Once you’ve created a slider definition, you can insert the slider content anywhere you can use a shortcode. This includes standard Pages and Posts, as well as Text Widgets (using an include option to allow Text Widgets to support shortcodes). Some themes (such as Weaver Xtreme) allow you to insert shortcodes other places, including the header area.
Show Sliders includes many more options that allow you to specify different widths, control timing of slides, support Video in sliders, and much more. Show Sliders gives you more control over the appearance and content of your sliders than any other slider plugin.
