Adding the Shortcode onto the Page

After adding the slides using the Edge Slideshow post type, you can add the Edge One Pager shortcode on the Page/Post edit screen using the Visual Composer. Just click on Add Element, and search for Edge One Pager to add the element. After this, the Edge One Pager edit screen will open.

Edge One Page Select Element

Here is a brief introduction of options that is available for the Edge One Pager shortcode:

Select Specific Slides.  

You can add the slides you already added using the Edge Slideshow menu item here. Just click on the selection box and search for the name of your desired slide. You can add as many slides as you like, but we recommend keeping this limited so there will be no impact on your website speed. More slides means more images and media to load which will make your website slow.


You can choose the order type for the slides. Available options are:

  1. ASC (Ascending Order)
  2. DESC (Descending Order)
Order By.  

You can determine the order of the selected slides to appear on the front end. Available options are:

  1. Date
  2. Posts In (manually selected posts)
  3. Menu Order
  4. Post Id
  5. Title
  6. Comment Count
  7. Random
  8. Author
  9. No Order
Extra Class Name.  

This is an option which is common amongst most shortcodes. If you wish to style a particular content element differently, then use this field to add a class name and then refer to it in the Custom CSS settings inside Theme Settings.

Note: Finally we should mention that the Edge One Pager shortcode works best if you set the Page Elements option to Remove Page Title & Footer, and enable the Stick Template option from Ken Page Options.
