I have hidden the dark box that comes up on the slider using the code .ei-title {
display: none !important;
}.

I would now like to know how I can make my sliders link to other pages when people click on them.

The website is - https://brisbanebooty.com.au/

Thanks.

Hii,

Firstly create a child theme using a plugin - https://wordpress.org/plugins/orbisius- ... e-creator/

Copy and paste an index-slider.php file from parent theme to the child theme and replace it with the code given in the below link and save -

https://pastebin.com/60mCEirc

Thanks.

Hi,

I do not know anything about coding. Where would I find a an index-slider.php in the parent file and which section would I past it into the child theme?

Also do I have to activate the child theme or just live preview? I don't want to lose all the work I have done on the site by activating a child theme?

Finally, are you saying I just page this code - https://pastebin.com/60mCEirc into where I get the index-slider.php on the parent theme? Then my sliders will be able to be linked and do I put the url I want the sliders to link to in the button section?

Sorry for my many questions but I do not know any coding.

Thanks,
Hannah

Step 2) After coping index-slider.php file, Open you weblizar-child theme directory and paste the copied file(index-slider.php) in your child theme directory.

Step 3) After Paste the index-slider.php file, in your child theme directory Open this file.
Replace all of the code given in this link https://pastebin.com/60mCEirc and save the file after that.

Hope you will understand now.

"Also do I have to activate the child theme or just live preview? I don't want to lose all the work I have done on the site by activating a child theme? "

For this question - Yes you need to activate your child theme. You don't need to worry about your changes. The changes will not be changing after activating the child theme.

Thanks.
