Header with slideshow of pictures

I was wondering if it was possible to have a slideshow in the header instead of just a static picture.
Thank you very much!


Can you please provide a link to your website?

Yes, of course!
Here you go:

Hello, thank you for the link.

You can try to do the following.

  1. Remove Header Image in Customize → Header → Header Media section.

  2. Remove content in Customize → Header → Header text section.

  3. Add this CSS code in Customize → Additional CSS section in order to hide (not remove) default Ignis hero area:

.ignis-hero-area {
    display: none;
  1. Install a slider plugin (for example Meta Slider) and create a slider.

  2. Create a new row at the top of your home page and add slider shortcode using the default Custom HTML widget.

  3. Edit the row (not Custom HTML widget itself), expand Layout section, and select Full Width Stretched option for Row Layout.

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hello. Thank you very much for your answer.
I just have one question before trying it out: will this also remove the animated text on the header? Because I would like to keep that. :confused:


will this also remove the animated text on the header?

Yes, it will remove the animated text. But Meta Slider plugin has animated layers feature, so you can try to achieve something similar. Here is a relevant documentation page:
