Q: I use you WOWSlider. It's amazing! I successfully added shortcode on my Wordpress page.
But I want to put your slideshow in the right sidebar now.
How might I get a shortcode slider to work in a text-widget in the sidebar?
A: You should install a special plugin that allows to add php code into text widget firstly. For example, "daikos-text-widget":
After that go to
WOW Slider -> All Sliders
and click on "Excerpt view" button at the top right corner. Additional line "for templates" with php code will appear under line with shortcode.
You should add this php code into "daikos-text-widget", for example:
<?php wowslider(1); ?>
