I need to do a site similar to this one: http://astrologyboulevard.com/
What I need isn’t this busy but the full screen horizontal boxes and maybe a looping movie in one of them is all I need. The other thing I need is the sections with 3 boxes side by side in one of them…
What’s the best way to go about this? Is there basic templates someplace or do you just start building?
it’s been awhile since I worked with the theme and not up to speed.

You can do video backgrounds using the Page Header add-on.
However, doing it globally in the site header would likely require some custom coding.
The sections can be accomplished using our Sections add-on, and columns using a plugin like this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/lightweight-grid-columns/
Alternatively, you could look into using a page builder like Beaver Builder or Elementor.May 1, 2017 at 10:28 am #312618Gary L
Hey Thanks…I swear you guys have the fastest support on the net!
I’ll check the page header add on out… I don’t need the .mp4 on every page
I think I have Eliminator… with that said…I’m going to be driving ppc to one page on the site, would eliminator slow things down a bit?
I know your theme doesn’t, one reason I bought it.

I got it to do what I wanted with your first suggestion “sections”. I don’t need eliminator.
On the sections that I would like to try an image, if I’m set to full width, is there anything I can do to make the background pic load fast or is 1 background pic that is at 100% width of a section going to slow loading times
down a bit?

Hi…on the astrology site above…using the lightweight grid columns plugin for the 3 boxes.
I need to have at least a hyperlink button that sits with a pic and text in each column between the shortcodes brackets.
Is there an example of how to do this somewhere so it’s neat and lined up?

If you’re able to use Sections then that’s great – definitely a much lighter solution.
For the image, I suggest optimizing it before uploading it using a tool like this: http://optimizilla.com/
You should just be able to insert your image, text and button as usual, just inside the column shortcode. Can you show me what you have so far?
