This tutorial provides the code which enables you to replace the site header image with a slide show on the front page. The slideshow displays full width of screen and is fully mobile responsive.
Watch the following demo video to see the slider in action:
The slider enables you to add any number of images to your WordPress Media Library or host them externally and paste the URL’s for each image in a comma separated list.
