  • I am struggling with this issue as well. Do you / anyone already solved this?

    Could not resolve. I used another one of the many sliders available.

    I still would like to place the slider in the header area. Did you find out how this could me done. Does anybody else know how to solve this issue.

    Hi, check out this video, it will show you how to do that.

    To insert WOWSlider into header you should use WOWSlider PHP code.

    Go to
    WOW Slider -> All Sliders

    and click on “Excerpt view” button at the top right corner. Additional line “for templates” with php code will appear under line with shortcode.

    You should add this php code into your header (Appearance->Editor->Header), for example:

    <?php wowslider(1); ?>

    Wowslider, can you advise me as to how/where exactly to insert this code in the header.php file? (No, I’m not a top coder)

    You should add WOWSleder php code in the place where you want a slideshow to appear.

    Not sure if its still an issue but at least for WP theme 2011 I copied the WOW PHP code and pasted it into the header.php using the (Appearance->Editor->Header) select header.php from listing on the right while in Editor. I pasted the code replacing the following code,

    <?php
    // Check to see if the header image has been removed
    $header_image = get_header_image();
    	f ( $header_image ) :
    // Compatibility with versions of WordPress prior to 3.4.
    	if ( function_exists( 'get_custom_header' ) ) {
    // We need to figure out what the minimum width should be for our featured image.
    // This result would be the suggested width if the theme were to implement flexible widths.
    $header_image_width = get_theme_support( 'custom-header', 'width' );
    	} else {
    $header_image_width = HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH;
    					}
    					?>
    			<a href="<?php echo esc_url( home_url( '/' ) ); ?>">
    				<?php
    					// The header image
    					// Check if this is a post or page, if it has a thumbnail, and if it's a big one
    					if ( is_singular() && has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ) &&
    							( /* $src, $width, $height */ $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), array( $header_image_width, $header_image_width ) ) ) &&
    							$image[1] >= $header_image_width ) :
    						// Houston, we have a new header image!
    						echo get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, 'post-thumbnail' );
    					else :
    						// Compatibility with versions of WordPress prior to 3.4.
    						if ( function_exists( 'get_custom_header' ) ) {
    							$header_image_width  = get_custom_header()->width;
    							$header_image_height = get_custom_header()->height;
    						} else {
    							$header_image_width  = HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH;
    							$header_image_height = HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT;
    						}
    						?>
    					<img src="<?php header_image(); ?>" width="<?php echo $header_image_width; ?>" height="<?php echo $header_image_height; ?>" alt="" />
    				<?php endif; // end check for featured image or standard header ?>
    			</a>
    			<?php endif; // end check for removed header image ?>

    It appears to be functioning correctly at least on my end. If I am incorrect please, anyone, let me know.

    You did everything right.

    Hey there. So I did exactly what Tony Pratt did (thanks for the tip!) and it worked perfectly until I updated the twentyeleven theme. I then tried to make the same substitution but every time I do, none of my posts or the slider show up. It is just the background to my blog and title. What am I doing wrong? I am not an expert coder so I have no clue why it isn’t working anymore. Thanks for your help in advance!

    hello please help. this is my header i am new to wordpress and html etc. i am trying to add a wow slider in the main pager and other but i am having issues. where do i add my wowslide here? [wowslider id=”1″]
