Move Slider to Header Next to Logo

Recommended Posts

Aloha,

 

There are a few solid changes I would like to make on my site and I bet there is an easy way for all of them that don't know about. I'll start with the first: I have a slider (with 4 slides that transition -- each with 5 pics of kids) in my CONTENT section near the top of my site because I like how it takes up only 3/4 of the screen and makes the pics of the kids smaller (I don't like the huge sliders that go clear across the site). However, I want the slider on the same line as my Logo (branding) -- up in the Header. How do I do this? I've seen plugins for putting sliders in headers.... but I also want to make sure my logo can stay to the left, with slider on its right. I configured this slider by going to Page Options>Site Defaults>Quickslider. Is there another way to get the slider up on the top of my site, next to my logo?

 

...I currently have a "Coming Soon" page up, but if anyone needs to see the site, let me know and I will activate the regular site...

 

THANK YOU!

Hi Danny  ~ thanx for your reply. Coming soon disabled. Website: http://www.bigislandmusictherapy.com/   There are several things I need to change so it is very rough, but I just want to focus first on getting that slider up to the right of my logo. 

 

Not sure what you mean by concept image? I drew out a visual.... Is that what you want? Let me see if I can upload something...

How do I upload a pic file to here? Looks like "My Media" requires me to have files already uploaded? But the "Pastebin" with files seems like it's mostly files for everyone's use and viewing (even though I can change the mode to "private")..?

okay... I have to run, but will figure out how to show you a pic of my sketch when I get back home. For now, hopefully my live site can give you an idea: I have the logo on top left, and that slider below it to the right -- but I want the slider RIGHT UP NEXT TO the logo. THANK U FOR YOUR HELP!

Here is a rough sketch of what I want the site to look like: https://www.dropbox.com/s/23kkxovsi1dd8ok/photo.JPG

 

I am using the free version of Pagelines. I have been taking an online course on using wordpress and have checked out the available youtube vides that Pagelines provides, but there are a few basic things I can't quite manage without your help (thank you!). Also, admittedly, I'm still confused about the difference between the sections like  "banners," highlights," "callouts," etc. Maybe there is a way for me to get the slider in the header using one of these? Also, I don't see the "Features" option in my version of Pagelines ... ?

 

So back to my main question: How can I get that slider up next to my logo in the "header"? Is there a trick... a piece of code.. or, should I use a plug in?

OK, so you're using PageLines Framework, to achieve this kind of layout would require extensive CSS, which is something we do not provide support for. However, you could easily achieve this layout in DMS, just by dragging and dropping the sections into place and then reducing the width of each section, so they go on the same row.

And Danny: let me ask you this, please...   even if I can't get the slider in the header in the unpaid version... I don't understand what I CAN add into the header? RIght now there is a bunch of empty space to the right of my branding.    What else am I able to INSERT THERE on this version??? Please help me understand this so I can keep building.... I spent so much time trying to understand the youtube vids and the documents and building what I have so far, only to be deadened now, and I am thinking I may have to switch to another theme, which I don't want to have to do. Thank you for the support..

You're using PageLines Framework, which is a completely separate product to DMS. DMS comes in two versions free and pro version, you can download the free version from WordPress.org.

 

In PageLines Framework, there was a section called Branding, this section did two things, it displayed your sites logo image (on the left) and on the right, it displayed social media network logos/icons. In order for these to display you had to configure them in the Branding section options. So if you're not seeing any icons, you haven't configured them.

 

PageLines Framework has multiple sections that can be placed inside the header, you're not restricted to one section only, you can see all the sections available for the header template area, by going to the options in the backend and dragging and dropping, the section into the header template.

Thanks for your reply. The thing with drag-dropping into the header is it only lets me drag items UNDERNEATH each other so, like u said, is it only the social icons that would appear to the right of my branding, once I configure?

And regarding DMS: if I go download that (the free version), will I have more options than with Framework?

You will have more options than PageLines Framework, for example you can easily add multiple sections into one row by reducing their widths. The pro version comes with tons more sections and more options available, you can find more information here - http://www.pagelines.com/shop/core/dms/

 

The free version is available here - http://wordpress.org/themes/dms

Hi Danny.... okay, I downloaded DMS 2 (free version). And now everything seems so new with so many options that I'm not sure where to start..... I'll have to sit down and try to figure out how it all works (yikes... just when I thought I had a handle on Framework, lol)

hehe, yeah it can be intimating at first, especially coming from PageLines Framework, but I am confident you will get the hang of it in no time and then wonder how you ever used a different theme. Just stick with it and you will see how awesome it is, to create your layout while you're looking at it :D

Danny, et. al....  can I get some links to websites built with DMS 2? Preferably on the pro version so I know my limits, but either way.....   thank u :] <----  not sure how delete this post, so I'll just add: that I'll start asking my questions in the DMS free version, since this forum is for Framework, I think?

      Hello,
      I have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      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 all, I have some trouble using PL5 on my site. 
      I used plugins for event calendar (event on) and plugin (timetable responsive scheduler for WP) for schedule (classes) in the gym.
      The problem is, that post from this 2 plugins are shown without menu in header and footer. (I setup header and footer) in the page editor for all type of page. 
      When I create a lesson, it creates posts with slug (I have a slug "lekce" & event for events).
      I try to edit the post with PL editor, but editor is not opening on the post.

      Do you have some idea where should be some problem? Thanx so much.
      here are links for the sites :
      site with schedule :
      http://www.myfit.cz/rozvrh/
      site of one of the class (pilates)
      http://www.myfit.cz/lekce/pilates/
      site with calendar :
      http://www.myfit.cz/kalendar/
      7 side with one event from the calendar :
      http://www.myfit.cz/event/pilates-instruktor-akreditovana-licence/?ri=1
      when I have my site on DMS2 it was working :-(
