    Hello
    Is it possible to change the placement of the slider? I would like to have it above my tabs/link row and below my logo.
    I would also like to have the slider the complete width of my page (not including the background, just where all of the images, info, etc. are). If this is possible how can I figure out what size my images should be to place in the slider?
    here is my website now: http://www.deannadavoli.com/wordpress
    It is majorly under construction.

    I am looking for the slider to placed similar to my friend's website here: http://www.briarmoon.com/
    I just want my links below the slider
    thanks so much!

    Hi deanna,

    Your website width is 960px, so start with that and reduce the size down until you're happy (make sure you have the 'center align' option checked)

    To get the slider in your header, check out the FAQ: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ml-slider/faq/

    Regards,
    Tom.

    Hi Tom

    ok, I think I have the slider part all set up....what I cannot seem to figure out is where to paste the php code in the header.php file. I have tried it in a few spots, but it either does not show up, or it only shows up at the very top...above the logo.

    can you please tell me where I should paste the code in the header tag? thanks again so much for your help :)

    never mind Tom...I got it. I would like to have the navigation bar flush with the slider & the search box that is above the navigation bar gone, so if you have any tips on those things, I would appreciate it.

    Otherwise, Im all set. ;)

    Hi deanna,

    I can't see the slider at the moment.

    You'll need to play around with your themes CSS. If you're not sure what firebug (for firefox) or chrome developer tools (chrome..) are then they're worth googling and learning about. With either of those tools you should be able to find the CSS that is adding the padding, then override it (or delete it) in your themes style.css file.

    Regards,
    Tom.

    Hi Tom.
    Thank you for the info. I use safari and it showed up on that browser but I did notice last night that t did not show up on google chrome, Internet explorer or my mobile phone. I. Was frustrated so I just walked away from it last night. Lol.
    I will research the firebug and see what I need to do. I am not good at CSS at all so that will be difficult for me but hopefully I can figure it out :).

    As long as you're here wrestling with Metaslider,
    I have hit a wall trying to do what I think should be an easy manipulation.
    I am running twenty-eleven, two column left with a child theme modifying the header appearance and cleaning some stuff I don't want to show up.
    I have the home page showing up OK and can work the appearance the way I want it.
    Inside the pages, different story.
    I want the pages to perform the same as the home page.
    I want my text w/links left and the slider right.
    Cannot align it right no matter what I try, CSS-PHP, nuttin seems to want to co-operate.
    I tried changing the padding settings also, no go.
    Site is Kim.KitchWard.info .
    After you see the home page hit Coastal then Greenwich.
    Thanks
    Neil

    Hi Neil,

    If it was me switch your template to one that has a left (content) column, and a right column (for metaslider).

    It will be tricky to put the slider into the same column as your text, and also have the slideshow right aligned.

    Regards,
    Tom.

    Sorry
    I think I am dealing with Theme issues for what I want,
    not Metaslider.
    I can't have the homepage sidebar image/text travel throughout the website
    Each page has to have it's own unique sidebar content and slider config.
    Gunna B a loooooong day I can see.
    Thanks
    Neil

    I'm using 2011 Theme..... no that is not ancient...... and the Meta Slider will not cooperate. When I was working on the site off line in a sub folder all seemed to be rosy but when the site was published the slider plugin and widget disappeared.

    Just an update to this thread, the issue has been fixed. It was a problem with W3 Total Cache and JavaScript minification.

    Regards,
    Tom.
