Different header on home page (4 posts)

    My template has a slider on the homepage in the content area. I want it in the header area (above the navigation and below the logo).

    I took
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/homepage-slider.php' ); ?> from the homepage template and pasted it into the header template. Works fine but of course I don't want it on every page just the home page. This might work with the conditional tag
    <?php if (is_home()) {

    but I am not sure how to put it all together. Any idea?

    I tried this:

    <?php if(is_home() ) {
    //do slider
    ?>
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/homepage-slider.php' ); ?>
    <?php
    } else {
    //do nothing
    ?>
    <?php
    } ?>

    But the slider is not appearing. Is there an error with the code?

    Thanks! That works. Didn't occur to me to use that.
