Assigning a slider via Fusion Page Options versus using a Slider Shortcode will place the slider in a different position on the page. In addition, Avada offers an option to position an assigned slider via Fusion Page Options either above or below the header, and the header can be set to be transparent. You can also set a global position for Sliders in Fusion Theme Options.
Slider Position Above or Below Header
You can choose to have the slider sit above the header, or below the header. This option is called ‘Slider Position’ and can be found in Fusion Themes Options and Fusion Page Options. To set it globally for all sliders, use the Fusion Theme Options. If you’d like to set individual slider positions for each page or post, then use the Fusion Page Options. Continue reading below for more in depth information.
Slider Position Assigned Via Fusion Theme Options
All assigned sliders on pages or posts will always follow the Slider Position set in Fusion Theme Options located under the Avada > Theme Options > Header > Header Content sub-panel. To set the Slider Position individually for each page or post, you can do so using the Fusion Page Options located on each page or post you create.
Slider Position Assigned Via Fusion Page Options
By default, when you assign a slider via Fusion Page Options, the slider position will always follow the position set in Fusion Theme Options. To change the slider position for individual pages or posts, find the ‘Slider Position’ option under the Fusion Page Options > Sliders and choose a different setting other than Default.
Slider Position Assigned Via Shortcode
When you insert a Slider Shortcode on a page or post, the slider will always be positioned where you place it in the post content field. This is best for when you want the slider further down the page. If you place the slider shortcode at the top of the post content field, it will have the page content top padding added to it, which is set to 55px by default. The page content top padding can be adjusted globally in Fusion Theme Options or individually in the Fusion Page Options box.
Slider Position When Using A Transparent Header
When assigning a slider to a page or post via the Fusion Page Options box, you can choose to make your header transparent. If you add any value of opacity to your header, the slider will be moved up to the top most part of the page and will be positioned behind the header. Most likely, you may need to adjust your slider height to accommodate the transparent header. This option works best with our default Header Layout #1. Read more about Header Transparency here.
