Cyclone Slider
[resolved] Adding a slideshow onto the sidebar (4 posts)

    I was wondering if it's possible to add the slideshow to a sidebar. I tried adding the same code that I use to add it onto a page in a text widget. It doesn't work. It appears just like ordinary text like below:

    [cycloneslider id="name-here"]

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cyclone-slider/

    Thanks

    I got it :) I just posted the cycloneslider id onto a page previewed it, checked out the source code, copied the relevant part and placed it in a text widget. This topic can be closed as it's resolved :)

    Hello lobobrandon,

    You can actually add this code in functions.php

    add_filter('widget_text','do_shortcode');

    That will allow you to use

    [cycloneslider id="name-here"]

    inside text widgets.

    Cheers
