    I started using Page Builder by SiteOrigin and have to say it is really working out well for what I am trying to achieve on a site I am building. On the front or home page I currently have the Full Width Slider that comes with BuddyBoss (however I have sized it down and styled it) and a 3-column layout. A left sidebar, the main content, and a right sidebar (this is a static home page and does not have recent posts in it). What I want to do is create the same layout using Page Builder instead but am not sure how to get the Full Width Slider on the page since it really isn't a widget. There is also no shortcode for it. I have been to the SiteOrigin site to see if I could look for help there but couldn't find anything about their slider widget or how to add another slider. BTW, just so you know, @tjchester, I have decided to keep the slider in the main area and not put it in the header! 😉 Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.



    I thought I had figured it out. All I needed to do was keep it as front-page template and just add a row with 3 even columns and the slider would still be there. However, the columns are now screwed up. They are very narrow and floating to the left. I don't have sidebars for the front page now.

    <?php if ( is_active_sidebar('home-left') && is_active_sidebar('home-right') ) : ?>
    	<div class="page-three-columns">
    <?php elseif ( is_active_sidebar('home-left') && !is_active_sidebar('home-right') ) : ?>
    	<div class="page-left-sidebar">
    <?php elseif ( !is_active_sidebar('home-left') && is_active_sidebar('home-right') ) : ?>
    	<div class="page-right-sidebar">
    <?php else : ?>
    	<div class="page-full-width">
    <?php endif; ?>

    Since I don't have the left and right home-page sidebars, it should default to page-full-width, correct? I don't know what is going on.


    I figured it out. I had tried to add a frame for the content in the page-fullwidth.php page and had accidently left a floating </div>. It works now!

    Glad you figure this out.
