    Slide Show – Main Home page

    Resolved

    Hi,
    my website is http://www.conciencia-maghavat.com

    i´ve been trying to customize the home page…
    i want it to display specific images with an specific text for each image
    kind of like the demo on your page. withe the banner and the arrows for switching one image to another…

    im new in this.. i tried the jetpack plugin… but i still can’t make it happen
    choose the image and what text to show in each image.
    i have checked the manual and nothing.

    i saw this message and i think i didn’t do it this way:
    Please install this plugin before importing the theme’s demo content XML file. Also, activate the Jetpack’s “Custom Content Types” in Jetpack » Settings. Otherwise the content included in theme’s demo content XML file will not get imported in whole.

    could this e the problem?

    do you have by chance a video setting up the website like yours… step by step…
    or where can i check this… tutorial would be really good…

    thank you so much

    Hi,

    Have you read the instructions on how to set up banner slider in theme’s user manual at http://www.webmandesign.eu/manual/modern/#banner ?

    You need to set up the Jetpack’s featured content module for slider to populate with posts http://jetpack.me/support/featured-content/

    I will create a video tutorial on this soon.

    Also, have you changed the theme files? The HTML of your website is broken and also you have a lot of JavaScript errors on your website. Please try to disable all the plugins to see if that helps.

    Regards,

    Oliver

    Hi,

    As for plugins, there are thousands of plugins out there that I haven’t tested and the answer would really depend on your needs, on the functionality you want to add to your website.

    Indeed, the JavaScript errors seems to be resolved now. So, it was definitely caused by one of the plugins you are using.

    The slideshow is populated just from featured posts. It is not possible to set up a custom homepage fullscreen slideshow for this theme out of the box. You would need to code it via a child theme. You can use some slideshow plugin but you can only display it in page/post content directly. If you would like to override the text and image of the current slideshow generated from featured posts, you can set up the banner_text and/or banner_image (set the image url) custom fields (http://www.webmandesign.eu/manual/modern/#banner).

    On the theme demo website I use featured posts for the slider. You can see when you click the slider titles it will take you to the actual featured post. I just used banner_text custom field (like I’ve mentioned above) to override the post title text displayed in the slider by default. The images in the banner/slider are the actual featured images of the posts.

    Slider/banner arrows will display when you set up 2 or more featured posts according to http://jetpack.me/support/featured-content/ (read just the “Usage” section). Have you created a special tag? Have you assigned the tag to a specific posts you want to display in slider? Once you do so, the slider will populate with posts and start to work.

    The theme’s HTML is perfectly fine by the default, there are no errors in it whatsoever. On your website there are 2 metatags just after the doctype (please see your website source code). It is possible you’ve placed those in there as those are Google verification metas. If that’s the case, I recommend using plugin such as WordPress SEO by Yast as if you update the theme in the future, you will loose all your custom code you’ve placed in the theme’s source files.

    Regards,

    Oliver
