I’m trying to add a banner (that will eventually have ads in it) to a site i’m working on. I need it to be above the boxed content (content area + 1 sidebar), but below the header.
When I edit the “Home” page with the Visual Editor and click on the “Add Gallery” tab, I can add a Revolution Slider that’s 960 x 100, but when I update the page, the header becomes about twice the height it was previously and the banner overlaps the bottom half of the (now too tall) header area.
I can add a margin above the slider, which moves the it down so it no longer overlaps the header, but if I do that the header remains taller than it should be.
I don’t necessarily need to use a Revolution Slider for the ads, but I tried the Staging option and the same thing happened. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks Andy! I added the shortcode for the Rev. Slider into the “Intro Text” field, but that’s putting it at the top of the bordered boxed layout area instead of in the space above the main boxed content and below the header.
Basically, I want the slider to be in its own space below the header but above the main content area, so page’s image background shows beneath the slider.
Is there additional code I need to put into the “Intro Text” field to make this happen?
Thanks in advance,
I figure pictures would make this easier.
If I put the adslider in the “Intro Text” field, I get this:
If I add the adslider from “Add Gallery” on the Home page settings, I get this:
I’ve got the content frame color enabled for the main body content. I think the “Add Gallery” option is the answer, I’m just not sure why it’s making the header twice the height and overlapping it.
Thanks again for the help,
Here’s a screenshot of my Revolution Settings, with the “Position” option expanded on the right side:
I tried reducing the padding of the Margin Top to 0, but that just puts the slider entirely inside the header:
And if I add more padding to the Margin Top, like say 200px in this example, it moves the slider down, but the header remains double the height it should be:
Unfortunately the login didn’t give me access to the Revolution Slider. However, I can definitely confirm the spacing is coming from the Slider itself, it’s being generated from the Rev Slider plugin, so it has to be in the settings somewhere. I’d check Slide settings, Slider Setting for Margin settings.
Unfortunately, that just moves the adslider up over the lengthened header and removes the space between the slider and the content below.
I need the header to be the regular height, and the slider to fall between the header and the body content with a bit of space above and below it.
Here’s how the home page looks now:
Here’s how I need it to look (I created this image in Photoshop):
