Q. Why Atom feeds are not appearing in the slider?

A. By default the shortcode takes feed format as RSS feed. In case you want to have a slider with Atom Feed (for example Flickr.com generates atom feed format for feed URL), add a parameter as feed=”atom” in the shortcode to get the slider with Atom feed.
