you might want to test and check out some other plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/carousel/

    Hope this answers you inquiry! Feel free to reach out if you’ll have any further questions. 🙂


    Thx Fernando,

    i will have a look. Smartslider3 seems to be out – as i would prefer a carousel that works as a gutenberg block – thats why i started with getwid media+slider block (which as i mentioned doesnt seem to be responsive).

    I will for now tryout Carousel Slider Block for Gutenberg as mentioned here and wp swiper which is based on swiperjs (which i already stumbled upon during my search).
    You can find them under the linked carousel tag in the wordpress repository.
