Setting up a slider in WordPress is not as easy as it may seem. There are literally hundreds of free & premium plugins out there trying to tackle this problem.
Most of them are trying to cover every possible scenario and this is where things get complicated. Tons of options, convoluted interfaces, complex user flows are getting in your way when all you need is a simple slider.

How To Add Maxslider Shortcodes To Your WordPress Site
- Install the MaxSlider plugin through the WordPress plugins screen
- Activate the plugin through the "Plugins" screen in WordPress
- In the WordPress admin dashboard you should see a new post type named "MaxSlider"
- Navigate to the new MaxSlider post type and add your slides!
- Grab the id of the slider and use it in the shortcode below :
Replace 11017 with the id of your slide. You can copy the shortcode above in a text widget but if you want to add the shortcode inside a template file, use the code below:
<?php echo do_shortcode("[maxslider id='11017']"); ?>
I hope this helps.
