In the Dottoro theme, slideshows can be created and managed under Slideshows » Slideshows. Every time you want to add a slideshow to your pages, you should specify the slideshow and the gallery you want to display in the slideshow. The gallery contains the items (images, posts, etc.) you want to display while the slideshow determines the way they should be displayed (more on Galleries and Slideshows).
There are two ways of adding slideshows to your pages: the [slideshow] shortcode and the Slideshow Widget.
Both allow you to specify the slideshow and the gallery you want to display.
Additionally, it is also possible to query for posts and display the result in a slideshow. For instance, you can display the 5 latest blog posts in a slideshow. You don't need to do anything else just put a [query] shortcode into the slideshow shortcode by specifying the query parameters. Or if the slideshow is displayed with a Slideshow Widget, then you can use the "Extra Settings" field for this purpose.
There are a couple of shortcodes that can be nested into a slideshow shortcode. These are:
The identifier of the slideshow you want to display.
To get the identifier of a slideshow, go to Slideshows » Slideshows and click on the slideshow. Here you will find the id of the slideshow.
Specifies the name of a gallery or a comma separated list of gallery names that should be displayed in the slideshow.
Additionally, you can also use the post_id:gallery_name syntax to refer to a gallery of another post or a global gallery. For instance, "23:gallery1" refers to the "gallery1" gallery of the post with id of 23, "0:gallery1" refers to the "gallery1" global gallery.Finally, there is a special value, the "_default" that identifies the default gallery of a post. For instance, if the "galleries" attribute is set to "_default" and a [query] shortcode nested into the slideshow shortcode, the slideshow will display the default galleries of the queried posts. More on Galleries and the Default Gallery.
|group||Specifies a group identifier or a comma separated list of group identifiers for the posts appearing in the list. This attribute is useful if there are multiple post lists, gallery lists and/or slideshows on the same page and you want each post to appear at most once. In this case, just give the same group identifier to the post lists, gallery lists and slideshows and they will display different posts.|
[slideshow name="id_of_slideshow" galleries="0:name_of_gallery" /]
[slideshow name="id_of_slideshow" galleries="name_of_gallery" /]
[slideshow name="id_of_slideshow"] [query post_type="post" posts_per_page="5" /] [/slideshow]
