Step 2 - Insert HTML codes to your webpage

In Finder, go to Site Folder of your Freeway Pro project, open the file slider.html with a text editor. The file slider.html is created by Amazing Slider in step 1.

Please note, by default, TextEdit on Mac is not a plain text editor or HTML editor. If you want to use TextEdit, you can follow this tutorial to make it as an HTML editor: http://mac.tutsplus.com/tutorials/productivity/quick-tip-configure-textedit-for-coding-html/. Then you can use it to open the slider.html file and copy the HTML codes.

You can also try TextWrangler https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/textwrangler/id404010395?mt=12 or TextMate http://macromates.com/.

Step 3 - Upload slider folders to your web server

The built-in upload function of Freeway Pro does not upload the "extra" folders to the web server. So to make the slider working online, you need to use a FTP client software to upload the two folders sliderengine and images to the root folder of your web server. These two folders are created in Step 1.

You can use the free FTP client software FileZilla to do the uploading: https://filezilla-project.org/.
