I have a static site I need to convert in to a WordPress theme which includes an editable slideshow. I’m not familiar with any plugin that has this kind of slideshow layout, so I thought maybe I could write something on my own, but not sure if this would work. Here is the link to the page with the slideshow http://www.weblinxinc.com/beta/carbit/.
Would I be able to create a custom post type and create 2 custom fields, one for the text in the slideshow and one for the button with text below the slideshow? Or is there a better way to go about it?
Create a custom post type called ‘Slides’ or whatever, then create a custom image field for each custom post type. Then you can use < ?php the_field('whateveryoucallit') ?> to grab each slide image. You can also limit the amount of slides that can be added so you wont have to change much of the slider code you already have.
