FAQ

I do not see the button to add this into the content. Where is it?

Click on the HTML tab in the editor and you will see it.

Where can I get support for this plugin?

You can submit any issues/feedback: http://sandboxdev.com/forums/forum/sdac-post-slideshows

Do all slideshows have the same width/height?

No. You can easily change the size of your slideshow for each post by adjusting the general settings within the post.

How many slides can we have?

As many as you want – just add more as needed.

Can I use just images in the slideshow or just text?

Yes – just fill in the information you need when creating a slide and set the appropriate widths in the general settings.

How can I use this within my WordPress template?

You can use the WordPress function do_shortcode([post_slideshow post_id=”1″]) (Post ID is the ID of the post you want to use)
