This plugin is only for displaying thumbnails. You cannot attach links to them and you have to create a static page to display the slider in the top page. Definitely better to try other sliders that can display thumbnails and include links.

At first, I had difficulty in deciding the proper settings for the thumbnail gallery on my own. I tried different combinations, but none of them looked good in the end. I searched if I could find a guideline or something like that but couldn't find any. But then, as I contacted the team, they were very fast to get back to me and had gone through all pages one by one and specified the best adjustments for each of them. All pages look very well now. Thank you all for your support!

It only allows a minimum of 7 thumbnails, so if you have less, then it bugs out
