    Is it possible to remove a slider from the home page when viewing the mobile site?

    Well, I know it is possible, but is it do-able through this plugin?

    Unfortunately, with the way WordPress is designed, one plugin cannot manipulate another plugin.

    So you'll have to do a "hack".

    The best way is to modify the slider plugin and have it only show if it is not a mobile device.

    The nice part is the WP Mobile Detector gives you access to a value inside the wp query object as well as a cookie you can check against.

    You could also put JavaScript in the footer that hides the slider, or removes it from the page if you'd like.

    I also have the same type of query.. I have just 1 slider on my home page located just under the menu header.

    I am not using any slider plugin, it is part of my theme which is on top of woocommerce.

    Would the best way be to action/hook the functions.php file of my theme? If so, what action would I call? The slider is in the form of a shortcode in my theme.

    Thanks in adv.

    You'll have to contact whoever made the theme to find out how you can deactivate it.
