[resolved] how to keep featured posts slide show, but put static page below it (3 posts)

    my site is... http://gamecatz.com/wptheme1/

    i'm using the zincious theme..

    i wanted to have the slide show on the home page, and have the "about us" as static page below it instead of the latest posts...

    i went to settings --> reading and set a static page as "about us", but what happens is that the slide show is gone and all that the frontage displays is the "about us" page...

    please help! thanks

    It could be that the slideshow is configured to show only on your blog page. It should be configured to show in your front page instead.

    If this is the case and the slideshow was called on the theme files you will see something like this in your theme:

    if (is_home()) {
     //slideshow code
    }

    You must change it into:

    if (is_front_page()) {
     //slideshow code
    }

    Or the slideshow could be called only in the index.php file and not on the page.php file of your theme.

    that is perfect! thanks jomsky! 5 stars for you sir!

    i simply changed "is_home" to "is_front_page" on header.php, and solved it!
