Got it installed ok, and it appears to be in place. But I have no ‘options’ menu where I can change settings. I’m also not familiar with custom fields. So unless I’m missing something this plugin requires too much research to do what I want, meaning that even if I spend the time to figure it out no one else on the site will be able to tweak it.

I am using a wordpress plug in for coin slider and I am not sure where I need to copy and paste the code in to which template. There are so many. Can you tell me specifically which template please? I already tried to paste it in to the main index.php file and it didn’t work.

Thank you,

Thank you for this plugin

Is there any way to add an alt tag to the images in the slider? I noticed some of my competition does this but coin slider looks way better 🙂

One other thing to point out is that an online business administration diploma is designed for people to be able to efficiently proceed to bachelors degree courses. The Ninety credit diploma meets the other bachelor diploma requirements when you earn your associate of arts in BA online, you should have access to the most up-to-date technologies in this particular field. Some reasons why students need to get their associate degree in business is because they are interested in this area and want to obtain the general training necessary previous to jumping right into a bachelor diploma program. Thanks for the tips you actually provide as part of your blog.

I’m depressingly retarded at following any sort of web tutorials unless they’re ridiculously specific… if someone could help me out please:

‘3. Put in your template’

What exactly is the ‘template’? I only want to use this plugin on one of my pages.

4. For each post that you want to be featured you must have custom field (csImage by default) with full url to image and optionaly field (csText by default) with text for title bar.’

I obviously haven’t got to this part yet but I don’t really follow it either.

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi there. thanks for the awesomeness, but I am having some trouble trying to link images in the slider. I would like to feature an image on the slider, and a user be able to “click” that image, and they are taken to the corresponding product page. I am us WP eCommerce.

Coin Slide 4 for WordPress Question:

Does anyone know how the order of images is determined? It is based on the associated Post date, or something else?


George O'Neill on April 27, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Hello Low ! I’m not english too ! For the pictures, you have first to go to the configuration page and see the “Image Field”. There, you can put, for example, the name “Picture”

You don’t have to create any folder for the pictures. You just have to put the URL of the picture you want to use directly in your post in the custom field section (with the name “Picture” in our example).

And that’s it !
