How to make Pure CSS Text Slider
We simply first need to define the main wrapper and we have an ID
slides is our main wrapper. It will hold the rest of HTML.
Next, we do define the radio buttons which handle the slider left or right functions. WE have four slides so here we will set four radio button with each unique ID.
<div id="slides"> <input checked type="radio" name="slider" id="slide1" class="set" /> <input type="radio" name="slider" id="slide2" class="set" /> <input type="radio" name="slider" id="slide3" class="set" /> <input type="radio" name="slider" id="slide4" class="set" /> </div>
Just right below the radio buttons, we define a class mask and an inner div with class overflow. Both these will help later one handle with CSS.
Now we only add the four sliders and what we do need to add four divs with each class name slide. Inside these divs, we will place our text.
<div class="mask"> <div class="overflow"> <div class="slide">Slide One</div> <div class="slide">Slide Two</div> <div class="slide">Slide Three</div> <div class="slide">Slide Four</div> </div> </div>
Just right below the div class name mask, we will add controls. These controllers allow us to change the slide on click. The controller div have four labels. These labels handle with the radio button we define above.
<div id="controls" onclick=""> <label for="slide1"></label> <label for="slide2"></label> <label for="slide3"></label> <label for="slide4"></label> </div>
