Add beautiful image slider to your WordPress blog! Awesome effects, fancy templates, point-and-click wizard. Fully responsive, pure CSS fallback.
No, it's impossible. You should make all changes in WOWSlider application and generate a new module.
To insert WOWSlider into header you should use WOWSlider PHP code.
Go to WOW Slider -> All Sliders
and click on "Excerpt view" button at the top right corner. Additional line "for templates" with php code will appear under line with shortcode. You should add this php code into your header (Appearance->Editor->Header), for example:
<?php wowslider(1); ?>
You should install a special plugin that allows to add php code into text widget firstly. For example, "PHP Text Widget": http://wordpress.org/plugins/php-text-widget/
After that go to WOW Slider -> All Sliders
and click on "Excerpt view" button at the top right corner. Additional line "for templates" with php code will appear under line with shortcode.
You should select a simple text widget and add PHP code into it, for example:
<?php wowslider(1); ?>
You should select Appearance -> Editor and change "header.php" from templates in the right column.
It seems "z-index" problem. WOWSlider's value of "z-index" parameter is 90. So, "z-index" value of your menu should be greater than 90. If problem will persist, please contact with customer support at support [at] wowslider [dot] com. Provide us a direct link to your webpage with a problem.
Notice, WOWSlider provides this feature since v.2.1. So, if you use an older version, it will not work. Also, degradation to CSS-slider will not work, if you use "On-demand image loading" option. This option means that the images will be loaded from the script.
WOWSlider generates paths to files according to your WordPress settings. So, if your site is "https", all paths in HTML code should be "https" too. Please try to follow this instruction: http://make.wordpress.org/support/user-manual/web-publishing/https-for-wordpress/

Control panel -> System -> Advanced system settings -> (Performance) Settings -> Data Execution Prevention.

Yes, it's possible. To insert WOWSlider into frontpage only, you should add the following code in the "header.php" file:
<?php if (is_home() || is_front_page()) wowslider(ID); ?>
(where ID is your slider identifier - number) in the place where you want to have a slider.
You should use "On-demand image loading" option in this case. Only first image should be pre-loaded and slideshow will start. All other images will be loaded during the playing.
It's possible to add individual link to each image. You should select image by clicking and specify link in "Url" field.
