iFeature Slider Options:
This options tab is for configuring the iFeature Slider if you have enabled it on your page using the Page Options tab, and replaces the iFeature Slider options tab in the iFeature Pro theme options page. These settings offer full control over the look and configuration of the iFeature Slider, including the size, whether or not it generates slides from blog posts or custom slides, animation type, and much more. Below you will find a detailed explanation of each option.
Select Slider Size – This option allows you to select whether you want your slider to be full width or half-width, which automatically sizes the slider to fit within the page content depending on your sidebar configuration. (note: if you use the half-width slider it will remain above the page content and cannot be dragged above or below any other elements. If you want to move the slider above or below other elements you need to use the full-width slider).
Select Slider Type – This option is for selecting the source of your feature slides: blog posts or custom slides. For more information about these two kinds of slider configurations, please refer to the “Using the iFeature Slider” documentation page.
Blog Post Category – If you are using “Blog Posts” as your Slider Type, use this drop down menu to select the category you wish the slides to be called from. You can select any of your custom categories, or simply select “All” to call from your latest posts.
Custom Slide Category – If you have selected “Custom Slides” as your Slider Type, you can select the category you want the slides to be called from. “Default” is the default category, which is the category every custom slide is placed under if a custom category is not specified.
Number of Featured Blog Posts – This option only pertains to slides generated from blog posts. Enter the number of slides you want to appear into this text input box and update the page. The default number for blog posts is five.
Slider Height – If you wish to customize your iFeature Slider’s height, you may do so with this option. The default height is 330 pixels.

Select Slider Animation Type – This option is for selecting the animation style you want to use for that page. There are currently 15 choices: Random (default), Slice Down, Slice Down-Left, Slice Up, Slice Up-Left, Slice Up-Down, Slice Up-Down Left, Fold, Fade, Slide-In Right, Slide-In Left, Box Random, Box Rain, Box Rain-Grow, Box Rain-Reverse and Box Rain-Grow-Reverse.
Select Slider Navigation Type – This option is for selecting the navigation type you want to use with the slider. There are three choices: dots (default), thumbnails and none.
Select Slider Caption Style – Use this option to configure the slider caption (title and text) style you wish to use. You have four choices: bottom (default), left, right, and none (disables the caption bar on all slides).
Navigation Arrows – This option will hide the navigation (left and right) arrows from appearing on the slides.
Navigation Auto-Hide – By default the navigation arrows only appear when a user mouses over the slides. Enabling this option will cause the navigation arrows to always appear.
