How do a make the Genesis – Responsive Slider full width in the Lifestyle Pro theme?http://bassanglerhq.com/battlefieldbass/
Thank You, SteveOctober 16, 2013 at 9:06 pm #67102
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?October 25, 2013 at 7:23 am #68821October 25, 2013 at 8:15 am #68828
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?October 25, 2013 at 3:35 pm #68936
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/November 5, 2013 at 8:48 pm #71177
@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.

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.

@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?November 6, 2013 at 11:04 am #71272
Also, in most cases, I’m using the slider to display images associated to a post.November 6, 2013 at 12:38 pm #71288
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.November 6, 2013 at 1:54 pm #71303
