Wanting to create a slide show, getting nowhere

How can I create a slide show on Omeka? I see that it can be done, but I have no idea how to do it. I've tried to use WOW slider and I've wasted 2 days trying to get it to work. I am very frustrated at this point. Can anyone provide me with clear directions on creating a slide show in Omeka either using WOW slider or some other means? I am not a coder.

Sliders generally call for some level of customizing the theme and adding javascript files.

From what I can see from WOW slider, it tries to work as its own application within something else, and so won't really interact with content in Omeka, and permissions for the files it generates on the server could cause errors. My first guess is that there are permission problems using it with Omeka.
