If you would prefer to use a 3rd party slider plugin for your homepage slider you can do this very easily:
- Install the slider plugin of your choice and create a slider. You will need to copy the shortcode of this slider.
- Navigate to Appearance > Customize > Slider and select “Slider Plugin” from the Slider dropdown.
- Paste the shortcode of the slider that you created into the Slider Shortcode field.
Some popular slider plugins are:
Displaying The Slider on All Pages and Posts
The Premium version of Tropicana has “Display the slider on all pages” and “Display the slider on the blog posts” settings which will allow you to display the homepage slider on all of your pages or all of your posts respectively. If you’d prefer to set individual sliders for your pages you can do that as well.
