As you know, the standard ClassiPress slider only shows up on the home page. From time to time i’m getting asked how to get the slider showing up on top of all categories. That’s not a big deal, so let’s do it.
I assume that you have AppThemes ClassiPress and your own child theme running. Time to get started:
As usual, we don’t want to modify the original files from ClassiPress. So the first thing we do is upload a copy of the original /themes/classipress/taxonomy-ad_cat.php file to our /themes/your-child-theme/ folder. Now we start to edit that copy. You can do it local our use your build in WordPress editor in your WordPress admin area => Appearance => Editor.
Open the /themes/your-child-theme/taxonomy-ad_cat.php and find around line 6 this:
Under the above code place this:
<!--Start wpMorphed Slider on top of categories -->
if ( file_exists(STYLESHEETPATH . '/featured.php') )
include_once(STYLESHEETPATH . '/featured.php');
include_once(TEMPLATEPATH . '/featured.php');
<!--End wpMorphed Slider on top of categories -->
Save your changes.
That’s it! Your featured slider will now appear on top of the categories.
