Adding Plug-ins into PowerBlog

(4 posts)
  1. Hi,

    I'm admittedly new to creating Web sites; I like the powerblog, but there are a few things I've been having trouble with—namely, the use of plugins. I'd like to add the WP Featured Content Slider (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-featured-content-slider/installation/) into the #branding box right below the logo, etc.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Chris

  2. Maybe the title is misleading... but I'd like to position some sort of jCarousel-type thing into that branding box. Any suggestions?

  3. Hi,

    the code would be:

    function slider() {
     ... whatever is needed to include the slider
    }
    add_action('thematic_header','slider', 7);

    .. but .. the current version of this plugin seems to be broken.

    Hey there,
    I think my situation is similar to the above example, though I'm not sure how to implement it.

    Situation
    I'm looking to accomplish something similar - placing a custom header image for each page into the branding box. I'm using the Dynamic Headers plugin by Nicasio. They suggest simply inserting this bit of code into the header area.

    <?php if(function_exists('show_media_header')){ show_media_header(); } ?>

    It works but the image is rendered above #branding. I suspect this method is intended for themes not using the 'add_action' (or I may just be totally off-base)

    Questions

    1. In your answer you say '...whatever is needed to include the header'. Does that mean to copy the entire PHP file into that space? (I suspect no, but have no idea which part to include)

    2. It makes sense that these functions would be written into functions.php - is that correct? (sorry, just want to be sure)

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    -Terry
