Hello, thank you for your reply. Yes you are correct, that is what I am anting to do, I al using Alula and would like images right across the page.
I have looked at those tutorials you suggested. I have some option missing from my page editing options. Below the Sidebar Settings Meta Box there is no option to assign sidebars. I have a dropdown box entitled “WordPress SEO by Yoast”.
I have tested out the Flexslider in the footer widget column 1 and it works perfectly. I am just having problem moving it to the front page. When I do so all I get it a grey bog with “Blog” in it.
