Slider without blog posts

Hi, is it possible to use the slider but not have the posts active?
I don’t plan on using the blog posts, and will just have a number of pages…
…But I would like to use the slider on the homepage still.

Perhaps you can create posts, set featured images, so the slider can use them, but not actually publish the posts, keeping them as drafts? But I suspect the slider wouldn’t work with them like that?

Any way to achieve this please?

Hi @effzeroh,

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

You can display the pages in the slider instead of posts by using the solution posted in the following reply.

If you want to display posts in draft status in the slider then you can do so by using the attached Sparkling child theme that contains some custom code.

Best Regards,
