If you want to display multiple pieces of content within a limited space on your web page then you may want to use a carousel.

By adding a Divi carousel to your website it allows you to display multiple images, posts, videos, products, or any other content in an automatically rotating gallery.

What Is a Divi carousel?

A Divi carousel is an advanced style of a slider that can display multiple slides of content at once that will then automatically scroll from one image set to the next. Unlike a standard Divi slider module, a Divi carousel allows you to display any number of the previous and next slides in the carousel set and often has a more realistic 3D design.

A Divi carousel is different from a Divi slider as the slider only displays one slide of content at a time, whereas carousels display multiple slides at once.

Divi does not have a carousel module by default.

There are many types of carousels available for Divi including:

  • Product carousels
  • Video carousels
  • Image & logo carousels
