  • In Craft, you as developer are responsible for everything that is front-end. So if you want a banner slider, you'll have to add a field on the entry where you can add images, and in your entry's template, write the needed html to display the banner. – mrsmn Aug 23 '17 at 9:43
  • Okay.Is there any demo of slider website? – Priya Aug 23 '17 at 9:48
  • I'd suggest just going trough the documentation (craftcms.com/docs/introduction) , also you could check out the courses at mijngo (mijingo.com/craft) but those aren't free – mrsmn Aug 23 '17 at 9:52

  • Actually my site is in wordpress and I want to migrate it on Craft cms. – Priya Aug 23 '17 at 12:41
  • You won't be able to use a Wordpress theme, well not without making heavy modifications to it. There might be ways to migrate the data from Wordpress to a Craft site, but for the templates, there's no real way to convert them, as Craft has a completely different way of using templates. – mrsmn Aug 23 '17 at 13:43

    One could grab the output HTML and CSS from a single blog page and use that as a base for the Twig template. You should probably check the theme’s license before doing so. – carlcs Aug 23 '17 at 13:48
