    I’m already using featured content area on homepage to navigate to main pages on website. On one of those pages I’d like to highlight a different set of pages, in effect one level down the hierarchy. So…

    Homepage features “Accommodation” “Spectacular Views” “Things To Do”

    “Things To Do” page features “Golf” “Day Trips” “In the Neighbourhood” etc

    I can probably achieve what I want by clever use of divs containing images and links on the “Things To Do” page, but I like the way the featured content area on the homepage behaves responsively.

    @Pratik,

    So I got interested and went digging…

    The Web Developer extension on Firefox lets me trace CSS styles. So, if I clear out my child theme style.css:

    The Featured Page title link in the Featured Content area of my homepage gets its color (#222222) from line 1066 of the parent style.css further modified by line 1031. Strangely, it does not seem to be recognised as an “a” element, so it is not picking up the adjacent CSS rules for link color or hover color.

    By contrast, the Featured Page title link in the widget area is recognised as an “a” element and gets its color from parent style.css line 495 (#21759b) modified by line 1720 (#222222), and gets its :hover color (#0088cc) from line 1723.

    When I reinstate the new lines in my child theme style.css, the CSS trace shows that’s where the :hover color is declared.

    I really should get out more…

    I have another question about CSS styles for input forms but I’ll start another thread for that!

    Many thanks for all your help.

    Hi @Pratik,

    I haven’t edited style.css and my only plugins are Catch Updater, Jetpack and Contact Form 7.

    I dropped your suggested code into my child theme style.css file (which didn’t specify any hover characteristics) and it seems to work, thanks.

    Thanks @Pratik, it’s 99% working!

    Any idea why the Featured Page title link hover color is not changing to blue?

    I’ve added my “Accommodation” page as a Featured Page widget in the homepage sidebar as a comparison.

    Delighted at the implementation of the Read More tag in Featured Content now.

    Thanks, @Sakin. I can see the slider is behaving properly in your demo. However, if I Select Slider Type = Demo Featured Slider in my WordPress control panel, it also shows the slide then stop problem.

    I’ve sent you an email with the address of my development website.

    I am seeing the same problem as @NickBallDesign: the featured page slider on my home page (currently under development) is getting to the last slide, then stopping. Can you advise a fix?
