Hi guys, I'm having a lot of trouble with my content section, trying to figure out if I can put full width content (or close to it) above the sidebars because whenever I add sidebars they take up the whole side and won't sit under anything else unless it is in the header...I have attached a photo of what I am trying to achieve..

Hi,

 

Can you upload this image please, as I am not entirely sure what it is you're trying to do. Also, please be aware that Platform Pro is a legacy product and therefore, I recommend you upgrade to DMS.

Hi Danny. Sorry Ill attach it again. WIth regards to DMS-I've looked into it but it is hard for me to know what DMS can and cant do without purchasing it...I have a very limited budget as well so just not sure if it will do what I want it to...love to hear your thoughts though...thanks.

From what I can remember regarding Platform Pro you'd need to put the slider in the header area below your nav and other header items to get that effect.

 

You can take a free test drive of DMS from the demo, it lets you set up a site for 30 days so you can try out all the features - http://themes.pagelines.com/dms/?dobar=1 scroll down below the slider and a sign up pops up.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hey, something else I noticed-on the dms 2 page down the very bottom under the heading "about pagelines dms 2 demo" is a bunch of lorem ipsum-probably good to get that fixed.

Lorem ipsum text is there on purpose, it is placeholder text and is used in all kinds of publishing and graphic design, including web design/development when showcasing a demo.

Yeah I know though It's normally used as a filler not used for describing your actual product...

Yes, but that is a demo of PageLines DMS, that is why there is placeholder text. Most theme or web developers do not add theme or company specific information to all their demos elements. It's for that reason why there are so many lorem ipsum generators, as the text is used so frequently by web developers.

      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?
