I would be great if we could flag a page as “featured” and have it appear in the homepage slider!
Right now, we need to number our pages and then select the page numbers that we want to be displayed BUT I have a website with 40+ pages and:
1. I don’t want to number them all, I can use the new wordpress menu system instead.
2. IF I DO number them, it would be like this (note the hierarchy):
and so on.. So, there are many pages called “0” because they are SUBpages. This allows me to manage my pages more efficiently and not have to re-order EVERYTHING if i want to add a page anywhere on the site.
In other words, I can’t tell my slider to display page “1”.. and that’s unfortunate… 🙂
Well, the slider is really meant to display posts, not pages. Pages do have a hierarchy, whereas only posts can be assigned to a category. Are you talking about WordPress pages or Worpress posts?(To understand the difference, see this this tutorial.) It seems as if you are asking for a hybrid between the two?
You can assign posts to a category such as “slider” or “featured” and then make only those posts show up in the slider, however.
I know i can start a “featured” category and assign posts to it, what i meant was – like you said – a hybrid solution. either give the theme itself, or a dedicated plugin, the ability to select specific pages to appear in the slider using a different parameter than page number.. page number simply doesn’t cut it, it would be nice to have a better tool to identify which pages to display in the slider.
in other words, yes – the slider is MEANT for posts, it would be nice though if it could be converted to feature PAGES instead 😉
