    Howdy,

    I'm using the Bones Theme (Bones) to create a site and have installed the Header Image Slider Plugin,

    Getting no option to add the slider in header,

    Could you suggest a fix?

    Thx

    The Bones theme does not support header images, so you have to insert the boom_header_image() function where you want to display it. I added it at the end of header.php file and the slider showed up below the menu.

    Thanks Shazdeh,

    I'm a real novice at developing and really appreciate your advice,

    do you have a link where I can see the code to do this, or example of a similar fix?

    I think I'm not quite getting it!

    Just open bones/header.php file and add this at the end of the file:
    <?php boom_header_image() ?>
    and that's it!

    ah ha,

    the image box now appears although I still haven't got access to the Slider functions in my CMS - Appearance > Header

    Is this right?

    I can not access the Slider in my CMS,

    When I used the 2011 Theme it appeared under- Appearances > Header

    Does this make sense? Or am I confusing things more!

    That's the admin panel for the plugin. Go in there and upload photos!

    @soul_lotus: That theme does not support header images, so you have to insert the boom_header_image() function where you want to display it. Open your header.php file and add this function.

    I'm having a similar problem using the Thematic framework. I actually do get the control panel to add an image, but it doesn't list the nivo-slider option, nor does it actually insert the header image (even when I upload a static image) into the published page.

    I tried injecting the php code listed here into my header.php file, and it didn't resolve the issue, it only broke my page layout.

    Hi,

    I am trying to put a code for a header slider into my header.php for my child theme Plytag. Since I'm a novice, I would appreciate someone instructing me on this as if I was five years old. Seriously, please tell me exactly where to put this code.

    if (function_exists('get_thethe_image_slider')) {
    print get_thethe_image_slider('Slider Name');

    }
    The slider name is The The Image Slider.

    I have tried copying the header.php to my child theme and then added the code there, however I just keeping getting a blank website and an error message. Can you help me please.
