Sure I’d be happy to help, but you’ll need to create separate threads for each question/issue. They have a “One question per thread policy” to keep everything organized here in the forums – http://appfinite.com/topic/forum-rules/. So please create a separate thread for any other questions you have and we can get right to it.
For the slider question – One of the widget areas are for those that need a full width widget area. The other widget area “Slider” is 1140px.
