WP: 2.9.2
Atahualpa 3.4.6

This may be a stupid question as I'm new to WP and Atahualpa, but....

Can the Frontpage Slideshow plugin be used for just the header and NOT the page or post?

And, if so, how?

Thanks in advance,
Art

you can try this...

in the FPS settings page there's a section to grab some php code and insert it into a template. Take that code and try entering into the "Style and edit Header Area" ------> "Configure Header Area" of ATA.

Good idea. Let us know if you try this. I would love to see how it plays out.

It's definitely possible. I just did it today on my blog: http://www.anomalousmaterial.com/movies/

You need to create a widget area in the header. It will take you an hour or two to make things right but it's definitely not very hard.

You need to go to the atahualpa theme options and go Sidebar & Widgets > Add new widget area. There it is explained how to create new widget areas anywhere on your template. Once you have created the new widget area, copy paste the shortcode [FrontpageSlideshow] into the widget.

For the plugin to work, you need to create a new category and put the post you want in the slideshow in that category. Have a picture in each post that you want featured in the slideshow as the plugin automatically picks the first picture of the post automatically.

Finally, choose any transition but "fade" and in "about default link", select "if no link is specified, use the slide url". The custom forms in the edit post area do NOT work.

Tweak and test, tweak and test, it's not too hard.
