pagelines dms revslider as full screen background

Recommended Posts

Olivepower
Hello,

I am working in pagelines dms and I would like to put a full screen revslider with multiple images on my home page. I want it to be the background of my home page. I can't figure out where I would put the rev slider to achieve this.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Jen

Hi Jen,

 

The RevSlider can not act as a background for your entire site, it is a full-width section, but if you place other sections beneath it, the RevSlider image or video will display above those sections.

Hi Danny,

Thanks for your reply. I am confused because on the slider revolution features list it states that you can do full screen slider:

General Slider & Editor Capabilities:
All Sizes Possible: Custom, Auto-Responsive, Full-Screen
Variable or Fixed Image Height
Image BG Cover, Contain, Tiling, Alignment, etc. NEW
Custom Image Alt Tag for SEO NEW
WYSIWYG Drag & Drop Editor with “Lock” Feature
Easy Caption Alignment
Published / Unpublished Slides NEW
Lazy Loading for Quicker Slider Start
Set Per Slide Link and Target
Fullscreen YouTube , Vimeo and
Self-Hosted HTML5 Videos
Auto-Start for Videos On / Off
Optional Shadow GFX below Slider

I am not looking to set it up as the background for my entire site, just for my home page.

One more thought... Does the rev slider that comes built into pagelines dms have less features that the al la carte version?

The Slider Revolution isn't the same as RevSlider, RevSlider is based on a jquery script. If you want to use have a background slider for your homepage, you will probably want to use that plugin. Because RevSlider can not use this out of the box and would require extensive customization.

Actually I did buy Slider Revolution.  I guess I assumed they were the same thing.  That being said.  Where do I put it so it appears in the background of the page?  Any section I have tried shows up on the page, not as the background.  I know know to set a background image, just not sure where to put the revolution slider.

I am not sure I have never used the plugin extensively and when I have used it, I only used it as a slider. If this is an option in the plugin itself, you will need to see how you implement it. As I can't see this kind of functionality being included via a shortcode.

It is likely something that has to be implemented via a hook. If you add this functionality as a shortcode, it will only be displayed in the container the shortcode was added too. You're going to need to review the plugins documentation and see how you implement this background feature.

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.
