Hi, as some of you may already know I am new to lifestyle theme, I would like to find out if I can insert a slider in the header of my humble website at http://www.101stressfreeliving.com. When I look at the widget area, I don't see any "header" option on the right side of the screen for me to insert the slider. It only shows a "header right" whereby the position is slightly out from below where the header is. Does the lifestyle theme allow me to insert a header slider? Does it happen to other child theme as well?
Thanks in advance and Merry X'mas!December 25, 2012 at 11:53 am #7375
The Header Right Position is located in the right side of your Header Image. If you place content in Header Right, it will overlay your Header Image. There isn't a particular widget area for a slider. Where do you want to place the slider? On the left above your content or in the sidebar on the right.
If you want it to be located above the content on the left - follow these instructions - http://www.briangardner.com/home-widget-area-eleven40/. It will create a new widget area for you.
For the footers -
Go to Function.php and look for this: change the 3 to a 1 - and then save it.
/** Add support for 3-column footer widgets */
add_theme_support( 'genesis-footer-widgets', 3 );
Then - go to Style.css, and find this: change the width to about 900px and it will stretch across.
padding: 0 20px 0 0;
Merry Christmas to you too!

Hi, anitac. Just to sidetrack a bit. Before I mess things up in the function.php and css which i did previously, is there a way which I can back up the two to my host server? Actually I am not confident to handle function.php yet so I thought of backing up the original before making any changes there. Thanks.December 26, 2012 at 5:40 am #7449
Yes, you can save both back to your desktop - just use the FTP that your host provides you or you can use Filezilla. If you haven't edited those files before - keep in mind that if you still have the original files that you purchased, i.e., the Zip file - there is also a backup copy inside there. A lot of people forget that they get a copy from their Zip file.

Hi anitac. Thanks for the reminder! I've forgotten about it...Btw, if you don't mind me asking another question. I copied and uploaded my amended style.css to my "wp-admin" directory instead to the "theme" directory in my host server. So I did mess things up here as the appearance of my dashboard area in my wordpress changes look. So can I use the original file in the zip file to upload the style.css into the host server (that is, into my "wp-admin" directory) to restore the appearance? Does it also affect other settings in my wordpress. Sorry gotta sidetrack abit...thanks for understanding..
