Support » Plugin: Easing Slider » Easing Slider for Homepage Only Not Working…

    Hello,

    I’m trying to insert the easing slider for my homepage header only on the twentyeleven theme. I have moved the navigation above the header image(s) and have the easing header on there, but the images are off to the right of the body in Firefox. The sliding image is under the nav in what looks like the right location in Chrome, but the nav buttons won’t work. It’s seems to be working fairly close in IE, minus the bottom of the first image doesn’t fade it…not a huge deal, but would be nice if it was uniform. Also, I’m not quite sure how to code it to only have the sliding header on the homepage. I’m not the programming guru, so any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

    The current url is http://www.hutchmd.com/reeders

    Thanks,

    Hi. It appears to be caused by the way you’ve achieved the positioning of the navigation. It doesn’t appear to be rendering the same in all browsers.

    I think you’ll need to find a new way to achieve the same positioning. Also make sure to put the floated elements inside clearfix’d divs, making sure everything plays nicely.

    As it is more of a theme styling issue, I can’t give much more advice on how to fix what is occurring. It isn’t directly related to the slideshow itself, just the way it is getting positioned relative to the other page elements above it. Sorry about that.

    Thanks for the quick response. I’ll look into fixing my styles…I’m still at the “hacker” level in the coding world. Do you think you can point me in the right direction of just having the sliding header on the homepage?

    Thanks again!

    Haha, don’t worry about it. No harm doing some hacking, great way to learn.

    To display the slideshow on just the home page, try using this in your theme file to display the slideshow:

    <?php
    if ( is_home() && function_exists('easing_slider') ) {
        easing_slider();
    }
    ?>

    Alternatively, if that doesn’t work, you can change the is_home() to is_front_page().

    Thnak you MatthewRuddy, the plugin is very user friendly and simple. Amazing!!!!!

    Great to hear 🙂

    Sorry to hijack, but in which theme file should the code above go in to?

    Thanks

    It depends on your theme and where you wish to display the slideshow. Not much more of an answer I can give than that. Trial and error is probably the best way to find out!

    I want the slider on the home page only…any clue as to which theme file i should be looking for (and which to avoid)

    Thanks

    Again, this completely depends on your theme. Try the index.php files, header.php file or page.php file. If none of those, I really don’t know. Sorry.

    No need to apologise Matthew…I understand.
