FAQ

How does it work?

Put the below code snippet in your blog posts/pages, where you want to show featured slider:

<?php
    if(get_option('t4b_option')==Enabled) {
        if(function_exists(show_Featured_Post_Slider())) { show_Featured_Post_Slider(); }
    }
?>
How to prevent duplicate posts from displaying

To prevent duplicate posts from displaying while using featured slider, take the help from the below code snippet to get an idea before quering. It will help you to get all the posts that have been queried, except the ones we have already outputted in the featured slider:

<?php
    $stickies = t4bFeaturedPost();
    $temp = $wp_query;
    $wp_query = null;
    if(get_option('t4b_option') == Enabled) {
        $wp_query = new WP_Query(array( 'post__not_in' => $stickies ));
    } else {
        $wp_query = new WP_Query();
    }
?>
//Then put the rest of the codes.
