Hi Guys, I have been using Eco Pro for about 18 months now, and it has been good so far. Unfortunately our site was hacked several weeks ago; and we took the opportunity to start again from scratch. So our website www.cocogreen.co.uk is back to the defaults of Eco Pro at the moment. With that we would like to use the Feature Slides with multiple backgrounds. 1 background for each 1 feature. I have had a good look through the forum and there only seems to be solutions for using 1 alternative background, rather than several. You can see several examples of the type of thing we would like to do on the hompages of these websites: http://www.haygrove.co.uk/ http://www.klasmann-deilmann.com/en/ These pages do not have a full width Feature, but we would be happy to have a full width, or non-full width feature banner with multiple backgrounds, one for each feature. If this is possible in anyway (using pagelines or not) please can people make some recommendations. Thanks very Much thomas

You can use an alternative feature slider that allows you to use feature slides with full backgrounds. One example is this one: http://wordpress.org...smooth-slider/. There are many others available and they are searchable here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins

Hi Catrina, How would I integrate this into the Eco Pro Theme on the Feature Page, without removing the three content boxes? The Index Page doesnt seem to have the code expressed in the Smooth Slider. Is this in your opinion the best slider plugin to use? Thanks

Hi Catrina I found http://wordpress.org...omotion-slider/ This works nicely. However now I want to remove the Green Banner from the Top of the Page now that expresses the Home Text

You can use the following in your CSS to get rid of it:
 #spotlight {display: none;}

I recommend downloading Firebug (http://www.getfirebug.com). Firebug makes it very easy to find things like this. :)

Hey Guys Thanks for this. I figured how to remove the display from a single page only; which is what I was looking for: .page-id-16 #spotlight {display: none;} Works a Treat All the Best Tom
