    Hey Kriesi,

    Absolutely love the theme. I’m wondering about posting and the accordion slider on the home page, I want to add posts that don’t automatically add an image to the slider. Is this possible? Currently, every time I post something it puts it in the slider even without a picture. I have one more question but I’ll post another thread to keep the search accurate.





    you can exclude categories from your slider by going in your index.php file.

    Here you’ll find

    $additional_loop = new WP_Query("cat="

    change this to

    $additional_loop = new WP_Query("cat=-YOURCATEGORYNUMBER"

    Let’s say you create a category “noslider” you could go in your dashboard to Categories, here you can copy the link to your category, mine for example “Uncategorized” is linked as /wordpress/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?action=edit&taxonomy=category&tag_ID=1&post_type=post. By this I know the ID is 1. So to exclude this category I would do this:

    $additional_loop = new WP_Query("cat=-1"

    I hope this helps :)


    Okay but I don’t want to exclude posts by category. I want all my categories to the have the option to have it’s posts in the slider. I just want to manually choose when I publish a post whether or not it is in the slider. Is that possible?



    it’s not possible at the moment. I’d suggest to create a “slider” category and to assign all posts to this category which should display in the accordion slider. You need to select the slider category with the option panel (Newscast Options > Mainpage Options )
