Featured Articles PRO comes with a visual slider theme editor incorporated. This means that if the slider theme is enabled to be edited, you can create color/layout variation for the theme. This is useful especially if the theme you choose to use in your website doesn’t match the general color scheme used in your website.

To create new color schemes for existing slider themes, from plugin menu go to page Themes. You will see a list of all slider themes installed on your website. Please note that some themes may not allow this functionality, in this case you will see a message saying Not customizable. under the theme preview image.

If you would like to load a different slider to make the modifications, from Themes page open tab Preview settings and choose the slider that you want to load and the dynamic area you want to load it into.
