I am using the theme 'Newport' from ThemeForest. Everything was all ok however I took over this site and the previous site manager made a few mistakes so I had to remove a few of his images and replace with valid code. Being not that used to Wordpress and more used to dealing with raw code, I assume I inadvertently deleted a shortcode that displays the banner on the homepage.
I have tried everything to get this banner to appear back on the homepage with no luck. I even completely deleted the theme and reuploaded it however still no banner on homepage.
As this banner/slider is not a plugin I am struggling to find any documentation or support and I see now that this is part of the Newport theme. In the theme settings, the 'Slider' option is set to Nivo in the 'Homepage' section so it is enabled and should be there.
Can anyone help as I'm baffled as to what the problem is?
