How to Build Pure CSS Slider with Bullets and Arrows

To load the CSS slider on your website or webpage, You need to add the style.css file into your HTML document to make work.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css">

To create the image slider you need to define a container and place all the code inside it.

<div class="container">

Let’s take a look at the markup for creating arrow navigation for the slider.

  <input type="radio" id="i1" name="images" checked />
  <input type="radio" id="i2" name="images" />
  <input type="radio" id="i3" name="images" />
  <input type="radio" id="i4" name="images" />
  <input type="radio" id="i5" name="images" />

Next, we will define each image and for this, We will create a separate div with a unique ID.

  <div class="slide_img" id="one"> 
  	<img src="http://www.bhmpics.com/wallpapers/little_pony_art-800x480.jpg">
    <label class="prev" for="i5"><span>&#x2039;</span></label>
    <label class="next" for="i2"><span>&#x203a;</span></label>
  <div class="slide_img" id="two"> 
  	<img src="https://preview.ibb.co/e5OShF/cropped_800_480_111290.jpg " >
    <label class="prev" for="i1"><span>&#x2039;</span></label>
    <label class="next" for="i3"><span>&#x203a;</span></label>
  <div class="slide_img" id="three"> 
  	<img src="http://wallpaperswide.com/download/up_house-wallpaper-1280x800.jpg">
    <label class="prev" for="i2"><span>&#x2039;</span></label>
    <label class="next" for="i4"><span>&#x203a;</span></label>
  <div class="slide_img" id="four"> 
  	<img src="http://wallpaperswide.com/download/big_hero_6_baymax-wallpaper-1152x720.jpg">
    <label class="prev" for="i3"><span>&#x2039;</span></label>
    <label class="next" for="i5"><span>&#x203a;</span></label>
  <div class="slide_img" id="five"> 
  	<img src="http://www.wallpapereast.com/static/images/toys-wallpaper-hd-16339-17046-hd-wallpapers.jpg">
    <label class="prev" for="i4"><span>&#x2039;</span></label>
    <label class="next" for="i1"><span>&#x203a;</span></label>

Finally, We will have dots navigation and we did create by using the following code.

<div id="nav_slide">
    <label for="i1" class="dots" id="dot1"></label>
    <label for="i2" class="dots" id="dot2"></label>
    <label for="i3" class="dots" id="dot3"></label>
    <label for="i4" class="dots" id="dot4"></label>
    <label for="i5" class="dots" id="dot5"></label>

That’s It. Your simple and nice looking slider ready to use. You can refer to demo and download source.
