I got a question: How can I add a fifth image to the kwicks page slider? I have five products that must be shown on the front page so I really need this to work.

Kwicks slider in Simplicius template support only 4 images but if you are little skilled coder you can do it alone.

1. open css/jquery.kwicks.css and set new width for kwicks slider items(185px)
2. open header-slider-subpage.php and locate kwicks slider code.
change the line 161
from:
to:

NOTE: this is not small change in template. It may cause another issues

Good luck :-)

It worked just fine, I really like the page now, but having trouble with one more thing. I want a nextgen gallery (id=1) to appear in one of the custom html boxes. What ever I do I cant make that happen and the nextgen helpsection kinda suxs. Been searching for hours now and last resort Is you! Any idea of a tag to get [gallery=1] to work in one of the html boxes? I promise to buy a theme from you for the next site Im making :)

Hi,

open functions.php and add this line:
add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');
after line 44

Thanks! dont know where my question went but I love the answer :)

But just doing what you wrote didnt help, [gallery=1] Does not show up. Checked the link but didnt really get if there was something there I have to use, Im really not a code pro.
