    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.

    Thanks @deevee007 for the response. That’s actually exactly what I did.
