    I have tried to eliminate the controls from the featured slider. This Additional CSS seems to have eliminated the controls (prev and next) but the indicator “dots” still appear to control the displayed image:

    .cycle-prev #prev, .cycle-next #next {
    display: none;

    I would like to “hide” those dots that indicate which of my 4 images are being displayed.

    Also, I am pulling out my hair trying to figure out how to put a stop to the pause-on-hover behavior. I would like it to continuously rotate through the images without pausing. I tried adding
    featured-slider.php to my child theme top directory but it seems to ignore it when I change the line
    data-cycle-pause-on-hover=”true” (to read) data-cycle-pause-on-hover=”false”. Even after saving the file and loading the page in a different browser it makes no change.

    I love this theme, but, what am I doing wrong? Did I make a terrible mistake when I renamed the theme from rock-start-pro-child (which I D/L from Catch Themes) to rock-star-pro-child ??? And is that why my child theme seems to be getting ignored?

    My test site is:

    Is it not a good practice to use Additional CSS and a child theme? If I was pressed for time I would hire a customizer.


    @karl : To remove the dots add the following additional css.

    .header-image-slider .cycle-pager{
    	display: none;

    Add the following code to the functions.php file of the child theme.

    function rock_star_featured_slider() {
    	global $post, $wp_query;
    	// get data value from options
    	$options             = rock_star_get_theme_options();
    	$enable_slider       = $options['featured_slider_option'];
    	$sliderselect        = $options['featured_slider_type'];
    	$enable_slidersocial = $options['featured_slider_enable_social_icons'];
    	$imageloader         = $options['featured_slider_image_loader'];
    	// Get Page ID outside Loop
    	$page_id = $wp_query->get_queried_object_id();
    	// Front page displays in Reading Settings
    	$page_on_front = get_option('page_on_front') ;
    	$page_for_posts = get_option('page_for_posts');
    	if ( 'entire-site' == $enable_slider  || ( ( is_front_page() || ( is_home() && $page_for_posts != $page_id ) ) && 'homepage' == $enable_slider  ) ) {
    		if ( ( !$output = get_transient( 'rock_star_featured_slider' ) ) ) {
    			echo '<!-- refreshing cache -->';
    			if ( $enable_slidersocial ) {
    				$sliderclass = "main-slider with-social sections";
    			else {
    				$sliderclass = "main-slider sections";
    			$output = '

    To see your changes instantly you will need to clear the transient. To clear Transient : Go to customizer preview and make any change you like. After the transient is cleared the slider will not stop on Hover.
    Let me know if you need further assistance.



    Thank you Tikaram!

    When I tried to copy/paste from the email into a text editor, I ended up with extra linefeeds in the code. When I came back to this topic and did copy/paste into a text editor, it worked perfectly. I was able to copy/paste it into my child functions.php without any issues!
