Adding a full bleed slideshow on homepage (including header)

Go to solution Solved by Ziggy,

Recommended Posts

Hey friends! 🙂

What is the best way to add a slideshow to the homepage opening? I need it to be the first thing you see when you go to the site. Full bleed and for it to also be the background for the header (navigation + logo etc).

I would provide the URL, but I've literally only started it today so it's just the template (Lusaka)

Thank you in advance.

If you add a gallery section at the top of the homepage and height set to L, that should get you what you want. You'll also want to set the header style to dynamic.

Slideshow: Full - A full-bleed slideshow that displays one image at a time

Let me know if that was helpful and how you get on.

You just need this Custom CSS, replace the first bit with the section ID from your website:

section[data-section-id="639cd4110c46e15d382e602a"] {
  padding-top:0px !important; 
}

Find the section ID like this:
