A few general questions



Best Answer Danny , 26 August 2012 - 11:24 AM

Hi,

 

1. The Feature Slider is a slider which displays one slide at a time containing content from either a post/page. The Carousel can display multiple thumbnails/images at one time which you can then navigate through.

 

The Feature slider and Carousel have no similarities, apart from they both have the ability to show several pieces of content in a limited amount of space.

 

2. To use the Quick Slider section, all you need to do is login to your Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop, select the template you wish to have the Quick Slider active and use our drag and drop to add the Quick Slider section to the "Active Sections".

 

Once you have completed the above, go to Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Pages, create or edit a page, on the right side there is an area called "Page Attributes", in the drop down menu under templates, select the template you added the Quick Slider to and then click "Save Draft".

 

When the page reloads, scroll down until you see the PageLines Meta Settings, click on the Quick Slider settings and use these options to add images/text to your slides.

 

3. The best Slider/Carousel to use is the one you feel is right for your sites design. The best course of action would be for you to use each one and see which suits your site best.

 

4. I apologise but I am not quite sure what you're referring to when you say "QuickMast". Would it be possible for you to reply and provide more information please.

 

5. The Full Width sidebar can be found by logging into your Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop and is available in Page Templates, Morefoot and Footer.

 

6. I have provided you with a link to our demonstation website, which has all the shortcodes and examples. http://demo.pagelines.me/tools/ 7. Bootstrap is a Framework created by Twitter and is awesome. We have implemented aspects of Twitter Bootstrap features and functionality into a recent update of PageLines Framework. This includes new sections called Hero, Masthead, Scroll Spy and Fixed Nav/NavBar. Along with Bootstraps grid system. The link I provide above, has more information.

Thanks again, you have been a great help :)
