  38. Hey I noticed you put -10 on your margins, but is the margin 10 on some other setting? is there a way to set that setting to zero or is it just the default for wordpress pages? i could never find the margins being 10 on any settings i looked through. kinda annoying.

  39. Thanks sir

    Thanks so much for the well-organized video (-; One thing that you didn't mention was cross-platform compatibility. That is what landed me on your page. Google slides work well on desktops but look horrible on mobile. I will test out your solution. Take care (-;

  58. Diario segreto di un balconiere

    Thank you man, for this great tutorial! Very well explained, but I've got a question for you: according to you does it have a sense to create a slider for a mobile use? Cause if I fill the slider with vertical images, suiting with mobile format, it's awful if I see it on the computer. How can I solve this problem? Thank you and…you earned a follower 😉

  59. Sonia Frontera

  63. Hello! I have a little problem with SmartSlider. I made some nice slides, and they are very cool on my big resolution desktop. But when i view the site from my laptop, or any other small resolution desktop, the slides are in a very strange format. Any solution on that please?

  64. Hey Dale, great video as usual. Could you please show how to make the flipping tiles? The ones that flip when you hover a mouse on them to show the information on the back?

  65. Smon Rodjanapat

    awesome. It is helpful.

  66. ꧁꧂Ꮆ Ꮛ Ꮼ Ꮧ Ꮆ Ꮛ꧁꧂

  69. Massay jean michel

    love your videooooo , you save me. i know smart slider but i dont know to use it. its very good. but at 7:27 i find another way about margin. In the block where I put my slider, the layout of this block, column spacing, I put no deviation and that automatically removes the margin.

  70. Massay jean michel

    using a template its very very pratical. thanks again
