Revslider Shortcode

Updated on October 11, 2017

The Slider Revolution is one of the most versatile premium WordPress slideshow plugins. For users of the Jupiter WordPress theme, the plugin is bundled with in the theme for free.

In this article, we will explain how to import/create a slideshow and display it with the Revslider shortcode in the Jupiter WordPress theme.

To see the Revslider shortcode in action, check out the demo page.

Importing/Creating a Slideshow

Unlike the LayerSlider plugin, the Slider Revolution plugin has a few pre-built slideshows. You can find them in the package you download from ThemeForest. In general, we focus on using the LayerSlider plugin.

Importing a Slideshow

In addition to our pre-built slideshows, there are a lot of free and premium pre-built slideshows for the plugin that are available for download from the Slider Revolution Exchange page.

To import a slideshow:

1After downloading a pre-built slideshow from the above mentioned page, go to the WordPress left menu, and then to the Slider Revolution page.
