Hi Guys,

Still building my Site Template, with a view for it to turn into a nice Wordpress Theme.

All I wanted to ask was, for the homepage, I want to add a nice left/right slider.

When I was doing the “Author Test” here, it mentioned that any online plugins / code (for example AnythingSlider) would require permission from the author(s) to use.

This has probably been asked before, but in your guys experience, what sliders are allowed for use in a Site Template / Theme Item. If I was to use the AnythingSlider plugin for example, would my item be rejected?

Or Should I just build my own one from scratch?

Many thanks guys,

Excited to be part of this community :)

Do not forget to add the fail-safe cod to that JavaScript code… (you know the situations when jQuery is not working or it is disabled on some old browsers and you still have to render that content)

..add that and everything should be Hunky Dory.
