    Hey everyone!

    This may be a dumb question, but I can’t find any documentation about this. I’d like gcinetworks.ca to be similar to demo.studiopress.com/outreach/in terms of:

    1) Homepage Slider: How do I add this plugin/widget to the homepage? I thought it would have been included in the theme.

    2) Homepage Boxes (below the slider on white bg): I assumed these are the “Home page box” widgets, but when I add a text box to them, nothing appears on the homepage.

    3) Upper Nav (in top right): I’d like to replicate the alignment.

     

    Any help is much appreciated!!

    Thanks,

    I’ve added the top nav – thanks SoZo!

    However, I’m still having issues adding the homepage slider + boxes. In the WP Reading Settings, I selected a static page to be my homepage. This page is using the default layout template. The slider settings have been configured and the widget added to the featured section.

    I must be missing something….

    YOu need to eave the reading settings at their defaults in order to use the home.php template, i.e. “Front page displays” shoudl be set to “Your latest posts” and both drop downs set to “Select”
