How to Edit Slides in Your Promo Slider

This tutorial assumes you know how to add slides to your promo slider.  If you do not please see our tutorial on Adding Slides to Your Promo Slider first

The slides in your promo slider are unlimited and do not expire automatically.  Because of this, you will want to remove or edit them at times.  Here is how you do so:

To find the posts that have slides associated with them

  • Make sure you are logged in to your admin area. Click here if you are not sure how to do this.
  • From any screen you may be working on, click the Posts menu item on the left.
  • When you click on the posts menu link it will bring up a chronological list of posts that have already been published.
    • Beware that this list is paginated so if you have more than 10 posts total some might be on additional admin pages
    • You can navigate through at the top or bottom of the list on the right side.
    • You can also use the search form on the upper right to find the post you are needing to edit.
  • On the left of the list of posts there is a column titled Promo Slider, a green checkmark will be next to the title of any posts that have slides associated with them.

To edit a slide

  • To edit any of the existing slides simply click on the title of the post next to the green checkmark to bring up the edit post page.
  • Scroll to the Promotions panel below the main content area.
    • If you do not see the promotions panel, click the drop down menu on the upper left corner of the panel directly below the main content area
    • Select Promotions and click the load button
  • Make any edits to the fields you need
  • Click the blue update button in the upper right corner to commit the edits

To delete a slide

Because we do not want to ever delete a post completely as search engines may be sending traffic to it, you only want to delete the slide.  To do this you only need to delete the slide associated with the post, not the post itself.

  • Simply click on the title of the post next to the green checkmark to bring up the edit post page.
  • Scroll to the Promotions panel below the main content area.
    • If you do not see the promotions panel, click the drop down menu on the upper left corner of the panel directly below the main content area
    • Select Promotions and click the load button
  • In the promo-image field, click the checkbox next to the thumbnail of the slide image.
  • Click the blue update button in the upper right corner and the slide will be removed, but the post will remain.
