Replacing Meta Slider with Layout Builder?

Hi there,
Out of interest, is there an easy way to replace the main meta slider with the (in my opinion) much more powerful Layout Builder? Or could you give the option to choose which system is best for the site?

Either way, this would be EXCELLENT :D

    Hi Leigh

    On your home page, you’re welcome to build your first row using the Layout Builder, we can then assist with Custom CSS to remove the space below the menu, leaving you with a similar result.

    You can set any row to full width stretched by editing the row and clicking Layout > Row Layout.

    That would be wicked if you could :D

    Oh, and would it be possible for the layout to be changed JUST on the home page?
    Thank you very much in advance :D

    Hi Leigh

    At AppearanceTheme SettingsHome, set your home slider to none. Then in your home page, insert a new row at the top of the page and set the Row Layout to Full Width Stretched. You can change the row layout by clicking the wrench icon on the far right of the row to edit it, then LayoutRow Layout. This is assuming you want it to be full width like the slider.

    Great thanks!

    How do I remove to space between the first row and menu, like the slider? Just on the homepage though?

    Hi Leigh

    You can fix/change this with some custom CSS. If you navigate to AppearanceCustom CSS, you’ll get our custom CSS editor. Just add the following code.

    .home #main {
    	padding-top: 0;
    .home .panel-grid:first-of-type .panel-row-style-full-width[style] {
    	padding-top: 0 !important;

    You might also need to install the SiteOrigin CSS Editor.
