    I want to use html content in slides (for list etc.).

    When using html everything goes wrong….

    Isn’t it possible to use html code?

    And if not, is there a way to do use html in the slides?


    Hi hotspot,

    You can use iframe content as a slide but it would be loading in another html page into the slideshow area and not adding it directly to there.

    If you wanted it to appear like a caption, the most basic and probably best route is to create your image with the text list and use only an image instead of trying to add basic html.




    Hi Devin,

    For SEO this is not really the way to go. And when making changes to the content it’s very time consuming.

    No other option to add the ‘li’ tag, since ’em’ does work its a bit strange…

    Any ideas?


    For overall SEO the image vs a few lines of html shouldn’t make any difference on your search ranking. If you have the content elsewhere it will only get read by any crawlers once anyway.

    Lists specifically you’ll have issues with. You can add other html into the caption box (divs or anything else) but lists inside the slideshow are already getting effected by all the list rules that create the slideshow. Not impossible, just messy.

    As an example, if you wrap the list in a div called html-slide, you would then need to add the following css to your custom.css file or Quick CSS:

    .html-slide ul {
    display: block;
    #top .html-slide ul li{
    display: block;
    visibility: visible !important;
    position: relative;
    .html-slide {
    display: block;
