Plugin shortcode

To add a carousel via Cherry Single Carousel plugin, you should open any site page or post and insert the following shortcode:

[cherry_single_carousel title="Title" type="portfolio" posts_count="-1" 
movement="15" parallax="true" buffer_ratio="1.5" pagination="true" 
controls="true" autoplay="false" autoplay_delay="3000" 
stop_on_mouse_over="false" fullwidth="true" excerpt_count="35"]

This shortcode includes the following parameters:

  • title – title for your carousel;
