My rough notes to myself about some of the custom changes I have done to the blog.
I am using word press with below plug-ins
1> SmartSlider3 – to add photos in a slider
2> TablePress to create excel like tables easily (surprising there is no built-in way, at least I have not seen one so far, and it is always little bit of extra work to export your excel data to similar tabular format).
To add slider based image on my main page, I have made below changes:
Appearance – Editor
on right hand side, go to header.php and add below code.
if ( is_front_page() )
when you will create a slider in new pluging, you will get one id number, in my case it was 2 so need to change accordingly.
