Add a slideshow using Slideshow Gallery plugin

Assuming you have created a PAGE or POST and have added a GALLERY through ADD MEDIA, and are in EDIT mode, use the tab in the upper right and change the visual editor to TEXT mode.  In the body of the content where you’d like the slideshow to display, you’ll need to place a shortcode. For example:

[slideshow post_id="5" auto="true"]

For the shortcode to work, you will need to identify the post_id # for the page or post you’re working on. (yes, it’s post_id whether it’s a PAGE or POST.)  to do so, move your cursor over one of the Edit buttons near PUBLISH. In most browsers, this causes the url of the link to appear at the bottom left browser. You will see within that url the post_id (YNMV – your numeral may vary).


 In this shortcode, I have also added an “auto” parameter so the show advances automagically. Other preferences can be set site-wide or on individual slideshows as enumerated below.

Sure looks weird around here....

Remember the website I had 10 years ago that said ‘The Shoemakers’ children never have any shoes?’ I’m here again to say I’m too busy with more interesting projects to bother to make this website prettier for now, but I had to disable those items that were not serving my site.

Don’t use old tech, kids! Just like I tell my clients. If you let your site get out of date, it’s not secure.
