Ego WordPress Theme – Homepage Slider Setup


The first thing you’ll notice in the demos of our one-page Ego WordPress Theme is the full screen slider. In this post we’ll show you everything you need to know about setting up the homepage slider in Ego, which is very different from how the sliders work in our other WordPress themes. The two videos below are easy to follow and clearly explain how to create your slider and how to add captions to your slides.

Keep in mind that the steps and options mentioned in these videos are for the full screen homepage slider and not for the shortcode slider.

Creating Your Slider and Adding Slides

Points to note
  • Upload one image per “Homepage Slides” post.
  • Each image you want to use in the slider must be set as the featured image of that slide post.
  • You need to use at least 2 slides for the slider to function.

Adding Captions

Points to note
  • Captions are added directly in the editor.

You can find all the different types of captions you can use with the homepage slider in Ego in the documentation under Adding Slider Captions.
