How to Customize the Slider

Mission News Pro comes with a slider you can add below the header of the site. Follow these steps to add and customize the slider:

  1. Visit the Customizer (Appearance → Customize)
  2. Click on the Slider section
  3. Click on the Content section
  4. Switch the Display slider? setting to "Yes"

At this point, you can choose where to display the slider on your site and where you want to source the posts from.

If you choose to use your latest posts in the slider, you can use all of your latest posts or choose a specific category or tag. You can also choose the max number of posts to include in the slider.

If you select the Custom Posts option, you'll get access to a custom post selector instead:

You can choose to display any number of posts you want using this setting.

Style the slider

In the Style section, you can choose to auto-rotate through the slides, show/hide the navigation elements, change the background color, and italicize the post title.
