Full Screen Slider/Hero Section

From here you can add up to three rotating sliders (or one single hero section) which are displayed full screen, and are automatically resized to fit the device being viewed on.

You have a choice of overlay patterns and you can also change the darkness of your slider background images. If you don’t want to use an overlay pattern select ‘None’. The darkness can be adjusted from 0 which will display your image with no darkness effect, up to 100 which will display as totally black. The overlay pattern and darkness setting is applied to all three of the slides.

For each slide you can change the background image, the title, the sub-title text, the left button and the right button.
We recommend a minimum image size of 1600px x 900px to ensure that it will scale well on all screen sizes.
Both the left and right buttons can be set to link through to a page of your choice, simply select the page to link to from the dropdown selector.

Featured Services

This section will show your four latest blog posts by default. You can choose not to show this area on your home page by checking the box next to ‘Disable Featured Section’.

To set your own featured services and override the latest posts, you should select a page for at least the first feature from the dropdown selector. You can choose from 1 to 4 features to display on your home page and they will be scaled across the width of the page accordingly.

You can choose an icon to display with each feature from the dropdown selector. The icons are rendered using the FontAwesome icon set. For a full list of available icons please see here.

The title of each feature is taken from the title of the page you have selected.

The text below the title is taken from the excerpt of your chosen page, if you have entered an excerpt for that page. If the excerpt is empty it will display a short snippet of your page content.

A clickable ‘Read More’ button can be displayed when your visitors hover over each feature. To enable this make sure you have checked the box next to ‘Enable Read More Buttons’.

About Us Section

By default this displays a random post. To override this, select a page from the dropdown selector. The middle text displays the excerpt of your chosen page, if you have added an excerpt. The image is the featured image for that page. If you have not uploaded an image in the ‘Featured Image’ section of your chosen page, the default Interceptor image will be displayed.

If you do not wish to display this section, make sure you check the box next to ‘Disable About Us Section’.
