    Hello Manuel, try switching the version of `Slider JS Library` in block settings or switch to `BX Slider` and enable `Use CSS`.
    Slider JS library: BX Slider or SlideJS.

    Do You have any errors when entering console in Your browser?

    Thanks for tour response, Kamil... I'm afraid I'm doing something wrong because I don't see the menu for change Slider JS Library. I remember to see it when I installed the plugin in both sites, but now I don't see it. If I search fot it in admin/search.php, can't find it. In code, i see there is no a settings.php file. Sorry for this silly question, but... How can I access that menu?

    You have to Turn on Editing Mode then click Gear icon near Block title and choose from drop down menu Configure Slider Block.

    Hi Kamil

    Is it possible to make a setting, so that the description of the slide is shown under the headline.
    Right now the description is only used in setup.

    Is it compatible with 3.9+ version of Moodle?

    Hi Kamil,
    I´ve installed slider with 3.9. Unfortunately the el.redrawSlider is not working f.e. when the drawer is showing up. So the slides are keeping their original size and a part of them is hidden. I am using boost and tryed to deactivate all css modifications. But that was not the problem.

    Hi Kamil, I've succesfully added the block to the default dashboard for all users, but the slider images used in the default dashboard block do not appear for users - slides only show up on a per-user basis. (if I add to my dashboard I see images).

    Is this expected?

    help solve the problem. The theme is installed by TREMA. No way can I set the slider to the top of all courses and the entire contents of the main page. I 've already gone through all the settings . it doesn't work out. The square with the block is at the bottom by default. how to fix it?
