I’m trying to figure out how to add a blog post carousel right beneath my header, like this website: http://www.laurafadora.com
Do you have any recommended plugins where I’d be able to do that? I have Elementor Pro, but it doesn’t have anything (that I know of) for building a clean blog post carousel.GP Premium 1.6.2April 18, 2018 at 9:38 pm #554330LeoStaffCustomer Support
I would recommend checking out Tom’s WP Show Posts: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-show-posts/
Should be able to achieve something similar.

Thanks for the suggestion – would I need Pro? Also, looks like Tom was planning on adding a carousel feature last year, but didn’t see anything as to if it had ever been added: https://wpshowposts.com/support/topic/suggestion-horizontal-ajax-pagination/April 19, 2018 at 9:24 am #554916LeoStaffCustomer SupportApril 19, 2018 at 9:33 am #554921Clare
Oops, my bad – I hadn’t double checked and assumed it was a carousel. This site is a carousel for sure: http://mayholicdesign.com

The beta version of WPSP Pro has a carousel feature, but it still needs a little work.
If you Google “WordPress post carousel”, you should find quite a few plugins which may be worth checking out.May 9, 2018 at 4:33 pm #571875Clare
Thanks Tom and Leo for input! I couldn’t find wordpress post carousel widget I liked enough, so I decided to have a static post at the top, like in the very first example given. However, I ran into another header/post grid problem.
I used Elementor Pro to create the static, horizontal grid post (like the first link), but I can’t figure out how to place it on my blog, below my logo header, but above my list of posts.May 9, 2018 at 6:27 pm #571928LeoStaffCustomer Support
Should be the After Header hook:
With the blog page condition:

Got it! But it’s showing throughout the website, even though though I only want it on the blog page. Here’s my code:
<?php if ( is_home() ) : ?>
<?php endif; ?>May 9, 2018 at 8:52 pm #572006LeoStaffCustomer SupportMay 9, 2018 at 11:01 pm #572057Clare
That solved it! I was uneasy about checking that, since I don’t know much about PHP (I did little PHP work via a plugin earlier today and it caused my site to totally fail)
Thank you!May 10, 2018 at 8:31 am #572493LeoStaffCustomer SupportOctober 2, 2019 at 2:34 am #1024055Berto
Has the carousel featured been added to pro? I don’t use WPSP but I am thinking of using this for a new projectOctober 2, 2019 at 5:37 am #1024159DavidStaffCustomer SupportOctober 2, 2019 at 5:58 am #1024170Berto
