Managing content

Content in SliderShock can be either images and text, or content imported from other websites.

Insert images and text

The process to insert images and text is as follows:

Create a category or use an existing one: Images with the same category will be shown on a slider. Example: images with category france will show on a slide while Images with category Spain will be shown in another one.


Add a new Slide for each image: In order to insert an image to the slider, that image must be uploaded on a post. Any text placed on the post will be the caption text and the tittle of the post (if any) will be the slide tittle.


The image uploaded must be set as a featured image for that post.


Also, the category created must be checked while creating the post.


Once created and published the posts with the featured images, go to the Slidershock control panel in the dashboard, and select the category you classified the images in from the categories dropdown menu. In the controls area, configure the slider settings at your convenience having in mind that the number of slides you select is the number of slides that will be shown disregarding how many images have you uploaded to slider.

Copy the shortcode generated on a new post. The tittle of the post will be the slide tittle. any text besides the short code will be external text. Publish it.

The result should be like this:


Insert content from other websites


Inserting content from other websites is really simple. On the contents area, select the option for the content that you want to insert.
