    Would it be possible to add a slider above the Main Menu, so change the position of the Main Menu?


    Hey enzowillemstad,

    Yes it’s possible however you need to do the following first:

    1. Use a child theme: https://kriesi.at/documentation/enfold/how-to-install-enfold-theme/#why-child-theme
    2. Enable Avia Layout Debugger: https://kriesi.at/documentation/enfold/intro-to-advanced-layout-builder/#debug-mode
    3. Create a new page and setup the slider (the page should only contain the slider), below the content the shortcode for the slider should appear, copy it
    4. Copy header.php and insert the shortcode in after this code
      <div id='wrap_all'>

    You would need to use do_shortcode in order to run the shortcode, for more information check: https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/do_shortcode/
    Hope this helps :)

    Best regards,


    Thanks for the response. Everything looks clear and logical, but for some reason I can’t seem to get do_shortcode to work. When I add the following code to header.php:

    echo do_shortcode('[av_layerslider av_uid='av-tyxz' id='1']');

    This tekst is shown above the main menu. So the rest works, but I need to show the shortcode differently. When I add the following code. the entire page will not show.

    <?php echo do_shortcode('[av_layerslider av_uid='av-tyxz' id='1']'); ?>

    Probably because the shortcode itself contains several: ‘

    So I’m missing something, but I’m not sure what.


    Hi enzowillemstad,

    Yes that’s right you need to use double quotes to wrap the shortcode if the shortcode contains single quotes or vice versa, this code will work:

    <?php echo do_shortcode("[av_layerslider av_uid='av-tyxz' id='1']"); ?>

    Also just to note, this type of change will cause some issues with sticky header, so I suggest not using it.

    Best regards,


    Aha, yes that makes sense.

    For some reason it will not show on the homepage and test page. But it does show on the page I created for the header:

    Perhaps the body background image is in front of the slider?


    No, it’s not because of the background image. Not sure why the slider will not show on the pages, only the same page as the slider is loaded via the builder the slider is shown.

    Any ideas?

    Hi enzowillemstad,

    Please post us your login credentials (in the “private data” field), so we can take a look at your backend.

    1. Install and activate ” Temporary Login Without Password “.
    2. Go to ” Users > Temporary Logins ” on the left-side menu.
    3. Click ” Create New “.
    4. Add the email address for the account ( you can use (Email address hidden if logged out) ), as well as the ” Role ” making that the highest possible and the expiry about four days
      ( do be sure that we have enough time to debug ).
    5. Click ” Submit “.
    6. You’ll now have a temporary account. Please provide us here in the private section the URL, so we can login and help you out.

    When your issue is fixed, you can always remove the plugin!
    If you prefer to not use the plugin, you can manually create a admin user and post the login credentials in the “private data” field.

    Best regards,


    I’ve created a user see login credentials in the private section.
    Thanks in advance!


    Hi enzowillemstad,

    I have checked on this however, the bundled layerslider only loads properly if added via ALB and takes a lot of time to make it work just by using shortcodes and outside the scope of our support. Would it be okay to use other sliders instead?

    Best regards,


    Ok. Not sure wat ALB is, but no problem I can create a slider in another slider plugin.
    Thanks for your help.
    You guys are by far the best theme-support!


    It works perfect with other slider, thanks so much! Again: you guys are awesome!



    Glad we could help!
