You can include the Responsive Slider WordPress shortcode into your posts and pages. To insert the contact form into your posts or pages, you can use this shortcode:

Shortcode for WordPress Responsive Slider

In this shortcode, you should replace “path/to/image” with a relative path where your images are stored. You can use any FTP client to create folders and upload images to your site.

You can also use images uploaded via Media Library, but you should know the folder where these images are uploaded. By default, WordPress makes folders with years and months. So, to show images from January 2015, your path will be “wp-content/uploads/2015/01”. Keep in mind that media files uploaded via Media Library are not stored in logically sorted folders. Also, there are often several versions of the same image in different resolutions. Therefore, it’s recommended to use FTP to upload your images for the Responsive Slider WordPress plugin.
