Slider questions

Recommended Posts

I have a number of questions regarding the full width slider so thought it best to wrap them under one post. I can't find any resources with the answers so here goes...

The demo shows layers of text over the slider on two lines. I can only get one line of text. How do I split onto two?

There is section for customisation of classes/CSS. Where can I see examples of what can be done here?

I would like to add a buy now button and 30 day trial button as overlays / layers on the slider. Is this possible?

Finally, is it possible to change the height of the slider? I can't see anywhere possible to change the height?

Many thanks in advance for your help with these questions.

Hi,

 

 

The demo shows layers of text over the slider on two lines. I can only get one line of text. How do I split onto two?

I believe you simply add a <br /> to the breaking point in your text.
 

There is section for customisation of classes/CSS. Where can I see examples of what can be done here?

In DMS toolbar, you'll see Custom Code.   There are no demos of CSS there.  It is simply a place to add code. If you want to see examples of CSS, review our documentation at http://docs.pagelines.com AND, use Chrome's Inspection Tools or Firebug for Firefox (www.getfirebug.com) to look at the exact code for each part of your site (or any other).  You can see the CSS, test it and see how it affects the element.

 

I would like to add a buy now button and 30 day trial button as overlays / layers on the slider. Is this possible?

You should be able to add those buttons in the text, using shortcodes. See the docs for examples of code. http://docs.pagelines.com/tutorials/shortcodes

 

 

Finally, is it possible to change the height of the slider? I can't see anywhere possible to change the height?

 

It is possible to achieve with CSS.

Hi thanks for your help this is great. I almost have it nailed but im still struggling with a few items.  Ive managed to get the break lines and the buttons appearing (but they still have a transparent grey background to them which looks odd as its not positioned very well.  Is there any way that I can exclude the transparent grey background for this particular segment of text i.e. after the <br/> tag, but only for the line which contains the button?

 

Also I must be doing something stupid but I cannot get the css for the height of the slider? I've tried all sorts and also using the slider id=... and customising the height of this specific css code but still no luck.  Can someone point me in the right direction? I've got to say I thought this plugin would have a simple height controller.

 

Many thanks

Give me a link and I'll try to find the CSS for you.

 

Are you using Chrome's Inspection tools or Firebug for Firefox?

      Hello there,
      We are still using DMS 2 and were wondering if it was at all compatible with slider revolution. (https://codecanyon.net/item/slider-revolution-responsive-wordpress-plugin/2751380). Our issue is that the default revslider for DMS clips the top and sides of videos when made responsive. As the video is made smaller or larger the bottom of it tends to be cut off, or the sides are. We noticed slider revolution was 100% responsive, but have had numerous issues even getting it to display in DMS 2. We have tried using the shortcode, and various php scripts to no avail. Our last attempt was to try and load it with header scripts, but at this point we seem to be further away than ever. 
      This leads me to a few questions:
      1. Is Slider Revolution even compatible with DMS2?
      2. Is there a way we can get 100% responsive video in DMS 2 with zero clipping? (tonyrobbins.com is another good example of the effect we are trying to achieve.)
      3. If Slider Revolution is compatible, how do we go about adding it in?
       
      Thank you for any help.

      Hi Developers, I wasn’t sure what the best way to get feedback was but didn’t really want to put this in the facebook group, I did put this in the slack developers group but trying to figure out the fastest way to get feedback.  I am starting a new site for a client and was looking through the showcase to see if there were any samples for slider modifications like I am trying to do for our build and couldn’t find them.  Basically I want to have a blue section at the bottom of each slide that has text in it.  The text will change with each slide along with the image.  Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on how this modification could be made?  Here is a sample of the slider from the design.

      Hi, 
      I was wondering if there's a way to modify the slider container size? My client would like it skinner- not as tall. How would you suggest doing that?
      Thank you.
      (this is for the paoloimperiale.com slider on the homepage)

      Hi,
      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:

      Hi,
      I am trying to get the background image of the Revslider to be clickable and redirect to a link.
      Does anyone know how this is possible?
