There are 5 code snippets above, expand the links to see the code, they are a plain carousel slider, a slider with navigation and indicators and carousel with text captions, the PHP counter increment variable is used throughout.
Ensure you have unique IDs per slider.

Add more options to the slider either via data attributes or Javascript.

    On the one with thumbnails, why isn’t the first thumbnail active? It only becomes active once all the slide loop around.

    For example if we have multiple repeaters on the same page in flexible content and we need unique ID’s for each block

    Great tutorial. If we want to use the element twice (ACF page builder) in the same page how can we do that? The data-target will use the IDs and it wont work. Could you please give me some guidance?
