I am working to migrate an existing site over to StudioPress, and am using the Streamline child theme on the not-yet-live site. As the home/front page is not a static page, I am unclear as to how I go about incorporating a slider between the home featured widgets and the content-sidebar-wrap.
(I’d also like to know how I go about turning the post-info off for the home page posts, but… first things first. )
I’ve glanced through the snippet headings and nothing jumped out at me, but admittedly I’m not fully familiar with all of the moving parts. Hopefully, someone will be able to a least point me in a general direction.
Thanks for any/all assistance.December 11, 2013 at 7:36 pm #78472

Thanks, Brad, for pointing me in that direction. I have learned that, while I’ve picked up a lot about WP in recent weeks, there’s still much, much, much to read and learn. Thankfully, I’m loving the journey….December 29, 2013 at 2:11 am #81779
Well, after being sidetracked by the holidays, I am now back. I’ve installed the Soliloquy slider, based on your recommendations, and tried hooking it at various points using Simple Hooks, using both the short code and php function, but none that I’ve tried seem to get the job done.
At one point, when I had the slider hooked in before the content-sidebar-wrap (which is where I thought it needed to go), it did show up on the home page, but unfortunately was layered over the hfeed content. When I moved it to other hook locations, it simply disappeared.
I didn’t try every possibility, and I’m sure there’s some element I simply overlooked. Hopefully the morning and/or a bit more of your insight will provide me the clarity I need. Thanks again.December 29, 2013 at 2:35 am #81782
Please copy ALL the code from the view raw link and paste it at the end of your child themes functions.php file using a text editor like Notepad++
After you create a new slider and add images, change the 88 to the i.d of your slider in the code.

Call me silly and lesson learned … As I was reading, I thought “But I already tried that,” position and all. I’m guessing my problem is that I tried it in Simple Hooks and not directly through the child theme function. Thanks, Brad. You rock!December 30, 2013 at 5:42 am #82012
No worries Holly.
Simple hooks is a great stepping stone for learning about the different hooks and the positions they execute in your theme.
