Support » Plugin: MetaSlider » Don’t know where to find a template file to add Meta Slider code

  • Hello. I just installed Meta Slider for the first time and have created my first slide. However, I don’t know where to find a template file/where to put the code to make it appear on the home page (using code is not in my skill set yet!). I do know that it works, because I figured out how to use the short code to test a slider in one of my posts.

    I looked through all of the previous forums but could not find an answer specific to this. Also, changing my theme is not an option.

    Can someone please help? Thank you.

    Hi there,

    This will depend on which theme you’re using as they can vary in the way there are configured.

    It will also depend on whether you want the slider to appear in the header AND only on the homepage, in which case you’d need to edit the header template and restrict Meta Slider to the homepage.

    Do you have a link to your slider?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Thank you for your response. This is the theme that I have: https://gorillathemes.com/wordpress-tourism-theme/. As far as the slider link, do you mean the url when I am logged into my back end where the first slider I created is located?

    I want the slider to appear on my home page under the navigation bar where I currently have a static photo (location of the previous slider that came with the theme that is not working anymore). Please see https://amazingescapades.com/.

    Thank you.

    It looks like the slider and slides are still there.

    I can see an error on the site which might be preventing the slider from working.

    It would be worth trying to remove the error before doing anything else as it could be that the existing slider works and it could be that the same error also prevents Meta Slider from working.

    Try reverting any recent changes, particularly any new plugins first. If that doesn’t work then try disabling all plugins. Finally if that doesn’t work try reaching out to the theme’s developer.

    Feel free to come back here afterwards if you’d still like to integrate Meta Slider.

    The errors are in these files:

    Thank you for your response. I am checking into this.
