I would like my client to be able to change the home slider themselves to exhibit particular pages and the easiest way (I think) is to create extra categories for just the slider where they can update text and images.
Question is, however, how to override (kill or replace) slides' links to those categories and add custom urls.
Reason being is that I want to advertise particular pages and categories other than those from where images and descriptions are grabbed.
If there's an easier way to, say, grab descriptions (can be just a one line of text, no need to be a header and an excerpt) and associated images from a designated page, cool too (how to make it show pages rather than categories you answered in another thread). Still need to be able to add custom urls though.
I'm mainly concerned about messing up associated codes so would like to avoid replacing current slider with a separate wordpress plugin.
Thank you heaps!
