    Default Featured Content Gallery

    Has anyone installed the Featured Content Gallery on a Socrates theme and successfully used it.

    I tried using the header-footer plugin to make this show only on the home page...didn't work.

    I did paste the code into the header.php...but now the featured content gallery shows on every page.

    Any advice on how I can get this plugin to work on ONLY the home page and to get the FGC to line up properly?

    Appreciate any advice.

    Maybe you know of a better plugin that will show images and a brief description of the post.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Default Featured Content Gallery

    As I continue to search...I have discovered how to get the
    Featured Content Gallery to work on only one page...

    insert the following code in your header.php file

    <?php if (is_page('your title here') )
    {
    include (ABSPATH . '/wp-content/plugins/featured-content-gallery/gallery.php');
    }
    ?>

    Now I just can't seem to figure out how to get my FCG to line up correctly...

    I am sure this is really some basic HTML...code issue...but I don't know.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Burt

    Try moving the code you placed in the header.php file directly below this line in index.php

    <div id="im-mainContent" class="im-mainContent">

    Default Featured Content Gallery

    Thanks greatly!

    I had cut it out of the header.php and pasted it right into the index.php but forgot I needed to update the header.php before going to the index.

    Moving too fast I guess.

    Thanks for setting me straight ------>

    Working great now!

    Hey Dan

    I'm trying to put this on my homepage too.

    I've just watched their instructional video: http://vimeo.com/3299013

    Can you tell me if the new Socrates Version that includes the feature slider is going to make the 'custom fields' section where you need the absolute url for the image, thumbnail image and text etc more automated? Or will it be the same process that I just need to get used to as mentioned in the video at 10:30 approx?

    Also, if my page that I want the FCG to appear on is called new-home is the code I used this?

    PHP Code:
    <?php if (is_page('new-home') )
    {
    include (
    ABSPATH '/wp-content/plugins/featured-content-gallery/gallery.php');
    }
    ?>

    All you need to do in Soc 3.0 is assign a featured image and put in featured category. Rest is automatic.
