FAQ

How do I include a slideshow in the header of my site?

Video Guide:

Text Guide:

You will need to paste the “Template Include” code into your theme (you can find this in the ‘Usage’ section underneath the slideshow settings)

  • Go to Appearance > Editor in WordPress
  • Edit a file called ‘header.php’ (or similar)
  • Find the correct place to add it (for example above or below the logo)
  • Paste in the code and save.

I only want to show the slideshow on my homepage, how can I do that?

Add the ‘restrict_to’ parameter to the shortcode, eg:

[metaslider id=XXX restrict_to=home]");
