    I want to use the Smooth Slider Plugin on top of my blogs only on front page. And, I'm using the free version of Platform theme though I know that I have to paste the PHP code of Smooth Slider in Platform: template.postloop.php, but I'm not getting where exactly I've to paste it. As, I know nothing about PHP, so please provide enough explanation. It would be very helpful for me.

    Thanks !

    Can you access your site using FTP?

    If you want the slider to appear on the front page then you will want to post the PHP in index.php for your theme. Don't post it in a loop or your slider will appear everytime the loop is executed.

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id="wrapper">
    	<div id="top"><?php get_smooth_slider(); ?></div>
    	<div id="content"  class="home">
    		Lorem ipsum....
    	</div>
    	<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    </div>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
