    Hi, I’m using a slider plugin (royalslider but I’m open to suggestions of others) and I’m trying to use it as a full screen – full browser window slideshow that is responsive. I’m using the executive theme. Do I need to set up a new page template? If so, how? I’d like it to fill the entire browser window and show behind the header / logo / footer and nav. Thanks!

    Thanks Brad! Close.
    Basically I’ll be adding RoyalSlider (http://codecanyon.net/item/royalslider-touch-content-slider-for-wordpress/700256)
    to a page and would like it to show like your background image (http://bradpotter.com/themes/minimum/).
    So I guess page content would be
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    But it would have to stay behind the footer, nav and footer.
    Does this make sense?

    Hard to test that as its a premium third party script.

    I would ask Brad Potter how he did it but i do know its been done using Backstretch.

    I’m not necessarily set on that slider.
    What if, for example, I just wanted my page content to fill 100% width and height
    and the remaining elements stay as they are naturally (nav, header, footer).
    Thanks Brad!

    Anythings possible however you can easily add a full width background image. If you want it to slide, that’s also possible.

    I just thought of something. Instead of focusing on the page content, what if I fixed the position of the header and footer? so the content naturally resides beneath? I appreciate your help Brad.

    If that one wouldn’t do for some reason, try : http://wordpress.org/plugins/vegas-fullscreen-background-slider/ :)
