4. When no Featured Image Set
Choose to display the Featured Slider even when the post does not already have its own Featured Image set.
The featured slider plugin is based on filtering the WP function “the_thumbnail”. This works for all standard themes but not with themes that have the featured image part custom coded. If you want to modify the page template (e. g. index.php, single.php or the template parts called inside) you can use the shortcode we build for that matter.
Let’s say this is what the featured image part looks like in your post template (part) (Example theme: “Total” from wordpress.org):
$total_image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id() , ‘total-blog-header’ );
echo ‘<img src=”‘.esc_url($total_image).'” alt=”‘.esc_attr( get_the_title() ).'”>’;
You now should wrap the image html with our “featured_revslider” shortcode and execute this shortcode via the WP function “do_shortcode”:
$total_image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id() , 'total-blog-header' ); echo do_shortcode('[featured_revslider]<img src="'.esc_url($total_image).'" alt="'.esc_attr( get_the_title() ).'">[/featured_revslider]');
If you want to include the featured slider freely in your content you can also always use the shortcode [featured_revslider] with no content or attributes inside your individual post’s content.
