  • Resolved PierottiMedia


    Hi I’ve been designing a website with the raindrops theme for a client and he wants the header image to be replaced by a slideshow of images (timed slider, not a manual slider).

    However, I’ve been having trouble editing the code to put in the slideshow. Please help!

    My website is

    The plugin is Content Slide Plugin and they want me to put the following code into the header.php file:
    <?php if(function_exists('wp_content­_slid­er')) { wp_content_slider(); } ?>

    Where do I put this?

    Hi PierottiMedia

    If you want to customize the theme, in order to customize is not lost in the update of the theme, you need to create a child theme

    The creation method of a Child Theme

    Child theme name:mysite

    Creation of – theme holder
    Creation of – stylesheet

    style.css is created in the
    The contents are as follows.
    Creation of a style sheet

    Theme Name: mysite
    Author: Your name
    Author URI:
    Version: 0.1

    Usually, when making a child theme, it is explained that the style of a parent theme is imported as follows, but in rained Rops, it is unnecessary.
    the child theme is detected and it imports automatically.

    /* Raindrops No need import rules like below*/
    @import url('../twentyten/style.css');

    make file functions.php
    ver1.200 ~

    add_action( 'switch_theme', 'puddle_uninstall' );
    function puddle_uninstall(){

    This description is intended to use in a child theme, and change settings of Raindrops, if you uninstall, delete the configuration changes of the parent theme.
    If you did not delete, you may be when you install the new Raindrops, correct, it is not displayed by default.

    Next Change from header image to slideshow

    copy from Raindrops header.php to child theme header.php.

    if ( true == $raindrops_link_unique_text ) {
                echo raindrops_header_image( 'elements' );
            } else {
                echo raindrops_header_image( 'home_url' );

    change below

    if(function_exists('wp_content­_slid­er')) { wp_content_slider(); }

    Thank you.
