A content slider/carousel for contao based on kenwheelers slick carousel.


We moved away from slick slider to tiny slider (see https://github.com/heimrichhannot/contao-tiny-slider-bundle) because it doesn't have a dependency to jQuery. We're currently looking for a successor for maintaining the bundle. If you're interested, don't hesitate to contact us via GitHub issue or mail.

The bundle has no default styling for slick slider. If your want to use the slick default theme, please see the slick theme section.


  1. Create an slick configuration under System -> Slick configuration. Please consider the slick-carousel documentation for information about the different config options.
  2. Select the created config in a slick frontend module, a slick content element or in your list config (Misc -> Add slick).

Slick theme

If you want to use the default theme comes with the slick carousel, you need to add the slick theme css. If you use slick together with encore bundle, you just need to select the contao-slick-bundle-theme entry within layout or page setting. If you use the default contao asset managment, you need to add the slick-theme.css to the global asset array:

$GLOBALS['TL_USER_CSS']['slick-theme'] = 'assets/slick/slick/slick-theme.css';
