    This is a better way to do it in my opinion as the slider is hooked in directly rather than using a widget http://wpsites.net/best-plugins/installing-full-width-responsive-slider/

    Thanks braddalton and I’m looking into that plug-in. But I’m already familiar with the Genesis Slider, how it works, etc. Can you help with my original question?
    How do a make the Genesis – Responsive Slider full width in the Lifestyle Pro theme as a widget?

    Please copy the code from the view raw link and paste it at the end of your child themes functions.php file using a text editor like Notepad++.

    Sorry about the delay in response.
    I would like to have in Home – Top. Or just create another widget area.
    But I do recall in the previous version of Lifestyle, I had to add some code somewhere else in the functions file.
    Does this help?

    Don’t I also have to add some code elsewhere in order to see the widget area in the dashboard?

    I added the code you supplied to another site (same theme, etc.), see the widget area in the dashboard, added the Genesis – Responsive Slider to that widget area, changed the slider settings to the correct dimensions, but it isn’t showing on the home page. http://stevenlatinofishing.com/

    @braddalton I went with the standard slider position on the Stevenlatino site. But know I’m working on another that I’d really like to use a full-width slider.

    I’ve added the code you supplied to another site (same theme, etc.), see the widget area in the dashboard, added the Genesis – Responsive Slider to that widget area, changed the slider settings to the correct dimensions, but it isn’t showing on the home page.

    Do you see the markup for <div class="full-width" class="widget-area"> in your source?

    If not, you may need to tweak your conditional checks, as it is a sign the test fails and doesn’t actually output the widget. Perhaps is_home() instead of is_front_page()

    If you do see the markup something else is wrong with the slider itself. You’ve probably checked, but just make sure you are telling the slider to actually display something.

    I can second Brad’s advice of using Soliloquy though, it is a fantastic plugin. I’m actually using it for a full width / size landing slider and it is fast as could be.

    I would recommend Soliloquy and hook it in directly as it loads faster that way.

    @braddalton I looked into that just a little and it looks like a great plugin. But I dont know how to “hook it in directly”. Also, can it be configured to automatically use the Featured image or will I have to copy and paste code like I used for the Dynamic Content Gallery?

    Also, in most cases, I’m using the slider to display images associated to a post.

    I’ve checked & double checked, I’ve copied & pasted the code as suggested.
    @coralseait I’ve checked and the code is in the markup.
    But still not displaying full-width.

    Are your images big enough for full width and do you have CSS appropriate for full width (ie the class and / or container / structural wrap are set width 100%) ?
