    I’m using GP Premium and Elementor Pro.

    I’ve hit a brick wall in Elementor’s functionality and I’m wondering if I can achieve my goals in GP.

    Essentially, I want to have a full screen slider carousel (mixed video and image content) at the top of each of my posts. Each post will have a different gallery, with a different selection of images.

    I can build the template in Elementor, but I cannot edit the slider within the template.

    SO……. is it possible to introduce in some way a shortcode field at the top of all my product pages, underneath the navigation but above the Elementor single post template.

    In essence I want to make my page like the GP ‘Sections’ functionality but using Elemnentor. So the resulting sinlge post would look this this:

    SECTION 1: WordPress shortcode widget
    SECTION 2: Elementor Single Post Template

    This way, my posts can be populate dynamically, but I can also add unique information in the shortcode area.

    Sorry is this is a newb/obvious question – just trying to find the right tools for the job!

    Hi there,

    You would need a Slider that can support dynamic content. Smart Slider 3 can work with ACF (Advanced Custom Fields) to do that, there are other solutions though.

    Alternatively it would require coding, something which one of our GP Facebook community users posted about.
