To create a slideshow like that shown in the demo:
- Go to the theme options panel and select Homepage.
- Under the “Homepage Slider” section select ThinkUpSlider.
- Expand the box and upload the image you want to use. You can also add a title, description and choose to link that particular slide.
- To add a new slide press “Add Slide”. You can then choose to rearrange the order of slides by dragging the slides you want to reposition.
Please let me know if that solved the issue. If it didn’t then please add a link to your site so I can look at the code.
Hi and thanks for your response, the thing is I want my images of the slider to have text on them as the ones of the preview an also the link to a page but I cant find the option that allows the title appear over the image. The slider is working fine just want to put text over the images
When you add the text it should automatically put this over the image just like in the demo. We’ve put together a very quick (rough & ready) screencast which shows exactly what to do:
If you still have problems then we’ll need a link to your site to see what is causing the issue.
Hi thankyou, I dont know why in my version of the Thinkup Slider it doesnt show the description option just title and link.
Im using local host so I dont know how you can link to my site, the address that shows is
We can’t access a localhost install unfortunately. Also that is a link to the admin area. We just need a link to the frontend of your site, the homepage.
Once the theme is install on a live environment we can see your site and take a look. Can you put a test site up so this can be done?
Yes i will try to put it today, but the options that i have are different, in mine under >enable homepage slider< it appears >Homepage Slider Shortcode< and i saw in yours doesnt appear
So as I mention before I dont have the option to put description only title and link and neither of those appear at the image.
Thank you so much for your time and help Afzaal!
Please update to the latest version of Engrave (Lite). What is the number you see next to “Engrave (Lite)” at the top of the options panel?
I’ve just downloaded the latest version from the download page and the ThinkUpSlider is there. Please try deleting your current version of Engrave (Lite). Then download a fresh copy and reinstall.
See if this solves the problem. I’ll wait to hear how you get on.
Hi Afzaal, I just delete the old files and download the theme again, uploaded to my host and it still the same options that THinkupslider gives me. No description and doesnt show text in image like you did.
Also still appears the option of Homepage Slider Shortcode
This sounds like a cache issue. Have you got plugin installed like WP Total Cache or Super Cache? This might prevent you from seeing updates.
The only way we can really help you is for you to install the theme in a live environment. We can then check everything fully. Let me know when you have the theme on a live install.
I have my site live now
hope you can help me
Yes we can help. Please can you setup an admin account for our support team in your WordPress admin area and also an FTP account. We can then check your install fully and diagnose the issue.
DO NOT post your login details here and also DO NOT provide your own login details. Setup new login details specifically for our support team which can then be deleted once we’ve fixed the issue.
Please email the login the details to the email address you contacted yesterday so avoid disclosing any sensitive login information in this public forum.
Hi Afzaal i just send you the login details to the mail [email address redacted], let me know if theres a problem reciving them.
Can you confirm. Is this the first time you’ve installed Engrave (Lite) v1.4.7? Have you used any previous versions? Was this an upgrade?
Also, have you ever downloaded the theme from anywhere other than WordPress.org? If so, please specify where this was.
