[Theme: Coraline] Autoslide or Header Image Rotator (2 posts)

    Hello,

    So after someone helped me with code and tweaking it, I have the Coraline theme header section fixed at the top, while the borders of both header and body are fluid. Here is the code I have in my Child Theme:

    #header {
    position: fixed;
    top: 0;
    margin-left: 0;
    background: rgb(255, 255, 255); /* The Fallback */
    background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 1);
    height: 300px;
    width: 90%;
    }
    #content-box {
    width: 100%;
    margin-top: 300px;
    }
    .two-column #container {
    max-width: 90%;
    }

    Now I think one of the best features of the Twentyeleven theme was the nifty little autoslide and image settings so that your header could change images frequently. I know there is the random image generator, but I was thinking something more frequent than just refreshing the page (every 5 seconds or so; possibly clickable?)

    Is there a simple way to bring that function into Coraline? I installed CIMY Image Rotator, but I'm not sure where to put the code that it generates- dropping it into the Child Theme didn't do anything.

    Thanks for your input!

    Update:

    I tried using Header Image Slider Plugin, which is pretty great (options for navigation and controlling slide speed) with one strange drawback: though it says it can be used with Custom Headers, the images it creates (for the slide) cover the menu in Coraline. I get perfectly rotating headers, but now my menu is invisible.

    I don't know why it's doing that, but thus far it seems a better solution than CIMY Image Rotator. Any thoughts?
