Slider for pages

Hi there,

I’m only using pages (not posts) in my website but i want the slider on the homepage with links to the pages. Hardcoded is also possible if needed, i don’t have many pages.

Can you please help me with this?


Hi @leduc,

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

You can achieve this by using the attached child theme of Sparkling theme that contains some custom code.

Unlike posts the pages don’t have category so you have to add ‘slider_page’ custom fields to the pages that you want to display in the slider as shown in the attached screenshot.

Best Regards,

Hi @movin,
I am new in web design and i have yet decided to use sparkling theme for my website. I read your comment above and implemented my website but didn’t get a result. Could you please explain how i should set up the documents in folder? I guess i am doing wrong this section.

Thank you and best regards.

Hi @mglc,

You can install the Sparkling theme on your site as described on the following page.

Best Regards,

I just wanted to say thank you for providing the functionality in this childtheme.

Your instructions are clear, and the screenshots made it very easy to replicate your work.

Thank you!

You are most welcome here :slight_smile:

Hi there,
is it possible that the featured image is only to be shwon in the slider on the startpage but not on the page where it is located and linked to?
I would like to hide the featured image on the page because the right size for the slider ist not the right size for the featured image, it is displayed there very creepy.

Could you help me?


@rainbowcountry To help us keep support thread separates could you please create your own thread for your question here instead of replying on others thread as it makes the thread messy and hard to read.

If you want to you can also add reference of this thread in your newly created thread.

We would be more than happy to help you on your new thread.

it seems to be easy…but doesn’t work…

  • i made child theme (by ‘childify me’ plugin)
    -add new site (and try to add custom field to existing site)
  • choose featured image
  • make custom field as your sample
  • publish the site of course :wink:

…and nothing happened (featured image appears on the top of site - but not on the homepage slider)

i have to ask…maybe some of the fields of the list…are rigt to use? If yes - I still don’t know how values use.

@ifrijja As requested above could you please create separate topic here
