The Slideshow item - short is for use on content pages only.

It's possible to have two or more slideshows on a page.

Give it try

1. Create a hidden section called Slideshow, as a sub-section (child) of the section (page) where the slideshow will live.

2. Create a second hidden sub-section of Slideshow which you have just made, this will 'house' the slideshow item content type.

The graphic below shows the structure. Grey indicates the folder is hidden from the navigation. Full width content page is where the slideshow will appear.

3. Add a Slideshow item - short content type to your second hidden sub-section(Find out how to add a content type to a section), in this example it is called,  slideshow 1 items. You must repeat this step for each slide in your slideshow sequence.

There's a bug in t4 and items cannot be ordered with the up and down arrows. To control the order in which the items appear, they should be named with numeric or alphabetic prefixes thus: a - item description, b - item description etc., OR 1 - item description, 2 - item description etc.

NB: If you require another slideshow on the same page, it's slides would live in a separate sub-section as a child of Slideshow, for example, slideshow 2 items.
