    Hello,

    1) I don't see the child of Chords.
    It would be easier for me to just change the content.
    If this is not possible, how to create or on which site to create a slide for the homepage?

    2) Your slider only works with external videos.
    How is it possible to integrate your own slide made with an extension?  Like: meta slider or transition slider

    Thank you very much
    Sincerely
    Jil

    Hi there,

    You can use any slider you want. Just open template-frontpage.php and replace

    <?php $slides = ci_theme_get_slides( false, get_queried_object_id() ); ?>
    <?php if( $slides->have_posts() ): ?>
    <div id="home-slider" class="flexslider loading">
    <ul class="slides">
    <?php while( $slides->have_posts() ): $slides->the_post(); ?>
    <?php
    $url       = esc_url( get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'ci_cpt_slider_url', true ) );
    $video_url = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'ci_cpt_slider_video_url', true );
    ?>
    <li style="background-image: url('<?php echo esc_url( ci_get_featured_image_src( 'ci_slider' ) ); ?>');">
    <?php if ( empty( $video_url ) ) : ?>
    <div class="slide-content">
    <h3 class="slide-title"><?php the_title(); ?></h3>
    <p class="slide-subtitle"><?php echo get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'ci_cpt_slider_text', true ); ?></p>
    <?php if( !empty( $url ) ): ?>
    <a class="btn btn-lg" href="<?php echo $url; ?>"><?php ci_e_setting( 'read_more_text' ); ?></a>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </div>
    <?php else : ?>
    <div class="slide-video-wrap">
    <?php echo wp_oembed_get( $video_url, array( 'height' => 440 ) ); ?>
    </div>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </li>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
    </ul>
    </div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    With your slider code as suggested by its developers. 

    If you decide to proceed with this modification I would suggest you create a child theme, copy over the files you are editing and make the modifications there. This will allow your changes to survive future theme updates. If you directly edit the theme’s files, all changes will be lost once you update.

    Have a look at this guide to learn more about child themes and how to create one www.cssigniter.com/ignite/beginners-guide-child-themes/

    Let me know if you need additional help with this.

    Hi, Vassilis,

    Thank you for your quick response.
    If I understand correctly you have to delete and replace all the code you wrote.

    I would just like to have the same home page as the demo.
    Either a full page of images (slide) before going down to my other pages.

    Your explanation and therefore the only way to have this page?

    As for making a child of Chord I had found a plugin no worries.

    Best regards.

    Hi,

    Yes, but only if you want to use a third party slider and will apply only in the frontpage. If you just want to replicate the demo you don't need to make any code changes.

    Let me know if I can help out more

  • JIL replied

    Hello

    I'm not a beginner though.
    I don't see how to get the demo page exactly.
    When I want to modify the home page, there is a header, bar, a separator (photo x1) that prevents me from getting a full page with any object: slider, photo...
     All the changes are below this background.
    How to remove it?
    Or how to get a full page free to edit from the slider?

    It doesn't matter which silder (transition slider, smart slider...)
    If you have a specific slider please tell me its name.

    In the middle there is another bar of the colour of the turn idem impossible to remove it. here attached photo
    How to remove it?


    Thank you very much

    Sincerely.

    Jil

    Hi,

    This is depended on the slider plugin settings/styles you are using. Can you share a URL?

  • JIL replied

    Hello,

    It would be much easier to tell me what your slider is.

    Or which ones work well.

    As I said before : 

    Transition slide  lite free and smart slider 3 free

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/transition-slider-lite/

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/smart-slider-3/

    Wordpress 5.7


    Best regards

    Hi,

    Slider is inside the theme, you don't really need to install a plugin.

    Revert any code changes and create a new slide under SlideShow->Add New https://prnt.sc/116ruhq

    Then slider will appear in your frontpage as long as you have the correct template selected https://prnt.sc/116rviq under page attributes.

    Let me know if you need additional help with this.

    hi,

    Everything is ok for the home page.
    Except the identity of the site.

    How to get different colors on the name?
    On the demo chords is in white, solo in pink.

    Best regards.

    Hi there,

    we are using Logo images in our demo. You can keep your text logo and add this to change its color

    .site-logo a{color:blue;}


    in your custom CSS box under Customize-▸Additional CSS

    Let me know if you need additional help with this.

  • JIL replied

    Hello
    Ok for the color. Thanks a lot.
    For the audio player just below the slide on the home page.
    Impossible to add anything on this page
    Why not?
    If I add in the word press editor a block (audio or other) it does not appear on the page.
    How to add an audio like on the demo page?
    Best regards

    Hi there,

    This is a widget area, you can add content from Appearance->Customize->Frontpage Widgets (https://prnt.sc/118uhub) using CI theme widgets.


    Let me know if you need additional help with this.

  • JIL replied

    Hello,
    Thank you for the answer but this is not enough.
    To add widgets, no problem.
    My question is:
    How to add top Tracks ? Or add top tracks?

    I can add an album/song in widgets but it is not stuck to the slide like on the demo.

    Best regards

    Hello,
    I finally found for the audio player .
    In the Css/music player...
    In the same place I also found :
    Archive option
    For the columns (among other things), it has no effect on my pages.
    Do you know why?
    Look at the attached link

    Best regards

    Hi,

  • JIL replied

    Hi there

    I understand both issues, but there are not replicable on my end, this is why I ask a URL and a username password to login and see what is going on.

    You can try these 

    1. For archives make sure you are actually checking archive post categories and not page templates, which have their own settings

    2. Do you have any music files in the discography item? Does it autoplay in deskstop and not mobile?
