    How does this plug-in work? Do you have to use a shortcode?
    One way to do that:

    Look here, you can simply add a new widget area after the header and put your shortcode there.

    I, too, really like the Customizr theme, but the Revolution Slider plugin (premium plugin, $19) allows me to add animation to each slide. I cannot get them to talk to each other.

    A graphic in my media library will have "Revolution Slider Options", and the dropdown lists my Revolution Slider templates, but when I change the dropdown to a template and save the document the dropdown reverts back to default, and my Revolution Slider does not appear.

    I would prefer not to, but I could turn off the slider options, hack the code in a child theme and add the Revolution Slider into the right php file, wherever I can find it, maybe parts/class-content-slider.php. This is messy.

    I can get the Revolution Slider to work very well in a post using a shortcode, but not to replace the default front page slider.

    Has anyone else replaced the front page slider with the Revolution Slider?

    Thanks

    Can I know how you use this Revolution Slider? Can you use shortcodes?

    The Revolution Slider plugin allows you to set up a slide show or a template. When you create a slide show you also create a shortcode. For each slide show you add images and for each image you add layers, It is in the layers where you have text/images move around and animate.

    Once you save your slide show you create a post, post in your shortcode, and save. View the post and your animation comes alive.

    For example I named my slide show "slider1". The short code was [rev_slider slider1] so I paste this shortcode into a post and it appears. You can also add the slider using php or html, but I have not done this so far.

    I still do not know how to add the Revolution slider to the front page slider of Customizr.

    So, if you follow the above link ( http://www.themesandco.com/snippet/add-widget-area-header/ ) to create a widget area after the header, and then paste the revolution slider shortcode in a text widget and you put this widget in the new area, you will have the slider you want.

    d4z_c0nf, thank you very much for the tip. I created a widget area under the banner, inserted my revolution slider into it, and turned off the default slider. The Revolution slider works very well.

    I really like this theme.

    Yeah, you can do that in different ways, this is just one more flexible, one day you could want to not use a slider but something else, or.. now you can add other widgets there.. and so on.
    You're welcome!
    Hopefully also mohammed islam could solve..
