Looking to show more than one image for Front Page 1 section in Digital Pro as a slideshow background? In this article I show how images uploaded to a Soliloquy slider can be set as the source for Backstretch script initialized on .front-page-1 based on my previous Slideshow background via Soliloquy slider using Backstretch in Genesis tutorial.
We will set this up such that if Soliloquy plugin is not active or if a slider with the slug
front-page-1 is not present, the standard background image in the child theme's images directory will be used as the background for Front Page 1 section. If Soliloquy is indeed active and our
front-page-1 slider present, images in this slider will cycle every 3 seconds with a fade effect.
Install and activate Soliloquy (the free lite or the premium one) plugin.
Create a slider named
