It’s no secret that we’re not huge fans of sliders, which is why we don’t typically add them to our themes. There are numerous documented pitfalls, but we’re not here to limit what you can do.
In fact, we try to make our themes as easy to work with as possible, and that includes extending them. We enjoy seeing people customize our work and some of our favorite sites are the ones people have made their own.
We receive regular support requests from customers who want to replace the hero image in Promenade with a slider. Our typical response is that it is possible, but requires customization via a child theme or functionality plugin.
However, we understand not everyone is comfortable jumping into code.
With that in mind, we recently added a couple of custom plugins to our support resources to provide simple integration with existing slider plugins.
Have fun and feel free to drop us a line to let us know if there are any popular plugins you would like to see us support.
