    You can try using WP-Cycle – you add images and can include a URL or not. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-cycle/. It would just rotate images you put in there. You can set the width and height just like a regular slider. Read their instructions on how to add it to your theme.

    The only problem with the bit of code you’re trying to add is the quotes you’re using (that’s what’s breaking functions.php). If you add

    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

    like that, with the straight quotes, it will allow you to use the shortcode you want.

    @JestersTear – thank you for your response.  The code above added the slider controls, but the images aren’t there.  I added the code to the  very bottom of functions.php.  Is that the best place to put it?

     

    Any other suggestions?

    I’ve placed it between } and /** Register Additional Sidebar Areas */ simply because the Sidebar Areas should be the last thing in functions.php, but it will work the way you’ve done it, it’s just best practice to leave the Sidebar Areas for last.

    Which plugin are you trying to use for the slideshow?

    The first link shows functions.php

    The second second shows the slideshow controls and if I mouse over the edges the < > controls appear, but no images.

     

    I’ve deactivated all plugins except Cyclone Slider2.  I’m still doing something wrong…

    You’re adding it in the correct place, but I’ve just installed Cyclone Slider 2 and taken it for a test drive and it works for me. Will Cyclone Slider 2′s shortcode work correctly for you somewhere else (like a page, for example)? Because I think this might have more to do with Cyclone Slider 2′s options than with the theme itself. Can you show me the options you’re choosing in the plugin?

    Sometimes it just takes a little had holding to gently explain to someone that they’re an idiot!  The slideshow height was somehow set to 0.

     

    LOL,  Thank you for your patience!

    LOL, I’m glad it was something simple, I do things like that all the time. ;)

    *hint* I’d love to see the end result once you finish configuring it. *hint*

    Almost done.  Now I just need to figure out how to make the Home Left, Center and Right Area Widgets look like the demo.  ;)

    The pages are added by using the Genesis – Featured Page widget, simply checkmark Show Featured Image and give it whatever title the page has (or a different title, if you prefer), and you’re good to go.
