Custom Slider (Pro Only)
This is a custom slider where you can specify your own images and captions without being bound to a category or posts. You can add as many slides as you want!

- When this option is selected, a new section with a button saying “Add new Slide” will be shown.
- Click “Add new Slide” and you will be presented will all the options for a new slide item.
- Upload an image, enter a heading, description, and absolute URL.
- You can rearrange the items to change the order in which the slides appear on the front end.
You can also enter a YouTube or Vimeo embed URL to create a video slide. If the video URL is entered, the image uploaded will be ignored and the slide will display the video. The caption (heading, description) will not show up for the video slide.
You will not need the embed URL in versions 3.0+ - you can simply use the main YouTube or Vimeo video link.
Use Full Image Size: By default, the slider resizes all photos to 1200×550. If you want to use your own custom image sizes, turn this option on. Make sure all the slides are the same size. This only applies to the custom slider
To find the "embed" URL for a YouTube video, click "Share", then click "Embed" and select/copy just the video URL shown in the code. For example: https://www.youtube.com/embed/4DSkhCa5Kpo.
