Homepage slider

  1. I'm having trouble learning how to begin and work and get my homepage slider to work on the new STAY theme. Can you help me with this?

    The blog I need help with is publicans.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi Adam the directions for creating the slides are on the theme's description page at http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/stay/

    Please follow the steps and let us know exactly which step is giving you problems.

  3. Hey! Thanks for getting back. I saw that page but don't understand any of it I'm afraid. Could you explain it to me?

  4. First you must create a static Page. You can call it anything you want. Since you want to use it as your Home Page, I'd suggest calling it "Home."

    While creating the page, you'll see Page Attributes on the right side of the Edit screen. Assign the Home Template as the page's template, and save the page.

    Next, go to Settings -> Reading, and set your Home page to be the static page that you just created.

    Now, create some pages that you want to appear in the slider. They can be titled anything you want. You will need to upload a Featured Image that is at least 960 pixels wide. You should see the Featured Image box on the right side of your screen while editing a page. Once you're done with each page, save it.

    Finally, go to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Customize. You will now see a preview of your site. If you click the button that says Home Slider on the right, you will see 6 drop down boxes where you can select the order of the pages you want to display in the slider.

    Please follow the steps above, and let me know which, if any, gives you issues.

  5. Thanks for this, awesome description. But having seen it, it's not quite what I need. Is there a theme with a slider on the page the posts go up on? Thanks again!

  6. wow... thank a lot (y)

    Please work through the instructions provided above.
    http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/homepage-slider?replies=9#post-1255370 and consult the theme description here http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/stay/

  11. I finally figured out how to set up the home slider on the Stay theme and get rid of the 2 home page menu links I had after about 2 hours searching through these forums. I read the instructions about 10 times: http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/stay/

    The step that is NOT included in the instructions, but was mentioned in the comment above by @andrewcpht, is:

    Next, go to Settings -> Reading, and set your Home page to be the static page that you just created.

    Please add that step to your instructions so that others know to point the website's homepage to the page you created to serve as the homepage! Thanks! (so glad I found this post)
