This is part of our WordPress Church Site Basics course where we have walked you through some of the basic things to get your site up and running. This post is also part of our Church Plugins category where you will find good info on some of the plugins that we use the most. They may not all be ‘church plugins’ but again, just like themes, I’ve found that most plugins for churches that are designed just for churches are confusing and just not top notch. Not really applicable to a content slider, but our church plugins cat as well as the stuff I use page will get you off on the right foot!
This slider is ideal for getting your news out and your point across. It is crazy customizable, uses shortcodes to insert anywhere, and supports layers (hence the name) so you can layer images one on top of the other for neat effects and slide ins). One of the reasons I use this theme so much is because every Themewave theme (which I use on a regular!) comes with a free liscence (a $15 value) and you can simply choose a slider as a header style and insert it automatically with not shortcode. Pretty neat and tidy stiff if you ask me. Watch the Video and if you would like the plugin you can grab it HERE.
This church plugin helps you create an awesome slideshow on your homepage.
