FAQ

https://www.metaslider.com/documentation/

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]");

Avis

Meta Slider Support is great!

I use jetpack and its made some other plugins act wierd. @kbat82 figured it was a the crop setting. I changed it and the issue was resolved. Thanks

Great plugin for carousels

This plugin is great to display a carousel and open it in a lightbox. I had some issues to make it work with a premium theme and the support was really good. It finally worked like a charm !

3.4 [04/01/17]

This is the first in a series of small updates which will eventually allow us to remove restrictions in the plugin which prevent us from implementing certain functionality, including:

  • Changing a slide image
  • Using unique captions when the same slide has been added to more than one slideshow
  • Adding the same slide to a slideshow multiple times
  • Duplicating slides and sliders
  • Drafting slides
  • Scheduling slides

We are releasing this update in a number of small stages due to the number of users MetaSlider has. We are being overly cautious to ensure it’s a smooth transition. This update does not make any major changes to the current plugin functionality, but it does put in place the « scaffolding » code which we will rely on to implement further updates.
