The Slideshow shortcode is a visual way of cycling through your featured listings.

Creating the Slideshow shortcode

As with all of the shortcodes visit Shortcodes in the Placester plugin. Click the Create Custom Shortcode link and enter a title for the shortcode. Now select Slideshow from the type dropdown.


Slideshow has a minimal set of parameters. First you can choose the width and height, set some animation settings, specify whether to show a time and to pause when you mouse over the slideshow. Then click the Pick featured listings button to choose which listings should be shown. You can search for listing in the form above, hover over Preview to see the image, and click Make Featured to add the property to the list.

Shortcode Templates

When you need to customize the HTML output of any shortcode, you need to use Shortcode Templates. The HTML you enter in the HTML section is any valid HTML and will be used for each listing. You can use any of the subcodes on the right within the HTML. See the Shortcode Template guide for more details.

Paste the Shortcode into Your Page

The final step in using a shortcode is to copy the shortcode into the page. For Slideshow, the shortcode will look something like:
[listing_slideshow id='1012']
though your ID will be different.
