    Hi Peter,
    You will need to somehow co-relate a slider to the user.

    The possible options are using the username or the id.

    So, you will be naming your slider as

    
    some-slider-1 or some-slider-admin
    
    

    and based on the choice you can use the following to generate the slider name dynamically.

    
    
    echo do_shortcode( '[rev_slider alias="gym-classes-'. bp_displayed_user_id() .'"]' );
    
    

    or

    
    
    echo do_shortcode( '[rev_slider alias="gym-classes-'. bp_get_displayed_user_username() .'"]' );
    
    

    Hope that helps.

    How would that be phrased if I used the username – “peterfae” with the slider “peterfae-story” ?

    And could I set another username w/a different slider?

    Hi Peter,
    This should do the job

    
    echo do_shortcode( '[rev_slider alias="' . bp_get_displayed_user_username() . '-story"]' );
    
    

    Regards
    Brajesh

    I’m sorry Brajesh, that doesn’t make any sense. The syntax is confusing to me.

    If I used a revolution slider with the name “revslider-story”, with the username ‘peterfae’ how exactly would that syntax play out?

    like this?

    ‘echo do_shortcode( ‘[rev_slider alias=”‘rev slider-story . bp_get_displayed_user_username(peterfae) . ‘-“]’ );’

    I … that doesn’t feel right. Where do I put the single ticks or the double ticks? Do I put the username inside the parentheses? Confused.

    Hi Peter,
    I am not sure how you want it now and it will help if you can write exactly the way you want the shortcode.

    The earlier was to make it like ‘user-name-story’ e.g. peterfae-story.
