Good Slider


This plugin provides a very simple slider block which is based on Swiper.
As of now, the plugin does not provide any slider configuration in the editor UI but provides many PHP filter hooks to change its behaviour.

The plugin is used in some custom themes and through it’s PHP configuration it’s perfect for a locked-in design (eg agency, clients).
Through the filters it’s also very easy to extend in your own functions.php file.


  • Insert the Good Slider block into your content.
  • Add slides to your slider and insert any block you like into a slide.
  • The slide block also allows setting a background color and text color, so you don't need a group/cover block inside.


This plugin provides 2 blocks.

  • Good Slider A carousel slider
  • Slider Item A carousel slider


Minimal Requirements

  • PHP 7.4 or newer
  • WordPress 6.0 or newer

Automatic Installation

We recommend installing the plugin extension through the WordPress Backend.

Manual Installation

  1. Upload the contents of the plugin zip file to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.


How can I change the swiper arguments (like slides shown etc)

As of now, there are no configuration UIs in the editor.
You can use the good-slider/swiper-options filter hook to set the swiper configuration for a specific block instance.
All the available arguments are documented in the Swiper documentation.

Can I use my own enqueued Swiper script?

Yes you can use the good-slider/swiper-script-handle filter hook to change the name of the swiper script handle.

Can I use more Swiper options?

By default, a stripped-down version of Swiper is enqueued, which only includes the most commonly used modules (A11y, Keyboard, Lazy, Navigation, Pagination).
You can use the good-slider/swiper-script-handle filter and set it to good-slider-swiper-full to enqueue the full Swiper bundle with all modules or you can use or own (see above).

Will there be a UI for the block in the editor?

Yes, we are working on exposing the most common configuration options (slides shown, spacing, colors,…) via the block’s settings.
