Slider Help For Stupid People?

  • Austin2010a


    Is there any Slider help for stupid people like me? I have read nearly everything I can find on the Slider Image thingy. I have even read the Wikki about it. I just don’t understand how this works. Is there someone who can tell me how to do it please? This is what I THINK I know so far. 1. I think I need to create a new page . Then I think I am supposed to somehow post to that page. I think I can do that in the admin panel. Then I think I am supposed to link to that page in the General Options of the site. Is that correct? If so, what do I do after that to get it to actually work?

    Any POSTS that you create will automatically go into the slider if you haven’t adjusted any of the settings. Don’t confuse pages with posts; they are different in WordPress.

    If you want to insert specific pages (rather than posts) into the slider, you can via the slider options.



    II have begun using the slider on my web site,, but I am having trouble figuring out the right size for the feature image width and height for picture displays. The slider is set at 220 px high and the box is checked for the width of the theme. What size should the feature image size be so it will fit properly on the slider pane window?



    Kenneth John Odle,

    Thank you soooooooooo much! That was awesome help you gave me. The problem was I didn’t understand that a post and a page were different or that the slide used the post to create the slider images. I had a real Ah Ha moment reading your reply. Thank you very much. It works now! 🙂




    Can you please help me again? I created two posts and they worked perfectly. I have an image that shows with the text excerpt and it looks fantastic. I created a 3rd post and the image does not show in the slider. It shows when you click the view full post button, but not in the slider. About the images: They are all the exact same image only in different colors. Nothing changed about any of the images.. just color and image name example (imageb.png, imagec.png, imaged.png). I checked the image code and the code on each page is exactly the same as well. I just can’t figure out why the image would show perfectly on the first two sliders and on the third one it is gone. Can you please help?
