Untitled
[resolved] featured posts slideshow (not slider) (4 posts)

    I've managed to set up some featured posts in my home page, but I expected an option to set a timer to automatically cycle between that posts. Something like a slideshow (not a slider!).
    Any idea of how to do this?

    Thanks!

    Just found the answer in another post here (I've been searching for hours, I promise).
    If somebody else is interested in this, just edit the javascript in 'themes/untitled/js/untitled.js'. Set the 'slideshow' option to 'true', and set a different 'SlideshowSpeed' if needed.

  3. That's not really a good idea exactly as when that theme get's updated you will lose your edits.

    I'm on a train right now but that untitled.js should be properly queued up so you can create a child theme and use an init hook to dequeue that javascript.

    Once that's done then you can queue up a modified copy of that javascript that is located in your child theme.

    Doing that can save you some pain and agony later on. ;)

    If you need a specific example I'll post one tomorrow morning if I get a chance.

    Thanks for your advice.
    I've made a child theme to mod Untitled, but I'm not sure of how to override the original JScript file. I'll have to investigate more, but if nothing else works, I'll have to manually edit future updates to the theme (or avoid updating it). I can't live without my new homepage slideshow! :D
