how can I get the slider (Layer Slider WP) on every page of the website?
You could add a widget area and hook it into whatever place you want it to show. Here is an example tutorial on how to create a widget area under the nav (of course you can move this wherever you want) – http://www.carriedils.com/add-widget-area-below-nav/
Hey Eric, thanks for your reply.
I would like to put the slider on the same place as on the homepage. Is this possible?
Yes, you would need to look in your home.php file and copy the code, and then remove it and add it to your functions file. You could probably just follow that tutorial above to see how it works, and change the widget to match the same widget name as the slider on your home.php file. Then that way all you have to do is add the code in the functions file and change the name to slider. Does that make sense?
It didn’t work our for me, I’m good with coding. I found also something interesting:
There is a special page name, the “homepage”, with you can filter LayerSlider WP to display the slider on your home page. It is also works if you set up a static custom page instead of the default post listing.
The follwing examples are all valid, you can use either of these, you can even mix them on your own needs:
<?php layerslider(1); ?> // Displays the first slider on every page
<?php layerslider(1, ‘homepage’); ?> // Displays the first slider only on your home page
<?php layerslider(1, ‘my-custom-post-title’); ?> // Displays the first slider on a custom page by name
<?php layerslider(2, ‘1369’); ?> // Diplays the second slider on a custom page by ID
<?php layerslider(3, ‘homepage,about-us,1234’); ?> // Displays the third slider on multiple pages
It is important when you want to insert a slider to check its ID on the LayerSlider WP slider list page. When you removes some sliders, their IDs won’t be reindexed and the sequence may broke up. This is important to keep persistent your sliders preventing unwanted changes on the already inserted ones.
Can you help me out?
Ok, let me explain in a different way, first follow that tutorial that I linked to above, and name it slider2 or whatever you want. Then once you create that widget, add the slider inside and it will show up on every page…..then leave the original slider (that came with the theme) empty since you won’t need to use it.
The other part that you posted (which I’m guessing is some type of documentation or tutorial from the developers of the Layer Slider) won’t be needed for this. Simply create a new widget from the tutorial, and then add the slider inside. No other code will be needed.
