Step 2a – Create a Filter
After you have created your content, you now have to create a Filter for the slider to use to select which content is displayed in the Slider. Show Sliders uses the powerful Filter specifications supported by the Show Posts plugin. You can easily fine tune which posts are used in a slider by filling selection filters based on name, category, tags, dates, post type, and more. Typically, selection criteria such as category, tag, or Slider Post Slider Group are used to specify which posts are included.
The first step is to create a filter by opening the Weaver Slider Posts/Slider admin page, clicking the Filters tab, and entering a name for the filter (“Create Slideshow”), and creating the filter by giving by clicking the “Create New Filter Button”. It can make it easier to keep track of which sliders and filters work together by giving them the same name. We will use “Create Slideshow” for our examples.
