The main feature slideshow located near the top 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.

Here is a look at the Features Layout Options for this widget.

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 complete the following.

  • Select your RokSprocket Features widget in the Choose Widget field.
  • Enter fp-roksprocket-slideshow in the Custom Variations field.

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