Dear Author the mentioned Shortcode's didn't work you have to update your documentation. Placing directly on php file: <?php echo do_shortcode( "[horizontal-scrolling group='GROUP1' speed='10' direction='left' gap='50']" ); ?> For Pages OR Posts only: [horizontal-scrolling group='GROUP1' speed='10' direction='left' gap='50']
