  • Hey all

    awesome slider, it’s the only one i use for client projects.

    I often get asked to add a button to the slider, has anyone done this?

    it would be good hook into the slider, add a new meta box or even custom field, then a different “read more” button text could be added for each slide

    any thoughts on doing this appreciated.

    just kinda worked this out if anyone else needs to add some linking text.

    it does require a plugin mod, but only simple, see below

    in flexslider-hg.php around line 250, you will see this:

    $rtn .= get_the_excerpt();

    replace it with this:

    if($url) { $rtn .= $a_tag_opening; }
    $rtn .= get_the_excerpt();
    if($url) { $rtn .= '</a>'; }

    it uses the excerpt, which becomes your linking text (add some text like read more, view project etc)

    bit of css styling and it works a treat!

    use

    .slide-data > a

    for the css class…
