1. thank you so much for the in-detail explanation. Hope to read more tutorials from you.. Once again thumbs up for your commitment in writing and explaining these in detail. This way it helps to save a lot of time too..

      Thank you!! We are happy to help out! We have some more tutorials coming up so stay tuned! 🙂

  2. i’ve set up my slider but the images appear left justified. no matter how i size the images they appear off center. how can i fix this?

    1. Restored316 says:

      Hi Melissa,

      Looks like the images you’ve uploaded aren’t quite big enough to fit the space. Try uploading them at 1050px wide to fit the entire slider. If you still need help feel free to submit a support ticket!

  3. How do I slow the images down? They are moving too fast.

  4. Love this tutorial! I like the idea of adding category for the Slider and selecting which posts to feature that way. Question – is there a way to exclude this category from showing on my home page’s Category list? It’s more for internal use, so if someone is searching by category, I wouldn’t want them to see that category listed.

  5. Hello!
    Is it possible to create clickable links to send people to pages that are NOT on your wordpress site? For example, my web store is under a different domain, but I want a slider image as a sort of “ad” for my store- and when people click, be taken to the store. Is this possible?

      Hi Allison,

      You CAN do this, but the Genesis Responsive Slider isn’t the best option to do it. I would suggest the Soliloquy Lite plugin 😉

  6. I have the Tasteful theme.
    The Genesis slider works by itself, but I am unable to click either the arrows or the little
    circles to advance the slides.
    Any suggestions?

      Hi Mark,

      It’s really hard to say without taking a closer peek. It sounds like it could be a plugin conflict though so you may rule that out. If you still can’t figure it out, come on over and submit a support ticket.

  7. Hi,

    I’m using the foodie pro theme and I’ve added the genesis responsive slider to my sidebar and have found there is a big gap underneath – I don’t know if this is to do with displaying post content or excerpts (although no writing is coming up)
    I wanted to simply have the slider, no other content – but can’t get this gap to go away!
    (Also my website is still under construction therefore can’t be viewed!)


    1. Lauren Dierschke says:

      Hi Joanne! We appreciate you reaching out, however Foodie Pro isn’t one of our themes. Shay Bocks (https://shaybocks.com/) actually designed and created that theme, so I would suggest checking out her support resources! 🙂

  8. Hello! This is really great information! Thanks for sharing it with us. I have a quick question…I would like to use pages for my Genesis Responsive slider, and I am wondering how I set up the category to do that. You did a wonderful job explaining how to do it if you want to use posts for the slider, but I am unsure how to proceed with posts. Any help you can provide would be really appreciated. Thanks! Serena

    1. Lauren Dierschke says:

      Hi Serena!

      You can set the Genesis Responsive Slider to use pages instead of posts in the Slider Settings. You’d just include or exclude whatever pages you prefer!

    Hi! Hopefully this is a super quick question! I’ve followed your excellent advice and my slider post has disappeared from my blog page (yay) but it’s still showing in the “latest from the blog” and in “featured articles”. Do you I need to post the category id somewhere as well? I’m using the darling theme.

    Thanks so much!

      Hi Amy,

      We would need to see a link to your site to figured this one out. You might go ahead and submit a support ticket if you haven’t already.

  10. Great tut Courtney, thanks…

  11. Thanks for this tutorial, Courtney! I don\’t have one of your gorgeous designs, but it helped me set up my slider on my homepage anyway!! Thanks so much!

    1. Lauren Dierschke says:

      Oh yay!! Thank you Chelsea! I’m so glad that this was helpful for you! Please don’t ever hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!!

  12. Hey! Lovely tut! Is there any way to have many pages directed to a single link? I want 2-3 images, all directing to my shop. Would that be possible?

    1. Lani Padilla says:

      What slider are you using? This can be done with the Soliloquy Lite slider. It allows you to upload images independently and then customize the link to them. Hope that helps!

      1. I’m using the genesis responsive slider. Is Soliloquy a good plug in to use for this, specially with genesis?

        1. lanipadilla says:

          Both of these slider plugins are fantastic. The Genesis Responsive Slider pulls the featured image from posts or pages, depending on how you have the settings setup. The Soliloquy slider allows you to upload images and links independently of the posts and pages. Hope that helps!

  13. Hey! I am having trouble displaying content or an excerpt below the images in the slider. The words are on top of the image rather than at the bottom. I checked to make sure it was set to bottom/left and even tried to set it to top/right to see if it would reset itself. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    1. Restored316 says:

      Hi Lauren,

      I just took a peek at your site and I’m seeing things correctly on my end. If you’re still having trouble though, you might want to go ahead and submit a ticket so we can look at the issue closer for you.

  14. Such great information! Thank you. Question: I am purchasing one of your templates (Adorn), but find that I want to set different images than the featured image for each of my posts for when it appears in the slider. My feature images are all square images, and the slider for adorn isn’t exactly square…it’s more rectangular, which means the images (and subsequent text on the images) will crop. Is there a way I can select a different image for each post I want to appear in the slider? Or make the slider square? Thank you so much!!

    1. lanipadilla says:

      Hi Jen,
      Because of the layout of the Adorn theme, changing the slider size itself would throw off the design. You can, however, use the Soliloquy Slider for this space where you can upload completely separate images and have them link to the posts. See this article for more information: https://docs.restored316.com/article/150-adorn-slider.
      Hope this helps!
