It’s probably me making this so hard. I’ve looked at hundreds of WordPress themes here on ThemeForest, but can’t find one that meets these two simple requirements:
1) A slider at the top of the home page where I can insert static images of book covers with links to their product pages. It seems every theme slider loads only blog posts or portfolio items.
2) An area beneath the slider where I can display excerpts of recent blog posts.
The first req seems to be the tough one. If anyone can point me to the right theme, I’d be grateful. Thanks!
