JSON generator

In this article

☝️ Note: This generator is only available in the Pro version.

With this generator you can show datas coming from a JSON code, which can be in a file or you can enter the JSON code into an input field too.

Tutorial

1
Creating a new dynamic slide

To get started, go to any Slider Settings page and add a new dynamic slide. Choose JSON.

2
Configuring the generator

Set up your generator. Choose the settings you want. Popular options you probably want to configure: category where your content will be pulled from, the number of slides you want to have, the ordering of the content.

You can also click on the View Records button to see the data you'll be creating your slide with.

When you're done, click on Add.

3
Editing the dynamic slide

After you saved your generator, you'll be redirected to the Slide Editor to set up the look of your slide. You can create your content by using variables.

Not sure what are the variables or how to use them? Learn how to work with variables.

JSON from url

Creates slides from the JSON in the given URL.

Configuration

You can use these options to set what you want your generator to show.

Filter

JSON or XML url

Url to the file or webpage containing the JSON code or the url of an XML file.

Data type

Select wether you are using JSON or XML.

Level separation

JSON/XML codes can be customized to have many different levels. From a code it is impossible to know from which level do you want to use the given datas on the different slides, so you have to select that level from this list.

Remove levels from result

This feature was made for similar reasons, than the previous one, that JSON/XML codes can be customized to have many different levels. In some cases you are starting out from unnecessary levels and you cannot access the datas you want to without removing some of these levels.

Sadly this is quite complicated to be able to access any level structure, so the best we can suggest is to try to go through all variations of 'Level separation' and 'Remove levels from result' to see which one would give you the result you are looking for.
