Hi, I am currently using the debut free theme, I would like to know how I could create a featured collection carousel slider like the one below, where I can place all my products on one single row and loop through them all by clicking the arrow left or right on my shopify homepage section


I'm not sure what specific liquid file or code I'd have to modify to create this effect, or if there is an available premium theme that does this for me. 


The image below is from grantcardone.com that's the exact effect that I would like on my store. 
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hey there!

My name is Aaron, I'm a guru here at Shopify!

That's totally doable - there's a couple ways you could get that function!

The first would be use of an app - that would allow you to stick with the theme that you've currently got and just introduce the carousel.  You can see apps that might help you accomplish this right over here, and I might recommend looking into Banner Slider or Lookbook in particular!  They're paid options, but both offer a free trial period so that you can see if they'll work for you.

You could also move to a paid theme that offers a carousel function built in - here's some you can check out that have that feature natively!

Finally - if you really want to stay with the theme you currently have and you'd rather not use an app - you could always have the coding custom created for you by a third party expert for hire.  We've a list that you can check out right over here!

Hope that's helped!  Please feel free to give us a call or start a live chat at any time, we're open 24/7 for your convenience and always happy to assist!

Cheers,
