TheThe Image Slider
Adding thethe fly image slider to homepage (10 posts)

    So far I've read that if you copy <?php if (function_exists('get_thethe_image_slider')) {print get_thethe_image_slider('Slider Name'); }; ?> into index.php or header.php you can get the slider to show up on the home page. I've tried both and neither work. I also copied [thethe-image-slider name="YOUR SLIDER NAME"] into both locations still not showing up on homepage.
    I created a slide, but nothing is appearing. How do I make the image slider appear on my home page? I don't want it to replace the header. I would like it to appear below the header and before all the post.
    This live demo is exactly the placement I want for the slider on my blog. Perfect example!

    Great plugin. I have looked at alot and this one is exactly what i wanted. Sleek and easy to use. Here's how I set mine up. Maybe this will help with setting up yours. I installed the plugin. Then opened the "TheThe Fly" menu from the wp admin page. Then selected the "Image Slider" from the left sidebar of the admin page. I added a new slider. (when returning to the "Image Slider" page, it lists my new slider with the short code to use. Then I added slides to the slider. Then on one of my pages i added the short code to the page in HTML mode (not Visual mode) of the page editor. I added: [thethe-image-slider name="mainpage"]
    It works great.

    Thanks mfreder. I got that to work too. But I would like it outside of the main content box and in between the top nav bar and the content and right bar. I get it to work in the header.php page when I place the function text in but I cannot get it to work in the index.php page when I place the php code there. Any Suggestion? ....er anybody!

    i don't write php. can you tell me how to call that short code in html using php?

    The problem I am having is....
    I installed this successfully on my localhost. it worked perfect. when i moved it over to live, my slider no longer worked. i checked thethe fly slider settings in the admin bar. I see the slider i have created but the slider name is not present (however the short code shows the slider name). i have tried deleting it and recreating it, uninstalling it and re-activating it to no avail. every time i create a new slider, the slider name does not stick.

    I'm thinking if i can call the short code in the html, maybe it will work then.

    can you guys help?

    you can place <?php echo do_shortcode('[thethe-image-slider name="slidername"]'); ?>

    Change "slidername" with the name of your slider.
    where you want the slide to appear and I think that should work.

    I would like to have an answer to @fcct4119's question also! Not a programmer and have tried substituting the php function everywhere to no avail.

    Hi Guys

    I have the header and then below that is the manu bar and below that is where I want the image slider. so where exactly am I adding this short html code?

    I am not a programer so hopefully you guys make it a little simpler for me.

    Thanks

    Once I added images to the slider plug-in under the slider and slides tab the name of your slider is on the left. Copy the short code that is to the right of your slider and paste it in the content area of your page.
