Feature Slider next to Universal Sidebar

5 posts in this topic



I'm trying to find the best way to place a feature slider next to a universal sidebar. I've made the slider 70% width and the sidebar would fit but I don't know how to put it next to each other. 


Aniy help would be appreciated!

Hi Kelli,


Are you trying to place this sidebar within the content area or in the sidebar column?


Looking at the way you've designed it, my recommendation would be a bit different.


I'd use the Universal for the entire area, then, implement the Grid System within it, and place the shortcode slider in one div, and content of choice in the next grid div.  See this for the code to do that method:

Hi Rob!


I guess it would be in the content area.  If you take a look here, I'd like to put a widgetized sidebar to the right of the feature slider.  What do you think is the best way?


I tried putting a sidebar inside the content area but it showed up below the slider.

I don't think the content area in a sidebar is going to answer this issue.  Instead, I think the alternative method I described earlier would apply.


As I described earlier, the link I provided would provide you with the basic code for our Grid System, enabling you to achieve the desired results. There's even a shortcode based slider there which can replace the one you have, pretty easily.

    • Can I remove the play button that appears on canvas area background images on mobile?
      By crose+
      I am using the Canvas Area section at the top of my site. I have a video playing in the background, which works really well on desktop. But on mobile video doesn't play without user interaction, so I have a static image in place as an alternate image. However when viewed on a mobile device there is now a play button over the static image that does nothing. This didn't use to happen so I imaging it is due to an upgrade. But this is really bad UX. Is there a way to remove it?
      Here is the site:
      Thanks in advance.

    • REVSlider Issue
      By jermainestegall
      Hello Danny,
      I've been experiencing problems this past week trying to add images to theREV SLIDER section of my wordpress site.  Once I upload an image, it's not visible within the DMS 2 template.  I can't see images in the media gallery or in the slider even when I refresh or clear the cache etc.  Is there something that's disabled now that was only available for 1 year?  I paid for the template.  Also, if I re-install the DMS 2 template will that help reset anything that may have become corrupt?
      Is this a function that only works for a limited time (1 year?)
      thanks again

    • DMS2 Slider is too big
      By terrykiwi83
      Hi there,
      I just have a quick question that I hope can be easily answered. Basically we are using the DMS Framework and have 'activated' the revslider on our site. The current dimensions of the revslider are 2000x800 which is way to big for our site. My question is, how can I resize it so it fits with the rest of the site (From the logo to the end of the contact text would be an ideal size), is there a setting somewhere that I haven't discovered yet? 
      The site in question is: http://megatron.homelinux.com/arataki/
      Thanks in advance :)
