  3. Paste the code into a post or page on your blog and publish it. If you are using the block editor, you can add a shortcode to any page or post using a shortcode block. The slideshow will look similar to the one below.

You can also change the width and height of your slideshow by adding these parameters &w=650&h=500 to the end of the shortcode.

Example: If you use this shortcode your slideshow will be displayed at 650px wide and 500px high.
