    I recently installed the plugin, it works fine, only I was wondering: is it possible to create several different slides to insert in other articles?
    Anyway thank you for this plugin ….

  2. RS says:

    Really love the plugin. Wondering if you can add simple navigation to it. If you do that it would be perfect!

    Thanks for your hard work.

  3. Jay says:

    Looks awesome! is there a way to add a simple navigation (left and right buttons) to move forward or backward? Thanks =)

  4. Alex says:

    Is there any way to make it work in post excerpts? E.g: Make a slider work in a sticky post.

    • wpfruits says:

      Nope not yet. Post excerpt filter the code and they dont allow any shortcodes within them. Either you will need to create custom excerpt to make it work with them.

  5. Wes Garlatz says:

    Works great! Exactly what I needed. The one request I have is to be able to activate/deactivate slides without having to delete them. I run certain specials/featured products that rotate in on a monthly basis and I’d like to be able to save them for later use. thanks for a great plug-in!

  6. Hi Sorry but can’t see the point in adding YouTube videos, once you click play the slider continues so you can’t actually watch the video.

    Are you going to add in a function that when the video is playing the slider stops rotating until the video stops playing or has been stopped by the user?


    • Can we get this to fade as well?

    • wpfruits says:


      If your mouse is over the slide it wont slide. So if you are watching a youtube video you can watch it out. We are already working on the issue though. About the fade effect that can be easily achieved.


      • Thanks for the reply. I know to hover over the video but other people using the site won’t and they will think it a bit odd.

        I tried the Fade effect but my skills in jQuery are very poor. I think it looks more professional for the transition to Fade rather than slide in any of the available directions.

        Any idea when the new version will be released? Or could you give me a pointer on how to make it fade.

        Once again Thanks


  7. Barry says:

    Having trouble with making this responsive I tried changing settings to width 100% height 100% this almost works except it winds up showing all 3 slides at once repeat same thing 3 times ?? can you help? thankyou Barry

  8. Jarod says:

    Hello – I am looking to have the slides rotate randomly. How can I implement or can you point my in the right direction for support or dev?

    Thank you

  9. toppa says:

    thanks for the great plugin.

    is there a way to have the slide in the sidebar as a widget? I tried to do this with the “Text – Arbitrary text or HTML” widget and enter [shs_slider_show] or

    but it didnt worked out?!


  10. Joseba says:

    Hello, it doesn’t work very well in my ie8. Is it because my computer, or it doesnt work?

    It is perfect for chrome, thanks

    • wpfruits says:


      We have tested it out on different IE versions and does work absolutely fine for us. So may be your computer. Can you check it on another computer and let us know if the issue persist


  11. Richard says:

    Hi, Great plugin. Since upgrading to wordpress 3.5 it no longer scrolls but just switches straight to the next slide (no transition). Any ideas how to resolve this please?

    • wpfruits says:


      We did test it out with the 3.5 version and its working fine for us. Can you give me the url so that I can check what is causing the issue. Must be some jQuery conflict.

  12. WiSch says:

    Thanks for your work, but what do you think, when will the next version come out?
    Waiting to use the plugin until it got a navigation.

  13. Jason says:

    I have installed your simple html slider and since I wanted it to be displayed in the sidebar of my blog. So I found a php code widget and added the php code in it and placed the widget in sidebar. But its not sliding the html code I added. Its a image and a blank text code. Can you help.

  14. Andy says:

    Is it possible to add multiple slides?
    For example. 1 slide to the left, on at the bottom of the page and another on to the right? With different content on each.

  15. omniafausta says:

    Hi, I am using this lovely plugin in a site I am building at the moment. It looks like it does exactly what I need. Except that it seems to break in IE9… it works in IE8 and IE10. Is this a bug in the plugin, or did I do something wrong? Do you have a working example and if so, does it work in IE9?

    • omniafausta says:

      Looks like it must be something I did wrong, since the example on this page does work in IE9. I have 1 idea what it might be (the ‘auto’ height I entered instead of a fixed height). I’ll change that and let you know if that was the problem.

    • nishant says:


      We are sorry to late response.
      Can you please provide us your site URL to have a close look over the your issue (if you issue still persist).

      Please let us know.


  16. Hi,

    I was wondering if there was a way to make that plugin responsive, for mobile support.



  17. Brian says:


    The plugin is nice, but the two options for the direction of the slide are opposite of how it is normal to read English. Is it hard to customize this so that the slides move up instead of down? Thanks, Brian

  18. Brett says:

    Is it possible to have a single row of multiple slides instead of just one at a time? Like a wide row of 6-8 slides with the arrows panning through one “page” at a time

    • Nishant says:

      Hi Brett,

      Unfortunately, there is no this kind of functionality available in the plugin.

      But, we will try to add this functionality in the plugin next update.


  19. bob eggers says:

    How can the auto slideshow be removed? so that the items do not move until the next/prev buttons are clicked.

    • wpfruits says:

      We don’t know which version are you currently using Lite or Pro but the feature that you are looking can be found in the Pro version of SHTML Slider Plugin.

      Please let me know if you have any issue.

  20. Kirstin Orr says:

    Was the randomized slides figured out? Is there something I can add to the code to randomize the rotation?


  21. Niklas says:


    I just bought the premium plugin but for some reason I can’t get the images and videos I want to show.

    I simply add a youtube embedded iframe for one of the slides like this:

    And the slider say:
    It says “the requested URL was not found on this server”

    Whats wrong? The slider is on this url:

    • Nishant says:

      Hi Niklas,

      We have checked URL that you have mentioned.
      But we didn’t find slider there.

      So, can you please provide us URL where you are using slider.
      Please let us know asap.


      • Niklas says:

        Sorry! I had to remove the slider for client demo.

        Now I have a new one on this link:

        I figured out my first problem. It adds %22 before and after the URL and therefore it’s not found. When I remove the quotes it works. So for an image src=”theurl” will not work, but src=theurl will.

        However I have a bounch of new problems now.

        Vimeo never works.In chrome it opens the lightbox, the slider continues and the lightbox closes when the slider change image. In safari I don’t even see the slide with a vimeovideo in it.

        Youtube is working better, but some time I get the lightbox INSIDE the slide.. some other times it opens correct but then I have the navigation arrows on top of it.

        When I try to close a video with the X the video continues in the background so I hear the sound. Any solution?

        I have collected som screenshots of my errors here:

        Please help me

        Kind Regards

  22. Angela says:

    I am SO happy to have found this and thank you for making it available.

    I’m wondering if there is a way to have a slide already in place on the page so that the area isn’t empty while waiting for the first slide?

    Also I’m wondering how to get the last empty row to delete so that, like above, there isn’t an empty space in between slides.

    Has anyone worked this out?

    • nishant says:

      Hi Angela,

      Thank you for telling us about your needs.

      We will try to add the solutions for these in plugin next update.


  23. Patrick says:

    Is there some simple code I can modify to make the rotation go from right-to-left instead of left-to-right?

    • nishant says:


      If you have better knowledge about jQuery and CSS, you can change it via cutomizing plugin core file “main.php“.
      Hope it would be helpful to you.
      Please let us know.


      • Isabella says:

        Hi, real glad that I found your slider, it was just the thing I needed for my latest client project.

        The only thing that bugs me is the same point Patrick mentioned, the moving backwards of the slides can be kind of irritating when text is involved.

        Could you provide the line number which has to be changed?

        • nishant says:


          Actually, to do this you will to need edit in many lines.
          So, here we are not able to mention line no.


  24. Marcelo says:

    How can i use it as a widget? I´ve tryied but it is not working. It´s just appearing the text “[shs_slider_show]”

    • nishant says:


      Its seems that, Short-code is not enable for widget section.
      So, to enable it please add the given below code in theme functions.php file.

      add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode')

      After it, use short-code, hope it would be helpful to you.


  25. ms-ty says:

    We recently purchased your Pro version of the Simple HTML slider. We are browser testing it, and the images/content aren’t showing up in IE8. What could be causing this?

  26. Oskar Modig says:

    After the latest update the scrolling stopped working. I fixed it by toggling the animation type, but now the direction is reversed (things are moving to the right side, I want it to move to the left). Is that possible to fix?

    • nishant says:


      Unfortunately, latest version we have updated the slider to fix the issues in major browsers.
      So, it would be difficult to revert the all updates in latest version.
      Please let us know.


      • Oskar Modig says:

        I edited the plugin and added another option for animation type.
        In the direction-switch I added a “Left”-case (a dublicate of the “Right”-case) and in the shs_animate function I edited so that the item width was added to the left_indent, not subtracted, I also (still in the shs_animate function) edited the jQuery function three lines below that changes place of slides, by switching places of :first and :last.

        I hope you understand my explanation.

  27. Marcus H. says:

    Really great plugin, thank you! 🙂
    We’re using this slider for 3D-animations. Unfortunately it’s loading all HTML-Pages (10) at the same time, so it’s a loading really slowly for us. Is it possible to stop preloading all pages at the same time or add a priority?

    • nishant says:

      Hi Marcus,

      Thank you for contacting us.
      Are you using SHTML Slider PRO version, if yes, can you please provide us your site URL.


      • Hi Nishant,

        I’m not using the pro-version at the moment (didn’t know that there IS a pro version until you asked for it :-)). If it’s possible to configure the loading priority there (the current page is loaded at first!), I will get it.
        Btw. I think this would be a nice feature anyway. If you’re at Slide 1 and it is not loaded, it should not load Slide 2 to 99. 🙂


        • nishant says:


          We would appreciate it if you can provide more details on the issue you are facing.
          Meanwhile you can have a look at the demo of the PRO version of this plugin we have created.

          Please let us know.


          • Hi,

            Ok, I’ll try to explain the issue more detailed.

            We’re using the HTML-Slider to load 10 HTML-Pages with 3D-Animations. So there are 252 pictures per page (!) loaded before you can control the Animation. It takes about 10 sec for every page to be loaded. That’s not a problem as long as you load only 1 of these pages, but as soon as the HTML-Slider ist loaded, it loads EVERY page simultaneously. So it takes about 90-120 sec until the first page is completely loaded. For this problem the slider should load the current slide (or at least the first one) FIRST and THEN load the other ones. So the current Slide would be available after 10 sec and after this the other Slides begin to be loaded. Do you understand the issue? I could also send you the url via E-Mail if you like.
            The PRO version looks cool, but as far as I see it won’t solve our specific problem, will it?

            Best regards,

  28. jeff says:

    I need it to go from left to right but it will not work only right to left .

    • nishant says:

      Hi jeff,

      Sorry, but we didn’t get what you are trying to say here.
      Can you please your requirement a bit more.


  29. Ed says:

    The plugin works great. Is there any way to get the “SHS” to hide? It ends up on the following line that covers up some text. Or, if it could show with the images would be OK.


  30. Alfonso says:

    Hello I only can put 3 slides no more, if I add more than 3 the slides moves to the right.

  31. I have one of these slider on my website is it possible to have more then on with different content
    Kind regards
