The Slider

The Slider is a catchy featured content slider ideal for showcasing your products and services.

How do I include the slider on my pages?

To test the set up, include the short code [the-slider] anywhere on a page. This should show you the demo slider.

If that works, we can move to the next step. You can add parameters to the short code to control the behaviour of the slider, the syntax is as follows:

[the-slider parameter1=value1,parameter2=value,paramter3=value3,...] The parameters

  • cat: post category from which to select the posts
  • max: maximum number of posts to include


  • [the-slider cat=3,max=4] will include 4 posts of post category 3 in the slider

Can I include the slider in my theme?

To include the slider in your theme, include the following code:

You can use the same parameters as described here above and pass them as an array to the function. So for example to display 4 posts from category 3 in the slider, you can use:

3,"max" => 4)); ?>

Can I include the slider multiple times on a page?

Yes, absolutely, you can put the slider short code anywhere on a page and multiple times, using different parameters for each slider.

How do I add images?

Simply set a featured image for your post. The slider will pick up the featured image and display it. Best sizes are 400px by 250 px.
