    I've installed a wordpress theme containing coin slider. I can't seem to figure out how to change the images to customize it for my business. My website is http://www.canalsolutions.com

    Here is the header.php code for the coin slider. I tried a few different things, but just haven't had any luck. Please help! Thanks.

    <<div id="coin-slider"> <img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/slider_img_1.jpg" width="960" height="470" alt="slide1" /><span class="cs-title">Building Connections to Resources<small>Fusce nec iaculis risus. Phasellus nec sem sed tellus malesuada porttitor. Mauris scelerisque feugiat ante in vulputate. Nam sit amet ullamcorper tortor.</small></span> <img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/slider_img_1.jpg" width="960" height="470" alt="slide2" /><span class="cs-title">Building Connections to Resources<small>Fusce nec iaculis risus. Phasellus nec sem sed tellus malesuada porttitor. Mauris scelerisque feugiat ante in vulputate. Nam sit amet ullamcorper tortor.</small></span> <img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/slider_img_3.jpg" width="960" height="470" alt="slide3" /><span class="cs-title">Building Connections to Resources<small>Fusce nec iaculis risus. Phasellus nec sem sed tellus malesuada porttitor. Mauris scelerisque feugiat ante in vulputate. Nam sit amet ullamcorper tortor.</small></span> <img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/slider_img_4.jpg" width="960" height="470" alt="slide4" /><span class="cs-title">Building Connections to Resources<small>Fusce nec iaculis risus. Phasellus nec sem sed tellus malesuada porttitor. Mauris scelerisque feugiat ante in vulputate. Nam sit amet ullamcorper tortor.</small></span> </div>

    I just had a look at your website and it is similar to my theme here: http://www.thevirtualpersonalassistant.com
    It took me a while before I figured out where to go to change my images and text.
    You need to be using an FTP service rather than just the WordPress platform.
    If you're not using FTP already, you'll need to Google how to do that.
    Once you've done that, you'll need to add the images you want, into the images folder of your theme.
    Once that's done, open the "header.php" file into Dreamweaver, and edit the image file names that are already in there to the image you want to use. For example, if the image you want is called "canal-team.jpg", that is the image you would have copied into the images folder of your theme, and that is the name you put in your code instead of "/images/slider_img_4.jpg" for example, it will be /images/canal-team.jpg".
    I hope that makes sense.

    No worries. It took me ages to figure it out. Just had to play around with it a bit and look in every single file, lol.
    Glad it's worked for you :)
