Design Your Own Website with WordPress
The picture of the Front Page above displays the slider within the “Content” area. This is a good indication that this
slider can be used in the blogging area. Why not create a slider that displays the full width of the page at the top of the
page, within the header section.
(These days, most Custom Themes comes with a variety of sliders as per default settings. You only need to assemble all
the information, change the layout options and the website is set.)
Anyway, see what you did to create the slider:
? Designed 5 images with dimensions of 600 x 250 pixels.
? Created a new slideshow and gave it the name Home Page Slider.
? Uploaded 5 images to attach to the slider.
? Changed the slider settings to correspond with the image sizes.
? Set the slider speed and animation duration.
? Copy & Pasted the shortcode to the Home Page (Design Your Own Website).
? Viewed your saved changes.
In the following lesson you will be shown how to insert the slider within the header section of the website.
