    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;

    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? :-)







    You can remove them using CSS or PHP code.

    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.

    .home #header, 
    .home #footer, 
    .home #nav { 
    display: none; 

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