How to create a slider with our Serious Slider plugin

Serious Slider is a fast and slick slider plugin which relies on WordPress’ custom post types functionality to provide a simple and efficient slider management system. It’s also has a design and visual functionality built on Bootstrap to give it maximum efficiency and minimum JavaScript overhead in all browsers.

While still young and with plenty of room for new features, we feel our slider plugin has already surpassed the capabilities and robustness of our previous theme integrated slider. Find out why we decided to write it and recommend it with our themes and most importantly, how to use it.

How to use manual excerpts in posts

WordPress automatically generates excerpts (short introductory texts) out of the posts’ content. However, it also implements the ability to manually type in the posts excerpts instead of the auto-generated ones.
This functionality is slightly hidden in the screen options, but can be quickly activated and used.
