    My client asks that their home page only have the nextgen slideshow I created for them and the slideshow is the link to the “about” page. The link I can do OK.

    Any thoughts on how I edit the home page to include nothing but the slideshow, full width of the site container?

    And, would a slider be better than the nextgen slideshow?

    A large question, I know. Any help welcome.

    Thanks all.

    Select the landing page as the home page under Settings > Reading

    Copy this code from the view raw link and add the code for a new home page widget area to the end of your child themes functions.php file using a text editor like Notepad++

    Change the hook position if needed

    Brad, thanks. I guess I’m  not as nimble on WP as I thought!

    The landing page is the home page, as per the settings.

    I added the code to the function.php file and ftp’d it.

    I added the widget to the home page and get what you see here; http://theinnerhealthstudio.com/

    I would just like the slideshow to appear on the home page, no header, no footer, no nav bar. Any other advice or do I go back to WP school? :-)

    Thanks,

    Bill

    You can remove them using CSS or PHP code. http://my.studiopress.com/snippets/

    Looks like you have an error in your functions file.

    Might be easier for you to use CSS code:

    Paste this code at the end of your child themes style.css file.
    [css]
    .home #header,
    .home #footer,
    .home #nav {
    display: none;
    }
    [/css]

    Tip. Good idea to install WordPress locally with your theme and test code there if you want to DIY coding.
