Make these changes:
  • Replace ADD POST URL-1, 2, 3, 4, 5 HERE with the URL of your post pages one by one. These URLs will be added twice for each slide. Once for the image and second time for the Post title.
  • Replace ADD IMAGE-5 LINK HERE with the Image link of the Featured post. By default all images have width:580px; height:266px; You can edit the image size by editing the width and height in the CSS code shared in step#6. Make sure all your images must have same size
  • Replace WRITE POST TITLE HERE... with the title of your Post Page
  • Replace WRITE POST DESCRIPTION HERE with the Post Page description. You can write the first few lines of your post here and the readers can read the full post by clicking the title.
  • To Change the Overall size of the slider container then edit in step#6 the following two codes -> width:608px and height:400px
   9.   Save your template and you are done! Visit your blog and say Bingo! :>
