Homepage Slider

  1. Create a Static Front Page

The slider is visualized ONLY when there is a static front page set for your website. So, the first step is:

1.2. Navigate to Left Menu -> Settings -> Reading
1.3. Select ‘A static page (select below)’, then choose pages for ‘Homepage’ and ‘Posts page’
1.4. Save changes

2. Update Slider Settings

2.1. Login to your Admin Panel
2.2. Navigate to Left Menu -> Appearance -> Customize
2.3. Open ‘Slider’ Section
2.4. Check the ‘Display Slider’ checkbox
2.5. Set Slider Images (‘Slide # Image’ fields) and Text (‘Slide # Content’ fields) for the different Slides

2.6. Save Changes

Homepage Static Content

You need to navigate to Admin Panel -> Left Menu -> Appearance -> Widgets

Then insert ‘Text Widget’ into each of the widget areas ‘Homepage Column #1’ and ‘Homepage Column #2’.

Once the text widget is inserted, you add an image by clicking on ‘Add Media’ button and then align the image to left:

The ‘Read more’ link can be created by selecting a text and click only on link icon, and then insert a URL for it:

If you want the link to be displayed as a button, you need to open the widget content as ‘Text’ (by clicking on ‘Text’ tab), navigate to the link (<a href=”…”>) and insert class=”btn” into it, here is an example code:

<a href="#" class="btn">Read More</a>

and it seems the above covers all of the necessary changes.
