    Hello guys,
    Am developing a free WordPress theme, and i want to make an already existing responsive image slider plugin a part of the theme such that when the theme is installed and activated, the slider plugin is automatically activated as well.

    I don’t want to develop an image slider from scratch for two reasons

    1. very good ones already exists

    2. since its a free theme, i may not have all the time to provide world class support, so i’d prefer to use something made and regularly update by someone else


    ask people to install it themselves. put it on readme file.

    i don’t know if it is possible to activate plugin when activating your theme.

    but i know you can call function when activating theme . check add_action or register_activation_hook etc.

    maybe call plugin’s function when activating theme?
