Adding sliders

Homepage sliders can give a professional look to you website.

Sliders are usually found at the top of the homepage, and they come in various sizes. They use a slideshow style format.

One important point to remember is that your images are the correct size  for the slider so they are not blurry.

One easy slider to use is Soliloquy Lite

To add Slider:

From the Dashboard click Plugins>Add New

In the search box type Soliloquy Lite

Install now and activate Рthe Soliloquy will appear in your Dashboard  links

Click on the link Add new Soliloquy slider to begin building your slider

Add a title for slider, this will not appear on the slider itself but used by you to distinguish your slider is you choose to install more than one.

Add images to slider – the default dimensions for Soliloquy lite slider is 960 x 300 pixels.

Upload images they will appear at the bottom ready to publish. Click publish which gets your slider ready for your website.

When you click Publish, the shortcode will pop up ie: [soliloquy id=”77″]

Where ever you want the slider to appear (posts, pages, widgets, header etc ) just type in the shortcode.

And your slider is live.
