1

Include the bxSlider files

This code adds the required files to the webpage. These files need to be included before initializing the slider.

2

Initialize the bxSlider plugin

This code tells the webpage to start the slider setup. Without this code the slider plugin would not be visible on the page.

3

Create the HTML for the slider

This is the code that the slider plugin will use to generate the slides.
