  • Standard Mode: The standard mode carousel is a slideshow for cycling through a series of content.
  • Ticker Mode: This is the continuous sliding mode in the loop, with no pause. You can set the speed and if the slider pauses on hover.

(3) Category Column(s): Set number of column(s) in different devices for responsive view. This option allows you to preset the number of categories visible with a particular device.
