Getting Started

1. Download the theme and activate it from wordpress.

2. Go into Appearance – Menus and Create a New menu and add 7 Pages or Categories to it.

3. A new dropdown will appear on the left called ‘Sliding Navigation’  - Select your new menu here.

4. To change the images, change them in photoshop. The need to be 320×200 in size or it won’t work. You can download the original photo shop file from the theme homepage.  The titles in the images are changed by editing the image in photoshop.  Try to make the filesize small – in photoshop you do this by ‘save for web’ and choose medium or low quality – not high.

5. Go to a post that is in your main menu and select ‘upload image’ then select the image you want to upload and select  ’use as featured image’.

6. If you want to customise the theme, make sure you use a child theme rather than directly change the sliding door theme – there’s great instructions here:  http://op111.net/53/

    I have the same problem as Carl.
    I’m using the categories as my menu.
    Please help

    I am having the same problem following the instructions. I created 7 PAGES, but they don’t work. Are we supposed to create 7 BLANK PAGE POSTS and then upload the pictures as ‘featured image’? How do we align the image?

    Clearer instructions, please.

    Read the FAQ, you need to set up the menus in the menu section of WordPress.

    I don’t know what bluevoda editor is?

    There is a discussion on the support site about this, it doesn’t work assigning a menu to a category because there is no way to specify what image to use for a category. The only way to make a sliding door menu point to a category, is to make a page, put the image as the featured image for that page, and then use the page links to plug-in to link that page to the category that you want. It’s a bit of a workaround, you can read more about it at the support site.

    I also tried making 7 blank POST pages and then uploaded 1 image per page making it the ‘featured image’ as instructed. Still not working. Can you help please? We need precise instructions that show us what to do step-by-step.

  10. Mike Holt says:

    Where do we find the FAQ? I downloaded the Slider.zip file, but every time I try to activate the plugin I get a message saying the file has a corrupt header. Could this be the cause of the problem?

    It really would help to have much more precise step-by-step instructions from the beginning to end.

    Ok, got it figured out now after seeing the tutorial at http://mac-host.com/support/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1285&sid=0867efb31cb9be5ad6c1c06c014618cb.

    I deleted the pictures I originally uploaded into the POST pages and then clicked on the little picture upload icon at the top of the page. Then set the image to ‘featured’ in the menu.

    The problem I was having before was that I was clicking on the link at the bottom right of the POST edit page. Duh!

    Cheers
    Mike

    I too do not understand how to make the picture just magically appear. What I am I missing?

    Working with this excellent theme for a friends site. No real problem – except – “You can download the original photo shop file from the theme homepage.” I can’t find the link!! Any suggestions?
    Thanks
