About Theme Layouts
The theme’s layouts are broken into sections: header, footer and full “layouts”. Headers and footers are created independently and selected when you create a new layout. You can assign any header or footer to a layout. You can also select an alternate skin for a layout that is different from the skin being used for the rest of your website.
Content structures are created with a drag-and-drop interface. Create the column structure you need then assign content to the columns by dragging the page elements into place. Content can be included from any sidebar, page or the current page/post default content.

Make slide shows to include into the header of layouts and directly into content as shortcodes. Slides may contain images, videos, static content and any HTML output you choose.
- Add slide shows to the header of any layout.
- Use content from images, videos or HTML code.
- Link slides to any page, post or URL of your choice.
- Open links in a new window.

A complete list of all shortcode parameters is available on the slide show shortcode page.
Slide Show Usage
Once a slide show is created it can be included into any header, which in turn can be used with any layout. This makes it possible to have a slide show at the top of any page, post or even give the effect of simulating multiple home pages.
A slide show can also be included directly into the content of a page using the shortcode method:
Basic Slide Show Shortcode
[slideshow alias="slide-show-alias" ].
The only requirement for adding a slide show using the shortcode method is to specify the alias of the specific slide show to be displayed. Other attributes such as width and height may be optionally included as well.
