    Hi,

    I would like to hardcode the Main slideshow on the homepage as I need the images to link to categories instead of a particular post. I do not want the slideshow to change when people post etc so it will be fixed. What do I need to do?

    Thanks.

    Hey Salehm308,

    The most simple way to do this would be copy the source of the slideshow from your site. This will be everything inside (and including these)

    <!-- FEATURED POST AREA ################################################### -->
    <div id="feature_wrap">
    <!-- ###################################################################### -->

    <!-- ###################################################################### -->
    </div><!-- end featuredwrap -->
    <!-- ###################################################################### -->

    Now paste that into your index.php after line 70 where it says end slideshow. Now you can modify the slideshow just like you would an html page.

    To get rid of the auto generated slideshow, select “Don’t Display Slideshow” in the Mainpage Options of the Newscast admin.

    Its a bit rough around the edges but its makes the theme do the heavy lifting and create the slideshow for you.
