How to show pages instead of posts on the slider.

You will be familiar with wordpress themes with featured post sliders on the home page. I have a created quite a lot of them which you can find here. The sliders on those templates display posts with images from any category specified. Recently I got and email from a theme user asking if it is possible to show pages on these slider instead of posts. So I thought I will make a screencast of how to do it and post it so that it will useful for others as well. The reference material for this modification is available in the WordPress codex function reference for “query posts” . Watch the screencast and try it. Plz write down your comments if you have any.

    Thanx very much Jinsona.
    I have just tried it on Fenome theme. I am having the same problem I had with the posts not appearing in the slider, not the pages. I said, okay, maybe the pages would load okay in the slider. But sadly they too are not appearing, although I did made the changes you suggested in the video, and added featured images to the posts.

    Also, what if I want the pages under a parent page to appear in the slider, and not the parent pages?
    I am using WordPress Custom Menus to list pages in my header.

    Oh, now the images are appearing for the pages in the slider.. but not the text of the page.. should I add the text to the excerpt field? But there is no excerpt field for pages !! what should I do ?

      For the fenome slider, there are actually 2 custom queries. have changed both?

      • http://www.al-rasid.com Al-Rasid

        Thanx for replying. I have changed nothing !
        I am using a localized version of the theme, nothing at all changed in it except the directions (rtl) and the phrases (english to arabic).

        How can I make sure it is intact, and what can I do to overcome this ?

        Please Man I am still waiting for your response.. the slider is never working for me with any category.. and with pages, it only displays the images not their text..

    Hi, I just updated my WordPress to version 3.1 and noticed that my sliders now only show the latest 2 posts. It used to show the latest 20. Is this because the theme is yet to be compatible with version 3.1?

    Hi! Jinsona, its really great to use your designed theme. I’m using “Quest”, its amazing theme. But I’m facing some trouble to use this. When I configured my twitter account under the “quest options” since slider has been stopped displaying the posts those i set featured image, even slider is not being displayed. I tried hard to troubleshoot this. Please help me…

    I am attempting this with the Womack theme, which uses Piecemaker 3d slider (which appears to be different from the one you are demonstrating in this video).  When it is setup to use the post images it works beautifully.  When setting images as featured images for pages, then (1) the images are not displayed as custom headers on those pages, and (2) editing the code as you did also does not pull them into the 3d slider.

    is this tweak possible with the Womack theme? why do the images not appear as page headers and why will the 3d slider not retrieve and display them?

    thanks!
