How can I link to a specific frame within SiteOrigin Layout Slider

so i came across this closed thread:

How can I switch to a specific slide in SiteOrigin Layout Slider?

that started me on the path i am looking for, but i need a little more help i think.

i want to be able to, within a frame, put a text link to another frame in the same Layout Slider.

i have a total of 10 Frames and all of them will have the same links.

here is the url of the SmartSlider3 version we originally did but it won’t work for what we want to do now.


any kind of detailed help would be greatly appreciated… thanks

    Hi Estudiotres

    Thanks for posting.

    This is normally beyond the scope of support we’re able to offer on the forums. Our premium support allows us the budget to assist with customizations and questions outside of normal usage.

    You might try the following. Using a Custom HTML widget, add the following anywhere on the page:

    	jQuery( function( $ ) {
    		$( '#direct' ).click( function() {
    			$( '.sow-slider-pagination li:eq(2) a' ).trigger( 'click' );
    				return false;
    		} );
    	} );

    The index is zero-based so the “2” you see above will take the user to the 3rd slide.

    You could also use a Header and Footer scripts plugin or a custom function to add the above to the site header.

    The link to direct the user to the slide in question would then be added to the frame as follows:

    <a id="direct" href="#">Show slide 3</a>

    Using the Editor widget perhaps.

    Hope that helps :)

    Andrew… You are the Man!

    this works great and with a little more jerry-rigging i am sure we can get the whole thing working perfect!

    thank you so much.

    we just started using site origin (the free version) but at this level of support, i think we will be upgrading soon.!

    Well I may have spoke too soon… I need a bit more help in making the slider work through several links.

    Ive gone ahead and purchased a premium account though so i hope that that will help facilitate my questions.
