Can a Slideshow be Responsive?

Can a slideshow like this one be “responsive” or am I just being old-fashioned again?


I have several concepts that I want users to see on my home page which I feel would help promote my new business. In the past, a slideshow like shown above would be a great way to get those concepts into people’s heads quickly and entice them to click and do a deeper dive.

But can this work in the responsive realm? :confused:

Try looking at - I can’t get at the site from here in work, but it’s one of the bigger providers of hosting for slide show content

I think you misunderstood me.

What I am calling a “slide-show” is an embedded feature that rotates between 4-5 slides/images/whatever like in the radio station link above.

I believe is for like PowerPoint presentations.

I Googled for “Responsive Slideshow” and the first three hits all had demos which work fine?

Is there any other problems that these demos do not satisfy?


Got you.

Yes they can do that. A place I see them all the time, is on

bxslider is a responsive slideshow that is pretty easy to implement but does rely on jquery.

Or for modern browsers a css only version.

Google has many more like this so find one you like and try it out :slight_smile:

The question was whether or not a “slideshow” can be considered “responsive” - not if they can be found on Google. :wink:


I am afraid I do not understand your reply.

As mentioned the first three Google results each demonstrated responsive slideshows, complete with source which could have been cut, pasted, inserted into your website in a matter of minutes. Responsive slideshow problem solved. Move on and get the site published.

Why the nit-picking response when people are trying their best to help?

You’re not listening or understanding my perspective.

I Googled this stuff last night BEFORE I posted here.

I saw slideshows that could adapt image size.

But I was asking if people think a slideshow - read between the lines - is a good idea.

Part of me thinks that slideshows are “old world” and I am trying to better understand this modern world that is consuming my old world.

You are way too literal sometimes. Developers!

if I have 4-5 points that I’d like to make on my “responsive” site, maybe there is a better way to accomplish the same thing without a slideshow?

Or, maybe a slideshow is still a good idea.

That is what I am trying to figure out.

So don’t snap at me by telling me that Google can solve all of my issues, because it can’t.

Your thread is asking whether they can be responsive. Not whether they are a good idea. We answered the former.

So excuse us if we are thinking “literally”. Should have figured that we weren’t being asked a straight question and tried to think abstract with your seemingly direct question :wink: .

Slideshows have a lot of issues -
