The customer logos in the Customers Are the Heart of Our Business section of the home page is a slider with multiple images displayed using the Home Featured 3 widget area. These are the instructions on how to configure your slider like our theme demo.
Note: This uses a premium plugin called Soliloquy. A license for this is already included in your theme at purchase. You do not need to purchase a license unless you want direct support from the plugin developer. Thomas, the developer, is really good with support so we encourage buyers who have advanced needs to consider purchasing a their own license so they can receive direct support. If you do not have advanced needs which would require support, you are good to go with our included license.
First ensure you have installed and activated the premium Soliloquy plugin per the Installing Included Plugins theme instruction. The Soliloquy license key should be set automatically by the theme. Then you will need to activate the Carousel Addon. To do so:
- Go to Soliloquy –> Settings
- Click on the Addons Tab
- If necessary click on the Refresh Addons button
- Click the Install Addon button for the Carousel addon
Next create your slider by following these steps:
Create any number of images and size them to 200px wide x 100px high. (For best results size your images to these exact dimensions before you upload them.)
Go to Soliloquy –> Add New
Give your slide set a name of Partners.
Select the Config tab and configure your slider with the settings in this screenshot:
On the Mobile tab:
- Create Mobile Slider Images? (unchecked)
- Show Captions on Mobile? (unchecked)
- Enable Slider Carousel? (Checked)
Here are the settings for the Carousel tab in our theme demo:
- Slider Title = Partners
- Slider Slug = partners
- Click Select Images
- Import files from your computer as you would normally do in WordPress
Our sliders are are not using any text so you do not have to worry about any of the meta data for each image.
Please Note: If image status is set to Draft instead of Published in the metadata then your image will not display in your slider. Draft images are displayed in the Images tab with a yellow border. Published images have a green border. You can change the status between Draft and Published by clicking on the blue “i” icon in the upper left corner of each image. Use the Status drop down to change the status. Remember to click the Save Metadata button to lock in your change. See the Soliloquy online documentation for more information.
Finally go to Appearance –> Widgets and drag a Soliloquy widget to the Slider widget area. If you have created more than one slider be sure to select the correct slider from the drop down in the widget.
