You can place the slider in different positions on the page depending on how you set it up. Assigning the slider by page options versus using the slider shortcode will place the slider in a totally different position on the page. In addition, we offer an option to position a slider that is assigned through page options either above or below the header, and also note that the header can be set to be transparent. All of this affects where the slider is positioned.
Positioning the Slider by Page Options
By assigning the slider via page options, the slider position will always be underneath the header, and the top of it will align with the main menu dropdown. There will be no extra page content or padding which will interfere with the slider position when assigned via page options.
Positioning the Slider by Shortcode
By placing slider by shortcode on a page or post, it will always be positioned where you place it in the post content field. Which makes this a perfect method for when you do not want the slider directly above or below the header; but somewhere further down the page. When you place the slider shortcode at the top of a post content field, it will have the page top padding added to it, which is set to 55px by default. When content is added to the post content field it will have page padding applied. The page padding can either be adjusted globally in theme options, or on an individual basis per page or post in the page options box.
