Iridescent: Recreating the Demo - Slideshow

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Iridescent Theme for WordPress

Slideshow Section


Here is the widget breakdown for the Slideshow section:

RokSprocket (Features)

This area of the demo is a RokSprocket widget. You will need to do two things to prepare this widget so that it looks similar to the one in the demo.

First, you will need to create the RokSprocket Widget. You can do this by navigating to Administration -> RokSprocket Admin and creating a new Features widget.

You can find out more about RokSprocket and how to set up and modify widgets by visiting our RokSprocket documentation.

NOTE: If you are using the the RocketLauncher, there are some special instructions concerning the handling of the preset images for this widget. If you notice your images aren't changing as expected, or if you would like more information on how this was set up, you can find it here.

Simple Provider

We used the Simple Provider to enable us to create custom RokSprocket content without having to create separate posts or pages to do so. Here are the details of one of the Simple Items in the Featured Article List.

Title <span class="wow fadeInDown">Vibrant and Interactive</span>

The Full Slideshow theme is unique to Iridescent and was created to give the RokSprocket mode a certain set of attributes that enables it to look the way it does in this theme. You can find more information about overriding themes here.

You can set the RokSprocket filters to include any category, specific posts, or otherwise you would like to have featured in this widget.

Once you have created this widget, you can add it via the Widgets menu by clicking RokSprocket and dragging it to the appropriate section. When you have done this, you will need to return to the Widgets settings and fill them out as noted below:

Option Setting
Choose Widget (Select the RokSprocket Widget You Just Created)
Custom Variations fp-slideshow fp-preset-images

Leaving everything else at its default setting, select Save.

The widget should now be created and ready for use on the front page of your WordPress site.

NOTE: If you are using the RocketLauncher package, and are not wanting to display more than one preset to display your website with Iridescent, please remove the 'fp-preset-images' variation in the RokSprocket Widget - Custom Variations field so you can simply use RokSprocket's Image field to display your image.
