We're trying to get a WOWSlider slideshow onto our Homepage. Anyone successful in having done this? Can you help direct us with any code that needs to be written? Thank you!

Hi MaryLouise5639

There are a lot of 3rd party tools, slide shows, image scrollers etc, that can often be integrated into your site as long as you know where to import the files, and where to insert any necessary code. Have they provided you with any instructions? You usually don't have to write code with these types of things. Most companies provide it for you.

Try to contact the maker of the "wow slider". Ask them if they can give you instructions. There will likely be some files you need to upload into the file manager, and there will likely be an HTML script that needs to be placed in the body of the site.

Why doesn't Homestead make it EASY to add an image slider to a website?

This is a popular request, so I created an Idea topic so others can add their requests and have it more visible to the developers. Thanks for you our comment!!! Please reference the new topic here: Can Homestead please create tool for Flash / Image Slidershows?

I want to create something more than just what Homestead has for my slider I have created a HTML version but for what ever reason it is not working do I need to create a file in a folder that has the images.

I am using WOW Slider http://wowslider.com/

I was successful in loading my wow slider to homestead and it works great from Chrome, but I've noticed some browser compatibility issues with firefox and my mobile browser.

After you create your wow slider using the WOW software:
1. Use the Homestead file manager to upload your files. The homestead file manager can be found by clicking on your domain to the left of Account at the top right of your screen. After you click on your domain you'll see an option to manage files.
2. Upload the entire folder that was produced by the wow slider. Since you cannot upload folders into the homestead file manager, you will need to create a folder for your slider and then create all of the subfolders for the wow slider within the homestead file manager.
3. Once all of your files are uploaded, then you can open the "iframe_index.html" page.
4. Copy the iframe tags
5. From within the homestead site editor insert HTML and then click edit.
6. Paste your iframe tags into the dialogue box.
7. Click Ok to finalize
8. Save your page then click preview to view your content. (in chrome this seems to work fine, still attempting to resolve the multi browser issues).

I'll post back when I resolve this issue.

I can't believe Homestead does not have an image slideshow option. I am about to terminate my account and move onto something more up to date. We shouldn't have to us another program to set this up
