How To Add a Slide Show to a WordPress Website – EASY to Use!


This video is a follow up video to one of my full length website design tutorials that walks you through the process of creating a website from start to finish and uses the same WordPress theme that is used in this video. That video can be found here:

In this video, I walk you through how to add a slide show to any page on your WordPress website. The slide show plugin is called “Easing Slider Lite” and you can easily add your slideshow to any of your web pages.

I also show you a free stock photography website called pixaby and teach you how to crop your photos to fit properly in your slide show with a web application called PIXLR

    This did not work for me. 🙁 It just shows the brackets with no slideshow. I wonder what I did wrong. I would like to put the slideshow on my homepage instead of my banner. How would I do that?

    How do I add a slideshow to the frontpage of my wordpress theme, rather than to a post or page? I've been having troubles with a really simple blogging theme that I have, because it doesn't allow me to put a slideshow on the frontpage. For now, I only have one "slide". Thank you!

    Awesome!  I can't explain in mere words how happy I am to have actually found this WP tutorial.  I'd already found some others that I was trying to work through but, invariably, the hosts didn't take into consideration that the viewer might be completely new to WP (as I am).  You, on the other hand, took everything nice and slow, were articulate and very precise.  Thanks again!
