    Hi ici,
    If You are using BX Slider JS You can add custom CSS in your theme settings:
    .block_slider .bx-wrapper img {
    margin: 0 auto;
    And the picture should be centered.

    Hello, all... I've tried this block in moodle 3.5 and moodle 3.8 and I can't get the images to be displayed on the screen, only the navigation arrows, as well as the button to configure the slider and add other images. The main setup menu and image upload works fine, but then images are not displayed.
    I tried it both on the 'my' page and in a course.
    In addition to this block, do I have to configure or install something else?
    Thanks in advence for your time...

    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.

    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.
