Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Genesis Responsive Slider plugin, part of WordPress and Genesis DIY: Restaurant Website.
- The next plugin I want to show you…is the Genesis Responsive Slider plugin.…In the Swank demo, they're using this plugin…to slide multiple images,…but we're only going to use it for one image…and we're going to put a text overlay on it.…That image will be one that is representative…of the restaurant and also has…a nice welcome message for our visitors.…To install it, we're going to go back…to our WordPress Admin,…go to the plugins Add New section,…and search for the Genesis Responsive Slider.…Once we install it and activate it, let's see how it works.…
