Support » Plugin: Slideshow » Trying to show an image above and below the slider widget

  • Hi there,

    I’m using this excellent slideshow as a widget on the sidebar of my blog. However I’m trying to add an image (as a title) above and below the slideshow.

    However when I do, my blog theme adds a divider between the slideshow and the images. I tried adding the slideshow using the shortcode, or using this code:
    <?php do_action(‘slideshow_deploy’, ‘6491’); ?>

    But when using this code I couldn’t get the slideshow to display at all. Is this not possible from within a widget?

    Have included a link to my site – Shop problem

    Would appreciate any advice, thanks!

  • Just to make sure I’m understanding what you want,

    You want the “adopt a lobster – click here” image to be above the “Little shop of Lobsters” heading and then have the slideshow.

    Or you want to get rid of the “Little shop of Lobsters” heading text and insert an image in it’s place?

    Thanks for the reply Ryan.

    Sorry it was quite unclear, I wanted another image (not currently showing in the sidebar) which is just an image heading, to be displayed directly above the slideshow. Then I wanted to include an image below (top image is a “Shop” heading, below image is a “Buy now” heading).

    This shop heading would be shown instead of the current text which just says “Little shop of Lobsters”.

    Thanks again.

    No problems, I sort of thought that’s what you wanted but just wanted to make sure.

    Here’s what I would do.

    Install this plugin –

    It’s another widget you can add to your sidebar and it lets you add images and text just like you do in a post or a page.

    It will also let you add the slideshow.

    So all you’ll need to do is add the “Shop” image, then click the “insert slideshow” button and finally add the final image “Buy now”.

    Let me know if you need me to explain further/better, or if it doesn’t work how you want.
