Installing WP-Cycle into Twenty Eleven Theme (6 posts)

    I'm trying to install the WP-Cycle Slideshow into the Header of the Titlte Page of the Twenty Eleven Theme.

    I've read that you have to enter some code into the header.php file, but I'm not sure where to do this?

    Do I do this on the header.php file on my computer? If so, then what? Do I then have to upload that somehow to the website?

    I am hosted on wordpress.org and my current header.php file looks like this....(so if I put the slideshow code into this below, where should it go?)

    " /> >
    5, 'sort_column' => 'menu_order', 'container' => 'ul', 'menu_id' => 'nav', 'menu_class' => 'nav', 'theme_location' => 'primary-menu' ) ); } else { ?>
    • class="current_page_item">
    search
    /images/logo.png" alt="" />

    Thanks!

    Any ideas of how to make the Header in Twenty Eleven a Slideshow?

    Brent, try using Appearance->Editor to paste the proper code into header.php in your theme/child theme.

    I need to do the same thing. I'll post the code as soon as I've got it running.

    The idea is to run a slideshow of all uploaded header images, instead of just one randomly selected image.

    The function get_uploaded_header_images() looks promising. I'll use that to get an array of image urls, and then use a simple slider, like Jon Raasch's Simple jQuery Slideshow (jonraasch.com).

    Check out this new header-image-slider plugin.

    Other than in some mass of header code, I haven't found where exactly wp-cycle is supposed to be installed. It must be only for advanced users.
