    Is there anyway that the sample image on the minimum theme can be replaced with a rotating image and if so, how is it done?

     

    Many thanks

    There’s probably a simpler way, but I did it by creating a widgeted area for that space on the home page in the php code. My PHP chops are pretty weak. There’s most likely someone here who could give you a good show you the best way to code that.

    Anyway, then you can put whatever I want to in that space. Makes it easier for clients to make changes to that area. Even if they want to use a static image they can add it with a text widget rather than having to edit the PHP code.

    For a slideshow I use Genesis Responsive Slider in that widgeted area.

    thanks ted, my php chops are not even that far advanced ;)

    Could you possibly input show me how you did that, what the code is and where to insert it?  No worries if its too time consuming. Also can I have a look at the website that you did it on? I am curious to see how it looks.

     

    Many thanks

    Hey Jamie, sorry for the delay!

    Yeah, here are a few sites I’ve done with Minimum using Genesis Responsive Slider on the home page:

    http://tavphoto.com (my photography biz site)

    http://imageperceptions.com (my web biz site)

    http://goodkarmapretzels.com (client’s site)

    http://imageperceptions.com/rwc/ (client’s site, still in the works)

    http://imageperceptions.com/devious/ (client’s site, still in the works)
    email me at ted@imageperceptions.com and I’ll email you the converted Minimum theme I used for these sites. Then you can study the PHP pages and css, and see the work I did (remember, I’m really not a PHP guy at all – just hunting and pecking until I come up with something I like. I bet there’s a cleaner way to code these changes.)

    Hey Jamie,

    Just wanted to reach out, maybe you can let me know here in the forum when you email me. I do a fair amount of bulk deleting of emails and I wouldn’t want your message to get lost in the shuffle.
