Rotating Hero Image

Description

Hero images on websites are great, but having the same one appear all the time gets… really boring. And using a slideshow on a page can add too much bloat to your code, slowing things down way too much.

Here’s a plugin that rotates multiple hero images automatically — with no code bloat. Images can change hourly if you like or set it to daily (24 hours) — or whatever you want.

This is a plugin made by a website design company. We use this plugin on our clients’ sites all the time. Now you can, too.

Display a hero banner on a page using a background image, title, description, and action button.

Add a hero image to your website’s home page or inside page of your website that automatically changes after a set amount of time. Using this plugin, the image will change, but no extra code is necessary on the front side.

You can also create a hero image on category pages. Change any of them on an hourly basis.

How to use shortcodes on your homepage or other page/post:

Use this shortcode in the editor shortcode block and it will rotate all hero images:

[wsx_hero_image]

Use this shortcode for a specific category using the category ID:

[wsx_hero_image catid="1"]

If you want to add this functionality to your template/PHP file, use the following code:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[wsx_hero_image catid="1"]'); ?>
