Getting started on creating a WordPress Preloader using MAZ Loader

After you have installed MAZ Loader, you can navigate to the plugin’s page using the left side navigation bar by clicking on MAZ Loader > Create new Loader

On this page, you start adding content to your Preloader using the + Field button on the top left of the Builder. When you hover over the button, you will see the full list of available Fields that compose a Preloader.

Available Fields

The available fields you can choose from are the following:

  • Text
    • Allows you to add any text to your Preloader
  • Image
    • Gives you the ability to add any Images to your Preloader WordPress
  • Icon
    • You can add any Icons from a pre-defined list of SVG, GIFs or CSS Icons.
  • Progress Bar
    • Add a line that progresses from zero percent (0%) to a hundred percent (100%) as your page keeps loading. Additionally, you may add a text showcasing the percentage of your Preloader WordPress.
  • Percentage Counter
    • Display the progress of your Preloader in the text using a percentage from zero (0%) to a hundred (100%) percent.
  • Custom HTML
    • This field allows you to add any HTML / CSS as well as JavaScript by giving you more flexibility in adding unique content to your Preloader, such as videos and more!

In this example, you will create something rather simple, let’s say a text headline showcasing our Product, followed by our logo and finally a Progress Bar at the top of our WordPress Preloader.

Adding Fields to your Preloader

Let’s start by adding our Text Field that will show our Product name:
