  1. Thank you , the slider is showing in 2017 theme of wordpress but in my own custom theme. do i need some addition function to do so… pls let me know asap.

  2. Hello Shrinivas, thank you so much for sharing this. Do you know how I can embed crelly sliders in the shark business theme? If there is a way without code, it will be great because I am not an expert with that. Thanks!

      1. Hello Shrinivas, thanks for your prompt reply. I do have the shortcode, but how can I replace the sliders from the shark theme in the home page with the sliders made in crelly sliders? I tried to copy the shortcode in the home page, but it was added in the content of the home page not in the header or replacing the current sliders.

        1. it seems that the theme doesn’t have the option to add the third-party shortcode, you have to add the slider shortcode in front-page.php using do_shortcode() function.
