In this tutorial, i’ll show you the easiest way to replace the default background image in the new Minimum Pro child theme with a slideshow.
Update: Here’s another way to replace the after header background image on the front page of Minimum Pro with a slide show
Rather than modify PHP & CSS code, you can simply hook in a new responsive slider.
Here’s a few code snippets you can choose from depending on which slider plugin you want to use:
Please copy the PHP code from the view raw link and paste it in your child themes functions.php file.
Easing Slider – Free Version
Easing Slider – Pro Version
Soliloquy – Free Version
If you want the images to display before your tagline, simply paste the PHP before the code for your tagline in the functions file. Otherwise paste it after the tagline code if you want it to display below your tagline.
You can also use a third parameter for positioning priority when hooking in different functions using the same hook.
