Sidebar on top of full screen slider (desperate)

first post so please go easy with me,

I want to put header, sidebar, and possibly footer over the top of my fullscreen slider. so that the full screen slider is full background can anyone point to me what I doing wrong. before the wife kills me for spending too much time trying to figure this out.

<?php wp_head(); ?>

<style type=“text/css”>
html, body {
margin:0 !important;
padding:0 !important;


<body bgcolor=“#cccccc”>
<?php get_header(); ?>
<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
<?php if(have_posts()) : while(have_posts()) : the_post(); the_content(); endwhile; endif; ?>
<?php get_footer(); ?>


any help greatly appreciated

any suggestions good or bad ?
I wondered if I need to make a separate file with slider and header sidebar and footer combined combined somehow with using z-index to layer/stack correctly

any thoughts

Hi bronking. Welcome to the forums. :slight_smile:

It’s hard to adapt something like that for a different purpose. I recommend you check out something like Supersized, a free script that is designed to do what you want out of the box.

thanks for reply ralph

the wordpress theme already has a supersized slider but I’de rather have the zoom in out one I just thought it would be easy (obviously not) to change slider to the one I want.

I’ll keep trying (as its becoming an obsession now LOL)

if anybody has any suggestions how to keep the zoom in out slider they will be greatly recieved
