How to setup Image Slider on the Home page

In this tutorial I will explain the process of setting up the Image Slider on the Home page.

In order for Image Slider to appear on the Home page correctly we will need to verify that “Front page displays latest post”. Navigate to WordPress dashboard -> Settings -> Reading and see if “Front page displays” is set to “Your latest posts”.

In the next step we will need to create “Featured Posts” that will act as image sliders. Go to WordPress dashboard -> Post -> Add New and create new posts.

  • Add a title in the Title entry box.
  • Add your post’s content in the Content box.
  • Add featured image. To insert featured image to the post please refer to this article: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails

Please refer to the Writing Posts article.

Put “Featured Posts” that we created in the separate category ( for example lets create new category “Slideshow” and associate featured posts with it ).

Navigate to WordPress Dashboard -> Appearance -> Theme Options -> Home Page and set “Display Featured Image Slider” to “ON”. Select category “Slideshow” in the drop-down box for “Select Featured Posts Category“.
