Adding a Device-Responsive Rotator to your Sherpa Site Home Page

Device-Reponsive means that this slider will scale down to fit whatever you are viewing it on, ipad, itouch, cell phone,etc.

It’s easy!

  1. Go to Plug-ins and activate Wp Rotator (1st) and Flex Slider for WP Rotator (2nd)
  2. Add images to your home page Rotator by selecting “Rotator Items” on the left nav > Add New.
  3. Go to Set Featured Image on the right and add your Rotator image there > Save as Featured Image.
  4. You can add a click through URL to those images by scrolling down to the Custom Fields section, selecting wp_rotator_url and adding your click-thru url.
  5. Add new Rotator Items for each image in your slider.
  6. Go to Appearance>Widgets. Drag the WP Rotator into your Home Top Widget.
  7. To change the settings (timing/size, etc) for your Rotator go to Settings>WP Rotator and edit.
    Unless you know what you’re doing, leave the “Post Query Vars” alone. 🙂

Note: If you change the image size in Settings > WP Rotator but want to use images that have already been uploaded, you’ll need to activate and use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin.

Voila!
