Creating a Slide Page

Creating a page with a slider on top takes two steps.

Step 1 – Add slide

Add a new slide by clicking add new under Slide in your admin area.

You need to enter a title, enter slide text, add the slide image in the featured image area, add the url for the button, and add the button text.

See screenshot of the slide edit area:


Step 2 – Create Page

Next, you need to create a new page and pick the Top Slider template page. You can place anything else you want on this page but the slider will show up automatically at the top of the page.

The most recent new slide will show first.

It will rotate all slides, so delete or save slides as drafts if you do not want to show them.


You can also create a slider page with a sidebar as well.  Just pick the other page template (Top Slider with Sidebar).

Create a Landing Page

You can also create landing pages like the slide template but with just a static image, content, and button.

1. Create a new page
2. Choose the Landing page or Landing page with sidebar page template
3. Go to the Landing page properties and fill out the information for title, sub title, button text, and button url.
4. That is it, add content to the page itself like usual.

Translation and Text Replacement

The theme is ready for translation, so you can easily translate it from English to whatever language you wish.

Rather the writeup how to do that here, here is a great article to do that using Poedit software:

You can use the .pot language template file that is in the themes language folder. Opening that in poedit, you can translate all the text and save it in your appropriate language code as the file name. Place it in the same folder and make sure your WordPress install is in the same language as well.

Text Replacement

There are also a few words in front end that you can change like button text and table headings for the shortcodes.

Go to the theme options page and you will see a section for word replacement:
