Once you have the Legacy child theme installed, the next thing you will want to do is download and install the Genesis Responsive Slider.
Installing the Genesis Responsive Slider from WordPress backend:
In your WordPress admin area, go to the plugins section – http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/plugins.php
Then click the “Add New” button at the top of the screen to add a new plugin.
In the search box type Genesis Responsive Slider and press enter.
On the next screen the Genesis Responsive Slider will appear, click Install Now.
The plugin will automatically be installed, when it is done, click Activate Plugin at the bottom.
Installing the Genesis Responsive Slider by FTP:
Upload the Genesis Slider folder via FTP to your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Then go to the plugins section in your WordPress backend – http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/plugins.php and activate the plugin.
Setting up the Genesis Responsive Slider
In your admin area, if you look under the Genesis menu, you will see Slider Settings http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=genesis_responsive_slider. Once you click the link, you will see all of the settings for the Genesis Slider. From here you can configure everything to your liking.
If you want the slider to look and function exactly like the Legacy Theme demo site, then use the following settings.
Time Between Slides (in milliseconds): 4000
Slide Transition Speed (in milliseconds): 500
Slider Width (in pixels): 960
Slider Height (in pixels): 350
For the excerpt settings, we have this unchecked so that the slider shows the image only. However, you can always use this to display the content in your posts or page.
Adding the Genesis Responsive Slider to your homepage
To add the Genesis Responsive Slider to your homepage, you would need to go to your widgets section http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/widgets.php. Then look for the Genesis Responsive Slider widget, and drag this to the sidebar titled “Slideshow Area” on the right.
