Replace the Homepage Banner with a Slider

You might want to add a slider in place of your homepage header. In that case, all you have to do is:

  1. Place a slider widget as the first widget in the Homepage” widget area, which should appear just under the header on your page.
  2. Edit your homepage and change the page template in the “Page Attributes” box to the “Homepage Template: Minimal” template. This will remove the header from your homepage and make your slider widget appear as the new header for the page.
