Featured Posts Slider displays only Featured (category) Posts, with Featured Images attached to them
The way this slider works is that you don’t need to configure images into it separately. The integration is combined with your regular blogging activity.
You just need to assign the “featured” category and “featured image” to a standard post and slider will do the rest.
The slider will display custom size, pre-cut thumbnails of Featured posts along with post titles.
Slider hides in mobile view.
By default slider will hold latest 12 featured posts. (number can be changed in template file.)
- Create a standard Post
- assign “featured” category
- add featured image
- hit publish.
Note: to avoid duplicating content with slider and front-page excerpts, front -page posts excludes “featured” category posts. (because they are already displayed by the slider)
