    Is there any way to include pages in the home page slider? Not just blogs and or blog specific categories?

    If not what about adding a custom link to a different page for a slider image? Any clues?

    Hey,

    You can change the homepage slider to use pages by modifying the WP_Query in index.php. Open it up and find this code:

    $additional_loop = new WP_Query("cat=".$k_option['mainpage']['feature_cats_final']."&posts_per_page=".$k_option['mainpage']['feature_count']);

    Change it to:

    $args = array(
    'post_type'=>'page',
    'post__in' => array('595', '33', '44')
    );

    $additional_loop = new WP_Query($args);

    This would load pages with the ID’s of 595, 33 and 44. This would require manual intervention (i.e. editing the file) every time you wanted to change the pages / the page order. The original theme options would continue to exist but have no effect on the slider.

    Hi , tired the below code which should display 6 pages at the front but it displays only 3 (all of the 6 are post IDs of the pages I am trying to display at the mainpage)

    $args = array(

    ‘post_type’=>’page’,

    ‘post__in’ => array(’583′, ’585′, ’66′, ’63′, ’965′));

    $additional_loop = new WP_Query($args);

    Any ideas ???

    Maybe you’ve limited the number of maximum posts per page to 3 – check your reading settings under Settings > Reading. You can also check the mainpage post settings under Newscast options > Mainpage Options.

    @Dude , yeh you are right , did had the maximum posts per page at Reading set to 3 ,

    could you suggest a work around where I can still have 3 posts at the front while showing more number of pages in the slidebar.

    It can be dome if we use category selection, but how to do using the pages ???
