    I would like to use this slider on my front page but I am unsure as to where to put the code. Can you help me please? I am using the corporate child theme.

    Depending on your theme, you can apply the slider based on it’ developer’s instructions.

    Based on what I viewed in the install instructions for the slider mentioned above, you can either edit home.php to add a new segment (ID) above the existing widgets and below the navigation or use the built in widgets of the theme’s home page in conjunction with php widget  and the plugins settings page.

    You need to add code to the home.php if you are using it. If you want to show it after the header…..

    // Add Slider

    add_filter( ‘genesis_after_header’,  ‘add_my _slider’ );

    // Slider

    function add_my_slider() {

    wp_content_slider();

    }

    ** code tags do not work properly

    I just took a quick look and it seems that you’re loading two instances of that slider, or more than one slider.

    That slider you’re using hasn’t been updated for a year-and-a-half, which could be part of the problem.

    Have a look at this one called Soliloquy Lite: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/soliloquy-lite/

    Also note the width of  “home-middle-1″ – you are placing a 900 px slider in a 285 px box

    Thanks so much John and Shadow! I removed the slider that hadn’t been updated in a while.  I tried Soliloquy but couldn’t get it to work. So I installed http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/m-vslider/  and it works great.

    Do you think it matters if I don’t change the size of the box? It’s showing up perfectly on the site and I’m not planning on using the other “home-middle” spaces.

    Thanks again for all of your help :)

    Beth (briegger)-  Can you share your header code from http://k2smarketing.com/cmacco/ here.

    I love the blues and the menus?  I am doing web dev for a Prof. Services Proj Mgmt Company.  Once I go live; I’ll share the link here.

     

    Thanks
