Add this attribute
Description
Name
fs-sliderdots-element

Value
slider-nav
copy icon
Defines the Slider Nav element that wraps the new custom Slider Dots.

If you want, you can use a div block with the fs-sliderdots-element="slider-nav" attribute and place it anywhere on the page.

It's recommended to place it inside the Slider itself to make sure the Auto-Play stops when hovering (this is a native feature from Webflow, it pauses Auto-Play when the user hovers anywhere on the Slider).
Using the native Slide Nav:

to be the custom slider dot content of its Slide

Add this attribute
Description
Name
fs-sliderdots-element
copy icon
Value
content
copy icon
This element will be used as the custom slider dot content. Each Slide's "content" element will be used as that Slide's custom slider dot. This will create a unique slider dot for each Slide in your Slider. Do not set the content element to display: none. The content elements must be visible so Attributes can place them inside the slider-nav.

Important if using together with CMS Slider: It is required that this content attribute is inside the CMS Collection List. The content attribute can not be placed inside the slider element because CMS Slider will remove all content inside the static slider. The content attribute must be placed inside each CMS Collection Item that will populate the static slider.

By default, a ".fs-sliderdots_active" CSS class will be added to the custom dots when the correspondent slide is active.
