p.1 #1 · Wordpress help?


I've been wracking my brain for a few days now trying to figure out how to have a static front page that displays a full width slide show, my logo above it, and below it I'd like to have the categories listed. I don't think it should be that hard, I've tried a few plugins and everything, but it's not working. I'm using the photocrati theme. I wish the theme let you put widgets in the header but it doesn't.

Just to make sure I understand what you're after, you mean something like this?

I had to take a theme (Carbonize) and customize it (re-write the page layout) so that it didn't display the blog's sidebar. Now, every static page on my WP install shows as full width, but the Blog (only) shows the side bar menu with previous blog entries, etc.

It was some work but since I'm HTML and CSS savvy, I got it working in a day or so. You might want to find or pay someone to develop a theme that is built that way from the start.

Do you have ProPhoto? If so, there's some more in depth instructions here: http://www.prophotoblogs.com/support/static-homepage/

This.

Or you can make your own custom front page as a custom template. But that can get involved.
