How to set up Slideshow like in the demo site


1. Install and activate iThemes Slideshow plugin.

2. Go to DisplayBuddy -> Slideshow in WP dashboard. Create a new group named say, "Front Page Slider".

Use the following settings:


Upload your images.

3. Copy shortcode to display this slideshow. Ex.: [pb_slideshow group="0"]

4. Edit the layout(s) in which you want the slideshow to appear (typically this will be the layout set aside for front page), add a HTML module and paste the Slideshow shortcode in the text area. Save the layout(s).

5. Add the following at the end of child theme's style.css:

/** making the Nivo Slider from Slideshow look more like the theme */
.builder-module .nivoSlider {
	margin-left: 0;
	margin-bottom: 0 !important;
.builder-module .nivo-controlNav {
    margin-right: -260px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 0;
    top: 0;
    width: 260px !important;
    text-align: center;
    z-index: 0;
.builder-module .nivo-controlNav img {
    display: block;
    margin-right: 0;
    vertical-align: top;
.builder-module-3 .builder-module-element {
	box-shadow: #C5C1AF 10px 10px, #FFF9E2 -10px -10px;

In the above, change "3" in ".builder-module-3" to the position of HTML module having the slideshow from top.

If Slideshow is not being used in all the layouts, replace ".builder-module-3" with the ID of the HTML module in which we placed the Slideshow. Ex.: "#builder-module-4eb9ec0eb3ede". See this for more info.
