AnythingSlider for WordPress Plugin

  • # November 21, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    This is my first discussion in this forum. I’m working towards building web development skills and am currently taking Chris’s course “WordPress 3: Creating and Editing Custom Themes” on lynda.com.

    I’m working on a project in WordPress using a child theme for TwentyEleven that calls for a slider in the header. After installing the AnythingSlider plugin and creating a few slides, I added the following short code to the header.

    themes/schulman-sat-child/header.php

    < ?php if(is_home() || is_front_page()){
    echo do_shortcode( “[anything_slides width=1000 height=389 navFormat=true delay=3000 resume=15000 animation=750 order=ASC orderby=ID theme=minimalist-round]” );
    }
    ?>

    And here is the result:

    I’ve been trying to find detailed documentation for the plugin but haven’t found anything with clear instructions. A lot of the help on git-hub is over my head.

    This is the goal for how the slideshow should look:

    I’d appreciate any help.

    How can I add text to the right of the slider image?

    The AnythingSlider looks fine in Firefox and Chrome, but the round buttons on the bottom right are square in IE 8.

    See development page

    Any ideas?
