How to replace slideshow with SmartSlider

    I have installed SmartSlider, exported/imported the settings from Joomla, got the shortcode & php code from the plugin.

    I inserted the code for the slider directly into the header.php page inside a DIV with ‘smartslider’ class. CODE BELOW

    However, when I run it, it only gives me the <div class=”smartslider”></div> container. Nothing from the PHP code is shown.

    I looked at doing this with a widget but could find no way to replace the theme slider with a widget.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    </div><!– .header –>
    <?php if ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) { ?>
    <div class=”smartslider”>
    <?php if(isset($_POST[‘width’])) {
    $width = $_GET[‘width’];
    if ($width <= 980) {
    echo do_shortcode(‘[smartslider3 slider=”3″]’);
    else {
    echo do_shortcode(‘[smartslider3 slider=”2″]’);
    <?php if( of_get_option(‘customslider’,true) == ”){ ?>
    <div class=”slider-main”>

    To use SmartSlider plugin for the homepage slider

    – Go to Appearance » Theme Options » Homepage Slider
    – Enter your slider shortcode which is provided by plugin without php tag

    That won’t work as I have two shortcodes, one for mobile & one for non-mobile.

    If you inspect the home page,, you will see the header.php DIV container for ‘smartslider’. It’s the PHP code inside that isn’t executing or showing. It’s legimate code.

    However, if I can use shortcode in the theme slider options, where would I put it?
