This is further to post:
I try to set up a Layer Slider but I see no top widget area where I could add it. So I wonder how can it be added on top of pages for home page or for whole site. I know can add it to specific page via Page Options/Slider Options.

Yes, I can make it work for a specific page, the question is whether I can make it work (and how) sitewide.RomanKeymasterDecember 14, 2013 at 9:03 pmPost count: 2538Been thanked: 29 times
sorry, at this moment is not possible to make a site wide functionality for Layer Slider. only by editing the theme code which we dont support in the support forumsSpiros DoikasSpectatorDecember 14, 2013 at 9:07 pmPost count: 49Been thanked: 0 times

sorry, but all sliders work only for specific pagesSpiros DoikasSpectatorDecember 14, 2013 at 9:38 pmPost count: 49Been thanked: 0 times
Hmm, maybe that should be a feature you should consider for a future release. I guess it is just a matter of adding a top widget area, not really much work.RomanKeymasterDecember 14, 2013 at 9:56 pmPost count: 2538Been thanked: 29 times

I just wanted to share – that this should be clearly written on the demo page. In my case, I added it site wide but there are many features such as this that are (in practice) severely limited. And should be properly communicated with people prior to purchase.
In fairness, you have to expect some sites to use a slider site wide, which shows the demo is very misleading. Especially when you consider some of the advertised backgrounds and features are not available without additional installations + purchases. it has not been the experience we were advertised.
With that said, future people who bought this theme expecting these features, you can manually add the slider to the header file.
Example for adding it just to the homepage via header modification: (not supported, but needed by most people who buy the theme, and not explained at time of purchase):
<?php putRevSlider(“slider1″,”homepage”) ?>
Where “slider 1” is the slider, and “homepage” is a sequential page listRomanKeymasterDecember 27, 2013 at 10:54 amPost count: 2538Been thanked: 29 times
@lloyd all the sliders which are included are standalone plugins and they have their respective docs so it has no value to rewrite them here. unfortunately, there will be always some users which want more than standard users and so there will be always problems. you should realize that we offer a solid theme for 2/3 price of a similar theme ($65) on other websites, which include a lot of features and functionality, and if it’s missing something what you need(needed), then sorry, but it’s coded as it is.Lloyd SummersSpectatorJanuary 2, 2014 at 6:49 amPost count: 5Been thanked: 0 timesQuote:Quote from Roman on December 27, 2013, 10:54

I’m sure they do have their own respective documents buried somewhere. However, I did not install the plugins, I installed your theme which chose to have a dependency on those plugins, which assumes a level of support by connection. Additionally, the price of a different companies theme should not dictate the amount of support you feel like providing for your own companies theme – that comes across as an excuse. If a different theme provides better support and better customizations and documentation then maybe I should be using their themes.
It is clearly missing many customizations that were shown in the demo version. This was a marketing decision by Theme4Press, not by me, and I feel it is misleading. Telling me to suck it up and accept that the theme is inferior to what was promised, is not a good way to set expectations.
With that said, I’m not intending to complain – I made the short-sighted decision to purchase the theme with the information I was provided. Its up to you to decide if you feel there is value in a customer that is moving on to a different theme because of a lack of parity with what was presented in the demo versus the actual theme. If you disagree that it is misleading, and choose not to follow up on my experience, that’s up to you to decide – theme4press is not my brand to maintain.
