Our latest template Business Meeting has versions for Joomla 2.5 and WordPress! The main new functionality we have added to this design is a header with sliding images in it. Below I will explain in details how you can manage the slider for the WordPress and the Joomla template.
In WordPress, once you install the theme, a new menu will appear on your admin page named Business Meeting. On this page, you can configure whether you want to enable the slider or show a single image and how many slides to be shown if slide show is enabled. The images for the slide show should be 950x 290px and should be uploaded in the “images” folder of your theme directory with names image1.jpg, image2.jpg etc.
Additionally, in WordPress you can have a custom image in the header for each post or page you publish. This is achieved by using the standard WordPress functionality featured image. Our theme slider is configured to display such a featured image instead of the slider. If no image is featured the theme will show your default slider settings for the post.
The configuration of the slider for the Joomla 2.5 template is similar. In the Template Manager you can set the same options: if the slider functionality of the header will be enabled or disabled, and if enabled how many slides will be rotated.
In Joomla, however, you cannot have custom image for different pages, as this is possible for WordPress only. What the template offers instead is to choose whether the header will be visible for all the pages or only for the home page. If you decide to use the slider only on your front page, the design will adjust accordingly, so your other articles will still look great!
