Store ID=69075
http://sportsfans.ae/

Hi
I am using a premium theme: http://demo.wpzoom.com/?theme=manifesto
This theme has a slider at the top half of the the homepage
However with Datafeedr it goes missing http://sportsfans.ae/
The slider is an important element for the site I am building
What I want to achieve is as seen in the attachment herewith.
Advice appreciated.
Cheers

Hi

You will have to configure your theme to show the slider at the top of a WordPress Page. It might require modifying your theme's page.php file.

As you can see, the slider does not appear on your other pages either: http://sportsfans.ae/about/

Agreed Eric it is solely a front page slider. I only want it on the front page .
The problem is when Datafeedr is activated the slider disappears from the front page.
When Datafeedr is deaxtivated the front page slider works...
Any ideas why this happens and how to fix?

Hi

This is because you have set Datafeedr to appear on your front page.

When Datafeedr is deactivated, your theme will show the default template file for the homepage.

But when Datafeedr is activated, your template loads the page.php template file for your homepage.

You need to configure your theme so that the slide appears in the page.php file. If you are not sure how to do that, I would ask the theme developer how you can show the slider on page.php rendered pages.

Have achieved what I want with the front page of the site.
But now the problem is that the slider appears also on the individual product posts or are they pages?
eg: http://sportsfans.ae/store/ac-milan/...3601048270594/
I would prefer that the slider only apears on the homepage and not everywhere as is the case now.
Any suggestions?
Cheers

Hi

You should wrap the slider code in a conditional like this:

PHP Code:
<?php if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] == '/') { ?>
    Slider code here
<?php ?>
You might have to play around with what appears between the single quotes after the "==" sign. It might be this:

PHP Code:
<?php if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] == '') { ?>
    Slider code here
<?php ?>
