Image slider / carousel?

Hello there !

I’m trying to figure out how to add a simple image slider with a shortcode into one of the widgets, say the simple text widget ? What could I do for the customizer to take into account the [metaslider id=397] shortcode into the content area of the text content ?

Thanks.

Hello @nitwoogmail-com,

Text widget in Astrid theme accepts shortcodes by default.

Did you try to simply add a shortcode into Text widget?

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hey Roman,

Yes I simply downloaded and activated the Meta Slider extension, then directly copy pasted the corresponding shortcode in the text widget content, but no dice.

Hello @nitwoogmail-com,

I have just tried to do the same thing and it doesn’t work as well. Sorry for telling that it should work, actually it does work for Contact Form 7 plugin that I tested before.

However, please check this tutorial, it should help you to resolve your issue:

It’s ok, I was able to resolve my issue by using widgets simply.

Thanks.
