22 February 2023

New features

09 February 2023

  • Enabled initial support for forthcoming Iconic gallery stack from Instacks


  • Adapted behaviour of ‘Enable cover mode’ (for image slides) to use CSS as opposed to the inbuilt Splide javascript approach

Bug fixes

  • Fix for issue when using Fade type along with a particular combination of other settings


07 November 2022

New features

  • Option to add a negative number for the speed in the Autoscroll settings to scroll in the opposite direction (though note you will likely want to set the mode to Carousel so that there are slides for it to naturally move to)
  • Option to set the pagination indicators to reflect the number of available moves as opposed to the number individual slides
  • Support for Feeds stack (from Weaver’s Space). Can add a Feeds stack directly into Splider stack. To then use: add the desired Splider slide type into the Feeds stack and build out the desired template structure. This approach will create a new slide for every feed item.


  • Updated underlying splide and extension libraries to the latest versions

Bug fixes

  • Redundant navigation arrows now correctly marked as disabled in the HTML on load (and therefore can be hidden as expected)


22 July 2022

  • Option to 'fill space' for video slides when a slider height is specified (html / self-hosted videos only)

Initial release


14 April 2022

New features

  • Improved compatibility with Stacks


10 May 2021

New features

  • Option to layout slides in a grid format
  • Option to add a hash value to any slide allowing that slide(s) to be made active via the url
  • New setting for Data Attributes. This is an Advanced feature and allows you to pass in additional Splide options that are not available via the Splider stack settings.


12 February 2021

New features

  • Option to add content when using the Image Slide. You can add content below the image or over it. Positioning over requires the use of ‘cover’ mode in the parent Splider stack (and most likely the setting of a height value or ratio). This gives the same result as using a background image in a regular Splider slide but lets you take advantage of lazy loading the image and seo benefits from alt tag etc.
  • Support for a new child stack to allow easy application of colours from the Source micro framework (requires Source). View new demo.


05 February 2021


  • Moved the Splider js to bottom of page for improved page loading speeds
  • Grouped Image and Video controls separately in Edit mode


16 October 2020

New features

  • Grab cursor used if Allow Drag is enabled.


21 September 2020

New features

  • Option to set a custom easing value (for the slide movement) - in Advanced settings. You can use cubic bezier values or standard functions such as linear, ease-in-out etc.
  • Option to reduce the size/scale of inactive slides (so that active slide is larger)
  • Option to control the speed that styling transitions are applied
  • Option to ‘update on move’ which sets the active class prior to the slide moving (as opposed to after it has moved). This will affect when any styling effects are applied.


17 September 2020

New features

  • Added ability to set a Splider ID that can be used to target the slider via javascript (for advanced users only). See API documentation on the Knowledge Base for more information.


15 September 2020

New features

  • Option to link 2 Spliders in Sync mode (i.e. to use 1 Splider as the navigation for another!). Download new project file from Knowledge Base to see it in action.
  • Option to add a 'Styling Breakpoint’ value with additional options to set different values for the slide padding and navigation arrows above and below the breakpoint
  • Option to remove the default border radius on the slides (without first having to ‘style slides’)

12 May 2020

New features

  • Video child stack. You can now add Youtube, Vimeo or self-hosted videos. Note: If using only video slides then you will need to add a height value or an aspect ratio value.
  • Video options. If you have added video slides then you need to 'Enable video' in the parent stack and there you can control autoplay, mute, loop and hiding controls
  • Styling options. You can now style the background, border and opacity of inactive and active slides!
  • Height ratio. New option to set the height / shape of slides by using an aspect ratio. This is especially useful if building a video or image slider. Also useful for 'top to bottom' slides.
  • Cover mode. Option to set any Splider Image slide stacks to 'cover' the available space. A great option to use in conjunction with the height ratio option for image slide shows.

07 May 2020

New features

  • Option to disable 'pause on hover' for autoplay slides

30 April 2020
