Use the Glider WPBakery addons to add Slider

The Glider is a set of two WPBakery Page Builder addons for a slide and slideset creation. These are easy to use and flexible elements that can make your site more engaging and interactive. Clear settings allow you to configure the slider and get the desired result in a short time.

The Glider plugin provides two slider elements with different types of displays to suit all your needs and wishes.
