Hello, I am trying to figure out how to add an image slider to my home page, Minimum Theme. dev.whitefishflyshop.com
I would like to place the image slider in the spot where the guy with the fish is. I dont seem to be able to out how to do that. My idea is…. I would like to add a widget area in that spot so I can just drop in a slider. Is someone out there that would be kind enough to show me how to add the widget area? Any help would be appreciated.
You could use this to add a slider – it’s a full width widget area – http://www.briangardner.com/welcome-text-widget/.
Thanks Anitac, Just a quick question, Do I just add the lines of code at the end of the file? It looks like I can add just register the widget area at the end of the current registration….. but not sure where to add the hook to welcome text widget? Forgive me as I know pretty much nothing about .php? Here is the code of my .php file
edited to remove code.
Do I just include the registry and then the hook directly after it or somewhere else? Any help is appreciated.
Just re-read his instructions. His instructions are the easiest way to add a full-width widget area. Just 1,2,3 and it’s there.
1. Register Your Widget Area – Open up your child theme’s functions.php file, and place the code he provided.
2. Hook the Welcome Text widget – Also in your child theme’s functions.php file, place the code he provided. Just place it right below the newly registered widgets.
3. Style Your Welcome Text – Open your child theme’s style.css file, place this the code he provided at the very bottom.
Thanks for you help anitac, pretty simple as you stated!
Looks like you haven’t added the slider in. Here’s a specific tut on Adding a Slider to the Minimum Theme. Let me know if you have any questions or still need help.
cdils he added a NextGen slider down below. You can see it scrolling there.
Oops – thanks, anitac. Shoulda kept on scrolling.
Meanwhile, I’d rather be fishing in Montana…
