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.

Testimonials

Very good first impression followed by a clean site and helpful support. Richard continues to be informative and adaptive to our wants and to tend to our needs. I believe in the weeks to follow we’ll meet our goals, then exceed them.

When the site crashed this afternoon (as all websites occasionally do), my phone call was answered outside regular business hours. They were already aware of the problem and were working on it. The site was down for a little over half an hour– not a bad response time imo.

And it has nothing to do with their competence or professionalism, but their office building is very zen

I have worked with several different web design companies just because of the line of work I am in, I can say without a doubt that YourWebGuys is the best! I have been working with them now for well over a year and have never second guessed their ideas, motive for the betterment of the company I work for, nor their pricing!

If I call Richard, he answers directly. And if I do have to leave a message, I get a callback within the day. An email sent to support is answered within hours!

I have learned so much from his team, and look forward to working with them for many more years.

When the Mansfield ISD Education Foundation needed a fast turn-around and professional service Your-Web-Guys delivered!! Your-Web-Guys helped our foundation design and launch a new and creative way for our parents and community to help us fund more terrific projects and get much needed resources into our classrooms to benefit children! This dynamic addition to our website seemed imposssible at first, but Your-Web-Guys made it a reality and now anyone in our community or the world can donate or contribute towards our innovative teaching grants. We agree that there are many other website design companies out there but we strongly recommend Your-Web-Guys for your website design and implementation.

I have found Your-Web-Guys to be professional, creative and very, very accessible when it comes to making sure my website is functioning just as it should. I strongly recommend this company for your website design and implementation.

There are many other website design companies out there and they promise a lot. But after talking with some of them I understood that their objectives did not include taking care of, or focusing on, small business. In contrast to that, I’ve found Your-Web-Guys to be geared to work with small and growing businesses

Ed Harrison

We needed a bold, effective and usable web page that attracted the customers we were seeking for our wedding and events venue. The process was easy and flexible and Your-Web-Guys was outstanding.

They were very knowledgeable and extremely patient. We have used web designers in the past, but Your-Web-Guys will be our designers from now on. And the page was done ON TIME!

Your-Web-Guys carefully listened to our corporation representatives as we discussed every element that we needed to incorporate into a web site. We had used other web designers, but none ever addressed future as well as present needs.

Your-Web-Guys accomplished a very successful design and we were VERY pleased with our experience and the end result.
