Creating a rotating advertisement on your website

Creating a rotating advertisement on your website

You can create a series of rotating advertisements so you can use the same space to display a number of different ads on your website. The ads automatically rotate, and each ad can link to a website for the advertiser or product that’s being advertised.

Create a new slider for the rotating advertisement

  1. On the WordPress dashboard, in the menu on the left of the screen, click Master Slider.
  2. Click Create New Slider.
  3. Select Custom Slider. At the bottom of the screen, click Create.

Add advertisement slides to the rotating advertisement slider

Once you create a new slider for your rotating advertisements, you can create a slide for each advertisement you want to add to the rotation.
  1. Click Add Slide.
  2. Do any of the following:
    • To add a slide using an image you already added, in the Media Library tab, click an image. To add multiple slides at once, hold the CTRL key and click multiple images.
    • To add a slide using a new image, in the Upload Files tab, click Select Files. Select the images you want to upload and click Open. Click Create Slides.
  3. Click Create Slide(s).
  4. On the Slides tab, click a slide image.
  5. In the Fillmode drop-down list, select Stretch.
