For my WordPress blogging friends: In an effort to ‘showcase’ certain posts at DIYShowOff, I asked Max from A1Website Pro to develop a featured image slider to control which posts I’d like to promote. You can see it in action underneath my blog header:
Easy to install, then simple to upload thumbnails or choose from your media gallery (up to 35 thumbnails!) with the option to include a link. It’s a great way to control the blog posts I’d like to feature, front and center on my home page. Cool! You can get more info at A1Website Pro along with a helpful installation tutorial.
- Upon installation, featured images will be pulled from your blog to showcase recent posts.
- The option to customize the thumbnails that show with links so that you can showcase specific posts such as seasonal, holiday-related, most popular posts, themes, link parties, blog hops, special deals, etc.
- The potential to increase page views.
Deal of the Month: A1WebsitePro is offering this awesome plugin for $10.95 (regularly priced $19.95) through the end of June 2014.
