    I have a created a custom template page for my front page which gives me a single full width column to play with.

    Now the aim is to create a big photo slideshow, either using JQuery or Flash.

    Now should I code the content area completely using my own HTML markup or should I use a Page and use a WP plugin for the slideshow?

    If I use a WP Plugin, how do I get rid of the Page title?

  2. The page title is easy to filter...

    function postheader_posttitle() {
    	if (is_page()) /*(is_page('Home') || is_page('contact')) etc....*/{
    	return ('');
    	}
            return apply_filters('postheader_posttitle',$posttitle);
    }
    add_filter('thematic_postheader_posttitle','postheader_posttitle');

    If you can find a plugin providing just the functionality you require for your gallery, why spend the time coding? If not, or if you feel you can learn from it roll your own. Obviously try to make your own code generic rather than specific to the particular site so you can re-use it or share it.

    I used the Nextgen plugin for the slideshow. But I removed the title using a direct reference to the ID in CSS. But your function looks far cleaner, thanks!
