How to Add Interactive Content Switcher to your WordPress Website

Content Switcher

Nowadays, it is essential to keep your web content not only readable but also interactive. In today’s world, the interactiveness of your website plays a vital role in attracting visitors and getting more clicks and rankings.

Most of the website visitors look for the information that is important to them and then just leave. No one is interested in reading lengthy content unless it is presented in an interactive manner.

So to increase our website visitors and raise our brand value, our primary focus should be to provide them with all the necessary content presented in an interactive and styled manner.

Suppose you have a different version of the same information that you want to present to the client, but you do not want to display it one after the other, instead of this you want to provide a way to the user to switch between the similar content at one place. You can achieve this by using the Content Switcher widget, through which you can switch between multiple products at a single place.

Imagine you are creating a Restaurant website as there will be lots of food items with a varying price range. Incorporating the entire items list on a single page is not a user-friendly option, as it will become difficult for the user to scroll down to each item and then make a choice.

To reduce the user’s scroll difficulty for the lengthy landing pages, we can add a content toggler to switch between two or more elements. The EAE – Content Switcher is one such element, which will allow you to achieve this in an attractive and beautiful manner.

Note: To use EAE – Content Switcher, you need to install the Elementor Addon Elements plugin on your WordPress website. Here is the sneak peek of what we will be achieving
