From your Admin Panel go to Plugins -> Add New -> Upload -> Browse and pick the lightspotslider archive file. Click “Install Now” button. Click “Active Now” after the plugin has been installed. A new menu should now appear in your Admin Menu called “Lightspot Slider”.

  • Categories

Before adding images you will have to create a category that will hold your images. You will have to create at least 1 category.

By default the slider displays images from all categories. You can specify in the general settings or in the shortcode itself whether you want to display images from specific categories only.

From your Admin Panel go to Lightspot Slider -> Categories -> Add Category. Enter category name and click “Save Changes”.

  • Adding slides

From your Admin Panel go to Lightspot Slider-> Slides. You will see a list with categories you have created and button to the right “Add slide to this category”. Add the slide information and click Save Changes.

  • Displaying the plugin on the front-end.

The plugin uses the shortcode [lightspotslider] to display the front-end content. From your Admin Panel create new Page or Post and type [lightspotslider].

If you want to call it directly through “do_shortcode” use: <?php echo do_shortcode(“[lightspotslider]”); ?>


If you intend to call the shortcode with “echo do_shortcode(“[lightspotslider]”);” make sure you have loaded the scripts first by using

<?php Lightspotslider::enqueue_scripts(); ?>
