Posts Carousel

Posts Carousel inserts a box into your web page in which blocks of information (images and text) are displayed, automatically or manually changing from one element to another through a fade animation.

In the Posts Carousel you can define the position of each one of the elements it contains (images, text and menu), its colors, the font used for the text and the time interval for the animation, making it a very adaptable product for different website designs.

Highlighting specific sections within a website can define whether these will be accessed by your users or will remain completely ignored;áthe most recently published articles, the featured products, or gallery images. Posts-Carrousel is a product that allows to increase the relevancy of your website sections in an attractive and functional way.

FEATURES
