Meta Slider in blog posts

Hi
How do I get the Meta Slider to show up – just as on the frontpage.
100% wide under the logo above the content – in all of my blog posts?

I want to have the slider on all sub-pages as well.

Tried to copy the php-code for the slider but it just came out boxed.

    Hi Lali

    On each page is a MetaSlider box in the right column. You can select a slider for any page using that drop-down menu.

    Hi Lali

    You could use Page Builder to insert a MetaSlider widget on posts but it wouldn’t be 100%. The only way to have a 100% width slider on posts would be to create a child theme, edit header.php and use PHP to conditionally insert a slider based on whether it was a post or not. There is however at this point no easy way to do this from within Vantage.

      Hi Andrew, I’m having this same issue and it’s very frustrating. I need the slider to appear on all pages, but I can’t figure out how. The pages that are missing the slider call the exact same masthead as the other pages, but somehow it blanks out the slider div. How can we fix this?

      Here is an example of a page where the slider doesn’t appear: http://actwebdesign.com.au/ditchfield-test/news/

      sorry to hijack someone else’s thread, but this seems like the same issue as mine.

        Hi Joey

        Thanks for running Vantage.

        It’s a little different. What you need to do there is change your page template from Blog to Default or Full Width. Then click over to the Page Builder tab and insert a Post Loop widget. That will allow your Meta Slider selection for that page to be loaded.

        For further assistance please open a new thread and I’ll climb in there.

    Hi Andrew, please clarify, I have selected page meta slider on my blog page but no header appears. Can’t this be possible to show? It works on all other pages. Thanks
    I cleared my cache in case this was causing the issue

      Hi TheHip GurusGuide

      What you could try on that page is changing the page template from Blog to Default and then using Page Builder to insert a Post Loop widget. Result should be the same but with a Slider appearing.
