How do I activate the layer slider

The Revolution slider is giving me error after uploading the child theme and selecting Auto. This is how it appear on the website “Revolution Slider Error: Slider with alias auto-home not found”. Check

And the Layerslider wp is asking for license activation key.

How do I get past this hurdle?


Hello Victory,

Thanks for writing in!

“Revolution Slider Error: Slider with alias auto-home not found” means that the slider does not exist. This usually happens when you import the Auto demo content while Rev Slider is not installed or active. To resolve this, you must import the Auto Slider. You can download the slider from here: and then import this to your Rev slider panel. To know more about how you can import a slider, please check this out:

Meanwhile, you do not activate Layerslider or the Rev Slider plugin. These are bundled plugins. All updates will be provided through the plugin repository. For mode details on how these plugins were integrated in the theme, please check this out:

Hope this helps.

The link is not working, I could not download and import the auto slider.

You can send it to my inbox [email remove] and I will download it.



Hello Victory,

You should be able to download it here:

Just find the download button.

Once you have downloaded the .zip file, DO NOT unzip ot. You will have to import the whole zip file so that it will work.

If nothing is working, please provide us access to your site so that we can import it for you. By the way, we do not allow emails since we have different staff checking the threads in different timezones.

Thanks for understanding.

Thanks it’s working!

You are most welcome!
