[resolved] How do I make the slider appear on my website? (6 posts)

    Hi, I'm pretty new to php and WordPress so I need some help to use the slideshow. So my website is http://www.bestgame-ever.com and if you look at where it says "Hello world" (or the whole white part in the middle), I would like to change that into a image slider. But where do I put the php code and how? I hope I can get an answer so I can learn how to do it myself.

    Hi,

    Did you write '!slideshow_deploy!' there yourself, or did it appear?

    If it appeared you should go to your slideshow settings and set 'Avoid content filter' to 'No'.

    If you did write it there yourself and you wrote it in a post or a page, you could simply use the shortcode provided on the slideshow settings page to show the slideshow in your post or page. If it's hard HTML/PHP you wrote it in, you should use the piece of PHP code the slideshow settings page provides.

    Now I got it to work, but I also discovered that I had to remove the title and subtitle because they were in the way of the slideshow and made it look messed up. So I deleted them with :
    #featured,
    .featured-title,
    .featured-subtitle {
    display:none;
    }

    , but now the whole white box disappeared. How can I replace the middle space where the white box was, with a slideshow?.

    Is it anyway to change the theme code maybe because now I can't add anything via shortcode since I removed the white space.

    You're not only settings the title and the subtitle to not display, but you're also setting #featured invisible. Do it like so, and it will work:

    #featured .featured-title,
    #featured .featured-subtitle {
    display:none;
    }

    But why don't you just delete the title and description from your page or theme?

    To display the slideshow instead of the #featured box, you should go into your theme and replace the #featured box with the slideshow's PHP function.

    Yeah, I could edit the theme but the problem is that I have no idea of how to make a child-theme. :/ Only if I could just make the white part disappear some other way...

    Also really a big thanks for helping me out man. :)

    There's a lot of info on child themes, if you'd like to learn about them: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Otherwise you'd have to edit your theme, look for the featured element and replace or delete it.

    You could also try to set the featured element to 'display: none' and the slideshow container to 'display: block', perhaps that that would work.
