Move slider to bottom

  • jcs


    Hi – I’m loving this theme. Thank you for your hard work in creating it.

    I would like to move the slider to below the page content on the main index page – any ideas how I would do this?

    Many thanks

    Currently, you would have to copy the entire code for the slider, then hide the current slider using CSS, then create a new function that will display the slider inside the functions.php file in your child theme, then hook that new function to one of the action hooks available with the theme.



    O gosh. That’s way over my head unfortunately!!

    Is there any possibility this functionality may be built in to a future release as I really wouldn’t know how to do it :s

    Nope, I don’t think so I’ll do that. I really don’t want to clutter the theme’s Options page with options that not many people will use.




    I’m also interested by moving the slider at bottom. As it’s for a Welcom page, it’s quite interesting to have first a static text you can entirely control, and then the slider showing your articles.

    Would you have some additionnal details about the technical steps to follow for that (naming the files, the classes in css, etc…)?

    This theme is quite nice and clean, this is the only point worrying me, I’d be quite glad to fix it 😉

    Hurm…that makes sense..

    I’ll consider this.



    I think a good solution would be to setup a single page and use that as the home page, which i am in the process of doing, then add the slider function wherever you would like.

    I dont know what how to insert the slider function so maybe Syahir could answer that?




    Great theme!

    I just wanted to chime in and say that I’d love the option to put the slider on the bottom. If you add this functionality to an update that would be great, or if you provided more details on how to do it that would work as well.

    Also, on your site, you mention $20/hr for customizations of this theme. If you opt out of making this an option, that is definitely something I’d pay for.

    My reasons are very similar to Stedud. Basically, my website provides information to potential clients about my freelance writing and editing services. I have a blog as part of the site–to showcase my writing, and give people something else to look at and a reason to come back–but the blog is not the main purpose of the site.

    Another solution that would work for me would be to move the slider from the home page and have it only exist on the blog page.

    Thanks a bunch for the theme. I’m in the process of customizing it to use for my website.

    Yes, I will include an option to move the slider to the bottom in the next update.



    Awesome! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the fact that you’re so on top of things, especially given the fact that your theme is free as well.
