Active Slider on Front Page
I’d like to activate an auto rotating slider of two or three photos with text. Thought it was an option and now I can’t find where to do it. So how do I do that?
My site is http://www.mindthegappr.com
It looks like you have two problems on your hand. You’ll need to address this one first:
The /wp-content/themes/onyx/cache folder is not writeable. You’ll need to change to 777 or 755 (depending on your web server’s settings) before you’re able to see your images. You should be able to do this with your FTP client. If you’re web host has a proprietary file manager, you should be able to do this there as well.
Once corrected, your logo will display and your slideshow will be able to render images as well.
To create a slideshow, see here:
To insert a slideshow, either use one of the bundled content templates (You’ll need to change the slideshow ID to the one you want to use) or use the “Insert Slideshow” button from your editor toolbar.
I got it working. How do I mimic my current front page (http://mindthegappr.com/)? I’ve tried resizing the photos, but slideshow pushes the copy below them. How can I fix it? Thanks.

I’m not sure what you mean. The text appears to the right of the image for me.
The header still appears to be broken:
I see the image is there, so it must be permissions related:
This is the preview for the slider… the copy isn’t next to the images. I’ve adjusted the size of the slider.
It’s difficult to say be the screenshot. Can you provide a live link so I can inspect the elements? It could be that your slideshow is set to a width wider than its parent container.
It looks like shit right now… photos aren’t working… I’m beyond frustrated.
And now the photos are working? WTH? So confused at this point.
I don’t see anything in the source that would tell it to float left (if that’s what you’re attempting).
You might try:
[two_thirds] [slideshow shortcode….] [/two_thirds] [one_third_last] ...content… [/one_third_last]
Got you. This is the code which show up:
[raw][slideshow effect=“slide” category=“545” width=“600” height=“250” autoplay=“false” speed=“1000” pagination=“true” prevnext=“true”][/raw]
Where do I put the suggested code? Or do I need to go into the style sheet?
Newbie isn’t the right title for me… WPDunce would work better.
