Popup Slideshow?

Hope O Kiah created the topic: Popup Slideshow?

Greetings,
We want to create slideshows that pop up into wider sizes than the width of the Wordpress content area. We can't use full-width templates because we need the sidebar and we need the slideshows to be part of long pages of content. Is it possible to make the slideshow pop up over the content?
thanks,
Hope

Dear Hope,

Please add your slider to header.php file of your theme. You need to call it with its PHP function, you can see them next to shortcodes in Slider WD backend. Here's an example:

<?php wd_slider(1); ?>

Thank you.

Thanks. I see what you mean. The one slider shows up on every page. But we need many sliders embedded in many pages, often more than one per page. Any advice for displaying them wider than the content area, without choosing full width?

Dear Hope,

You can detect the URL of the page with if statement and place your sliders depending on that. Here's a code example:

<?php
if (isset($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) && strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'url_title') !== FALSE) {
 wd_slider(6);
}
?>
<?php
if (isset($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) && strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'url_title') !== FALSE) {
 wd_slider(1);
}
elseif (isset($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) && strpos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], 'url_title') !== FALSE) {
 wd_slider(9);
}
?>

Please be careful with PHP brackets. But if you need to have full width sliders not only in header, but among the content as well, unfortunately your theme needs to allow fullscreen blocks. this should be possible by editing page.php or single.php files. Please ask your theme developers for guidance in that aspect.

Thank you.
