More specifically how do I get "X" amount of "sticky" posts to all become one big post that rotates and takes up less space on the web page?

If you need more information feel free to let me know.

The website is www.crossfitblueprint.com and I am trying to get the top three posts that are all sticky to become one post that rotates....

Thanks,

J

There is nothing in Atahualpa that will address this. I suggest yu do a google search and see if you can find a plugin that will do this for you.

The Smooth Slider plugin does this very nicely. It works for text-only posts or posts with images. It'll take the first image in the post and turn it into a thumbnail and show it along with some text. I have it running at aghca.org.

How did you get Smooth Slider to show up on the front page alone. I can't seem to figure out where to put the Smooth Slider php tag in the Atahualpa theme...

In theme options, style and configure center column, I put this:

Code:
<?php
if (is_home() AND function_exists( 'get_smooth_slider' ) ) {
     get_smooth_slider(); } ?>

Hey Correen,

Where did you paste the code at? My website is: www.happydogcafe.net and I seem not to able to display the smooth slider on my page.

I placed the code in my index.php editor file but it still is not working. Any suggestions? By the way, your site looks great!

Brian... This forum only relates to the Atahualpa theme. What Correen and paulaw were talking about relates to the theme options within Atahualpa.
