    Hello there,

    Okay I follow the instructions of the last post I did about putting a video next to the slider. I was given this tutorial: (http://wpsites.net/web-design/move-call-to-action-next-to-slider-in-executive-pro-theme/)

    I think it worked but now the theme is a little off, The “Home – Call to Action” widget is in the slider and it should be between the widgets “Home -Top” and “Home -Middle”.

    Also, I don’t get how to put a video in the box next to the slider.

    Can you help? Is there something I forgot?

    Thank you very much,
    Christine

    If the directions were to add a widget area next to the slider, you would use a widget and place it in that CTA area as described in his instructions. For example, you would place a Youtube video embed code in a text box in that CTA area.

    Call me dumb or whatever … but what does CTA stand for? … I saw that in the instructions but didn’t know what it stood for and I guess I somehow didn’t get it …

    So placing the YouTube video embed code I guess I just don’t know where the actual widget is to place it. When I open up the widget area in my WordPress admin, I see the “Home – Slider” but not the CTA.

    So please if you could just let me know where to place that code or where the CTA is I would be grateful.

    Thank you so much for your service,
    Christine

    CTA = Call to Action – just a way to single out something you want people to see immediately and take action on. Look for the Text Widget. Drag it over to that area – paste in the Youtube embed code. Save it. Then look at the site.

    Oh … Thank you so much … that was not in the instructions you explained it perfectly.

    I’m going to try it right now.

    Okay … now it is not aligning to the right … it works but it is not aligning … is there something I need add to the text?

    I think you have it in the wrong area. Drag it to the Home CTA widget area, not the slider widget.

    Re-review his code. Something isn’t set right. The slider should be floating left and the new CTA widget should float right. Look at his code and look at what you’ve added to your theme.

    Yes, or you can send me a message on my website. That will be the fastest way for me to take a look.
