Set slider images separate from post images?

Is there a way to do what I describe in my title above?

Basically, I’m wanting to set 3 or 4 images for the slider that having nothing to do with any posts. OR, is there a way to create a ‘post’ that will be used in the slider but tell it not to show in the index on the home page?

Trying to build this site and have no coding skills. In addition to my question above about the slider images, here are other things I’m trying to do / figure out:

  • Turn off all text on slider images. I saw in this forum some CSS code to drop the ‘category’ but nothing about killing all the text (Ideally, I want to do my question above - slider images separate from those used in posts. I’m wondering if it’s just not possible because this free template is only designed this way.

  • Move the tag line sit where I want on my logo. Also change the font / color of tag line.

Maybe this is all done simply by editing the code in WP, in which case I just need to have someone do it. Thanks for letting me know if that is the case.

Hi @swinn,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

You can try achieving this by developing code referring the following solutions.

To hide all text just add the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Activello Options -> Other -> Custom CSS

div.flex-caption {
    display: none;
}
– Move the tag line sit where I want on my logo. Also change the font / color of tag line.

Sorry but i am not sure what you are trying to achieve so could you please describe it a bit more in detail?

If you make changes in the WordPress files then you have to make these changes again after WordPress updation as changes made in the WordPress files get lost on WordPress updation so it’s highly not recommended to do this and instead try to achieve this by developing child theme.

If you are not a developer then you can consider hiring a developer to develop it for you. You can hire a developer from any freelance site. We recommend the developer https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~011652ffec8865c6d5
