    Hi,

    I have a slide show on my home page and I’d like to add some text to the page below the slide show. Is this possible? It’s a static page as my posts appear on another page.

    Thanks

    Katy

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hi Katy,

    You can add content to the slideshow page directly and it will display bellow your slider on the homepage.

    Thank you,

    Rebecca

    Hi Rebecca,

    That’s what I thought and I have some text in the page when I go to edit it, but when I look at the page I can’t see the text. Do you know why that might be?

    Hi Katy,

    Have you selected the option to display the Slideshow Page Content under Appearance > Theme Options > Page Options?

    Let me know if this doesn’t work.

    Thanks,

    Rebecca

    Thanks Rebecca,

    This has worked thank you. But I have now inserted an into the text I wanted to show below the slide show and that image has joined the photos in the slide show when I don’t want it to. Is it possible to have an image in the text that doesn’t appear in the slide show?

    Hi Katy,

    You would need to simply copy the image into your content area rather than uploading it to the page through the media uploader. You may need to re-do the slideshow page in order to remove the image from the slideshow now.

    Thanks,

    Rebecca

    oh that’s a pain. I’ll have to do that then.

    I’d aso like to change to font color of the title on the page (transform your health. I’ve tried a range of css variations but can’t get it to change. Should it be:

    .title { color: #D6D605; }

    Hi Rebecca,

    I managed to delete it from the slide show by permanently deleting it from the media library – details in the theme instructions document.

    That was a relief!

    That’s great! :) I’ll keep that in mind for future reference.

    I also remembered that if you upload the image to your library from the media library tab and then select it to add to your page it will not be added to your slideshow. Sorry, it’s been a long day. :)

    You can change the color of the title on the homepage only with the following CSS:

    .home h1 {
        color: #D6D605;
    }

    Thanks!

    Rebecca
