    Love this…

    Just, I think it really needs the ability to keep the first part of the post, and then have the slider… at least for my use :))

    I’m doing book summaries.. so I’d like to keep the intro for the book at the top of each post, then have all the content broken down into slides.

    I also have recipes.. as “remedies”… so I’d like to keep the intro about the “disease” at the top of the post, and allow them to use slides to browse the different remedies.

    I also have long posts for on-going research, so I’d like to keep the intro about the research and have the slides break-up the different sections of research.

    In all cases, I kind of need a way to keep the “top paragraph” at least, before it goes into “slide-format”.

    Is there a way for it to leave certain text on the page?

    I noticed that someone on your blog commented that they found a way to do it, unfortunately they didn’t share their method.. (except to say that they used a ‘custom fields trick’) I’m hoping you know how they achieved it?

    Hi @happyches,

    The best way to achieve this would be to use a custom field. Basically, you use a custom field to enter the text that you want to persist on each page, then place the call for that custom field above the_content in your theme. For more information on custom fields, see the post in the WordPress Codex.

    For what it’s worth, your request is one I have received a few times, so I may try to implement it as part of the plugin in the next version if I can think of a practical way to make it work.

    Good luck!
