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?
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.)
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.
Just saw this post from Carrie Dils that will show you how to add the code for the homepage slider.
I have just emailed you regarding the above issue, once again, as in my email, many thanks!
