Home Page Slider Setup | Bel Canto

Follow

In place of the Hero Header on the static Home Page, you can choose to use a Full Width or Boxed slider widget instead.

Make sure your Home Page Hero Area > Hero Area Layout is set to the "Full Width Slider Widget" option. See this tutorial for more details.

* For a Post/Page slider, we recommend using the Recommended Plugin Genesis Responsive Slider. See this site for details on how to set up a slider. Recommended size is 1920px wide by 600px tall. (You may need to Regenerate Thumbnails to create the correct size images for your slider).

** For a general slider, we recommend using the Recommended Plugin Smart Slider 3. See this site for directions for Smart Slider 3.
