Convincing visitors to purchase products or services is not easy stuff in online. People consider a lot of checklists before emptying their pockets. WordPress logo slider plugin can help you build an awesome logo for your site.
Having years of experience selling online, I found people greatly get persuaded when they find some of the established clients trust you or you have served one of the industry’s leading clients. If they can notice such a remarkable logo in the trustworthy section of your site, they don’t check anything else anymore. Many online forums are full of questions like “what is the best WordPress logo slider plugin to showcase client logo?” or “how to add a WordPress logo slider in a business or agency website that can boost your brand trust?”.
To answer the first question, I developed GS Logo Slider WordPress Plugin a couple of months ago but did get the chance to write an answer for the second question. But today, I’ve propelled and tied hardly myself with the chair I am sitting on.
Adding a logo slider in WordPress is pretty easy. It doesn’t require you to write a single line of code to implement a logo showcase where you can easily present the widely known logos of clients, partners, affiliates, and other companies you served satisfactorily. Let’s dig in.
How to Add WordPress Logo Slider Without Coding
Installing a plugin is the best way to add a logo slider to a WordPress website. There are many incredible WordPress logo slider plugins you can choose from. But, researching your WordPress user experience, I pick a free logo slider plugin, GS Logo Slider, for demonstration purposes.
If you don’t know what the frontend of the plugin looks like, don’t worry before taking you through the process, have a look at how the logo slider output will be.
Step 01: Install Plugin
Installing GS Logo Slider plugin is the same as you install the other WordPress plugins on your website. If you are accustomed to installing plugins from the backend. Head to the Plugins > Add New and search for GS Logo Slider. The plugin comes up as the following screen, click the Install Now button and select Activate Plugin when the subsequent screen comes up.
If you want to install the plugin via FTP, download GS Logo Slider for WordPress manually from the plugin directory and place the gs-logo-slider folder inside the /wp-content/plugins/ directory. And login to your WordPress backend and active the plugin for the Plugins
Step 02: Plugin Overview
When you successfully install this plugin, you can notice a setting titled GS Logos will be added in the left WordPress settings. From this setting, you add, update, delete, and control all the essential settings that help you to display your client logo slider elegantly.
Step 03: Add a logo
To Add logos inside WordPress has been super easy via this plugin. Click on the Add New Logo, and add the logo title and the logo image in any image format in the text area, which will automatically be added to your logo slider after you click the publish button. Don’t forget to add a category, and it helps you to present category-specific logos in your site frontend logo carousel.
Step 04: Manage Category
After the Add New Logo, Logo Category comes. You can create a new category from this section and update and delete it according to your need. The logo items get placed in the slider based on which category is selected.
Step 05: Slider Settings
The logo settings section is an important part of this plugin. You can define how the logo slider will behave on your website. To give a supreme privilege over the appearance of your logo gallery slider, the plugin comes with three tabs glutted with all the essential settings you need.
The General Setting tab includes slider Direction, slider speed, autoplay option, infinite loop, stop on hover, ticker mode and pause ticker on hover. The Direction option helps you display the slider horizontally and vertically. Sliding Speed controls the slider’s sliding speed. Autoplay Pause indicates the slider pausing time, and Infinite Loop lets you decide whether the slider will loop infinitely or get stopped after the first rolling. Stop on hover stops the slider to the slider when the visitor places the mouse cursor on it. Ticker Mode allows you to turn your logo slider into like a news ticker, and Pause Ticker on Hover stops the slider ticker from moving around when you hover over a mouse.
Control Setting is another crucial part of this logo showcase plugin, with options like Next/Previous, Pagination, Play Pause, Logo Title, and Clickable Logo. From the Next/Previous option, you can enable or disable slider navigational handles easily. Pagination remains turned off by default. When you turn it on, it will chunk down the logos by diving into four visible paginations, allowing your visitors to view any of the logo chunks by clicking on any paginations. Play Pause handles whether your logo slider or not, If you need to show your logo title and make them clickable, you enable them from Logo Title and Clickable Logos Options
In my view, the Style Setting is the essential part of this plugin. If you can’t adjust this plugin with your existing WordPress theme, you’ll never use the plugin on your website, right? With these settings, you can define logo item width, height, displaying style, margin, slider width, maximum logo number, minimum logo number, and how many logo move in a single transition.
Other Features If You Care
GS Logo Slider plugin is lightweight and will never become the reason behind that makes your site slow. As I explained, the plugin is easy to install and use, enabling a high-quality logo slider within seconds. The plugin is equipped with a shortcode builder that can build a logo showcase carousel anywhere in your WordPress post and pages using the shortcode [gs_logo]
The shortcode accepts numerous attributes and helps you to customize the sliding interface without writing code.
You might be thinking. As I developed the GS Logo plugin, I demonstrated the whole process with this plugin, right? The thinking is partly true. Before developing this plugin, I performed about weeks of research on the existing plugin and came up with a unique idea that I implemented to make it professional and robust. So, I believe this is the best logo slider plugin in the directory, so I preferred to pick it as a demonstration :). You can create an awesome logo slider within a minute using the plugin.
