That does not matter, you simply need to add the shortcode for your slider
where ever you like. I have placed it in the header.php around line 80, because I want the slider above all content:
I have tried it below the main column of the content, and that worked, too, because the "masterslider" is a responsive plugin, means the slider adapts to the width that you set in the slider settings. AND: the slider is responsive.
It is easy to implement by just adding the shortcode in the header.php for example (as in my case). If you'd like to place it over the content you need to put the shortcode in the file "inc" -> "page-title.php" in line 2 or 7, depending on where you'd like to show it.
Replacing the featured slider you can delete line 9 in index.php and replace it by the shortcode
That's all and it worked fine in my case.
However: I use the HUEMAN theme from Alex' website, not the light edition here of the WordPress rep! I don't know, if this might make a difference for that case.
