    You can create a slide show in Wow Slider and add it to your Web Designer page using a Placeholder.

    Publish your slideshow to a folder (I like to have the folder on my desktop because it is easier to find)

    Then you create a placeholder which is a simple rectangle the same size as the slide show.

    Open the index.html file increated with Wow Slider in Wordpad and there will be a head section and a body section with comments indicating what needs to be copied.

    Copy the HEAD portion from the index.html then select the placeholder rectangle and click the Placeholder tab in the Web Properties, click the Replace with HTML Code HEAD button and paste the copied text.

    Do the same for the Body portion.

    When you publish the website, you need to upload the two folders that Wow Slider creates to your root directory (the same directory that the your website is published to.

    This is a lot of information. If this is not clear I will try to give you more detail.

    It may help to you show 3 summary steps in pictures and to cover the 'must do's': Here first is a working example https://theparsonage.co.uk. This works for desktop and mobile.

    Must Do 1: Every slider must have its own unique ID, 1, 2, 3 etc. You cannot copy and paste (or share) sliders with the same ID across variants.

    Must Do 2: I have found you cannot mix and match Xara image slider widgets with WOW sliders on the same page.

    Must Do 3: You cannot use the Xara Video Widget on the same page as a WOW slider. Alternative code I use, seems to be far more efficient anyway:

    HTML Code:
    * { box-sizing: border-box;}
      position: absolute;
      width: 100%; 
      height: 100%;
    <video controls autoplay muted id="myVideo">
    <source src="Parsonage2019.mp4" type="video/mp4">
    I have found the WOW sliders fun to work with; the real upside is they are touch-sensitive so you can manually scroll them too.
