    Hi there everyone

    I’m modifying the Executive Pro theme at the moment and I’m wondering if anybody could help me with how to remove the links from my slider widget title and image.

    I only need the slider for visual purposes rather than click-throughs.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks a lot

    Tom

    1. Goto Genesis > Slider Settings.
    2. In “Content Settings” section, uncheck “Do not link Slider image to Post/Page” option.

    Thanks Davinder!

    I can’t believe I missed that in the settings… I thought I was going to have to modify the plugin!

    Thanks for your help!

    Actually, I’ve just realised that doesn’t solve the title link issue, I need to get rid of that.

    In the Content Settings section for the Slider, make sure the “Display Post/Page Title in Slider?” option is unchecked, as well as the “Display Content in Slider?” option, and you’ll only get images.

    Thanks, but I do actually want the content and title in the slider, my problem is I just don’t want the post title to be a link… I’ve a feeling i might have to mess around with the html / php.

    You’d have to customize the plugin output for that combination, or use a different slider plugin that has the feature you want. Not sure of one that does that off the top of my head, and I’ve used a couple others that are responsive.

    Thanks Summer, I thought so.

    I guess I’ll raise a ticket… fingers crossed they’ll help!

    Hey Tom

    I know this is months later, but did you ever find a solution to this problem? I’m also trying to remove the link to the title in the slider.

    Thanks!

    Hi Cara

    In the end I had to use a plugin to direct the links to where I wanted them to go instead.

    The plugin is called ‘Page Links To’

    I’m sure there will be a way to do this, but support wouldn’t help with that unfortunately.

    Hi everyone. I was also looking for this. The solution isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty easy to do…
    You need to go to Plugins > Editor and then select the Genesis Responsive Slider plugin.
    Open the genesis-responsive-slider/genesis-responsive-slider.php file and look for this line:
    <h2>” rel=”bookmark”><?php the_title(); ?></h2>

    Remove the a href link, making it:
    <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>

    Worked for me. Not sure what will happen when the plugin updates…

    Sorry, I just noticed that the first line of code changed and removed the php part when I posted the message.
    This is the line of code you are looking for:

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

    When the plugin updates your mod will be overwritten. Generally it is a bad idea to mod plugins like this for that reason. That’s why we love plugin devs that let us filter :)
