How To Configure Featured Content Slider

This tutorial is configuring for the slider you can see on many of my blogger themes.

To setup this featured image slider with your content you need to visit "Edit HTML" page of your blog.

Find this line:
<!-- Featured Content Slider Started -->

There are 5 slides in the slider. Each slide code is wrapped by <div class='fp-slides-items'> and </div>. Look at the example code below. It is the first slide code of one of my theme:
<!-- Slide 1 Code Start -->
<div class='fp-slides-items'>
<div class='fp-thumbnail'>
<a href='#'><img src='http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-BVtVmHgtiqo/VWkYK9E8H4I/AAAAAAAANXg/6bhrTsmzSi8/s1600/1.jpg'/></a>
</div>
<div class='fp-content-wrap'>
<div class='fp-content'>
<h3 class='fp-title'>
<a href='#'>This is default featured slide 1 title</a>
</h3>
<p>
Go to Blogger edit html and find these sentences.Now replace these sentences with your own descriptions.This theme is Bloggerized by Lasantha - Premiumbloggertemplates.com. 
</p>
</div>
<div class='fp-prev-next-wrap clearfix'>
    <a class='fp-next' href='#fp-next'/>
    <a class='fp-prev' href='#fp-prev'/>
</div>
</div>
</div>
<!-- Slide 1 Code End -->

Now replace,

  • "This is default featured slide 1 title" with your featured post title.
  • "#" with your featured post URL.
  • "Go to Blogger edit html and find these sentences.Now replace these sentences with your own descriptions.This theme is Bloggerized by Lasantha - Premiumbloggertemplates.com." with your slider description.
  • "http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-BVtVmHgtiqo/VWkYK9E8H4I/AAAAAAAANXg/6bhrTsmzSi8/s1600/1.jpg" with your slider image.
Now we have configured the first slide. Final slide code will look like this:
<!-- Slide 1 Code Start -->
<div class='fp-slides-items'>
<div class='fp-thumbnail'>
<a href='http://www.bloggertipandtrick.net/best-free-wordpress-security-plugins/'><img src='http://www.bloggertipandtrick.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/iThemes-Security.jpg'/></a>
</div>
<div class='fp-content-wrap'>
<div class='fp-content'>
<h3 class='fp-title'>
<a href='http://www.bloggertipandtrick.net/best-free-wordpress-security-plugins/'>10+ Best Free WordPress Security Plugins</a>
</h3>

</div>
<div class='fp-prev-next-wrap clearfix'>

</div>
</div>
</div>
<!-- Slide 1 Code End -->

How To Configure Navigation Menus

In this tutorial,I am going to explain how to configure a navigation menu of a template.This tutorial Not Only for below navigation menu configuration,But Also this will helpful to configure any CSS navigation menu.

For example lets look at how to configure below navigation menu.


Login to your Blogger account --> "Template" --> "Edit HTML" of your blogger blog.

Find the word "Advertise".(using Ctrl+F keys)

You can see like this code:

Change the name "Advertise" if you want. In this example I do not change the name "Advertise",Because I have a advertise URL.

Replace "#" mark with the URL you want to go when click on the name "Advertise".

My Advertising URL is "http://buysellads.com/buy/detail/24170"

So I replace "#" mark with the my Advertising URL.After doing this it will look like this:



Now I have configured "Advertise" link of above navigation menu.Other links (Contact,Support,About) configurations are also same to this method.So you can configure all navigation links vey easily.

Look at the example below


Note : You do not need to change "Home" URL,because it is automatically linked to your homepage.

After doing this changes save your template.

I think this easy tutorial will helpful for you.
