It can be integrated anywhere on your Blog/Website. The WP Nivo Slider shows your chosen Blog Posts from a specific Category.
To use the WP Nivo Slider, you must first enter the settings Plug-in Option -> WP Nivo Slider and choose which category you want that displays the posts. Next you need to insert a post in that category you chose previously. In the post that you entered you need to choose a post thumbnails.
