7. Slideshows

Uses the Meta Slider plugin.

Create a slideshow by going to Meta Slider.

Click the “+” button to create a new slideshow. A new empty slideshow will be created. All of your slideshows will be listed as tabs across the top of the page. The slideshow settings are listed on the right hand side of the page, and the slides for each slideshow will be displayed in the main area of the page.


To add a slide to the slideshow, click the “Add Slide” button. The default Media Library interface will appear where you can upload new slide images or select existing images from your media library. Hold down CTRL to select multiple images.

After clicking ‘Add to slider’ the slides will be added to the slideshow. You can drag and drop the slides to reorder them. The slideshow settings are listed on the right hand side of the page. You can choose the slideshow type from Flex Slider, R. Slides, Nivo Slider or Coin Slider. Different options will be enabled/disabled based on your selected slideshow type.


To preview the slideshow click the ‘Save & Preview’ button.

Once you are happy with your slideshow, scroll down to the ‘Usage’ section (bottom right) and copy the provided shortcode. The shortcode can be pasted directly into any Post or Page.
