Ethos main post slider to be smaller with sidebar

Is it possible to have the main post slider smaller so that the sidebar can fit on the right hand side inline with the slider?

Hi Tony,

Thank you for writing in, yes that is possible with custom template. To do this, first please setup a child theme

And then on your child theme navigate to this directory: \x-child\framework\views\ethos\ create it if the path/folder does not exist.

On that directory create a file named: wp-index.php and paste the codes below on it.


// =============================================================================
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Index page output for Ethos.
// =============================================================================

$is_filterable_index = is_home() && x_get_option( 'x_ethos_filterable_index_enable' ) == '1';



  <div class="x-container max width main">

    <div class="offset cf">
      <div class="<?php x_main_content_class(); ?>" role="main">
<?php x_get_view( 'ethos', '_post', 'slider' ); ?>
        <?php if ( $is_filterable_index ) : ?>
          <?php x_get_view( 'ethos', '_index' ); ?>
        <?php else : ?>
          <?php x_get_view( 'global', '_index' ); ?>
        <?php endif; ?>


      <?php get_sidebar(); ?>


<?php get_footer(); ?>

Then lastly, add this to Theme Options > CSS

@media (min-width: 768px) {
	.x-post-slider-entry>a {
	  position: relative !important;
	  min-height: 425px;
	  display: flex;
	  justify-content: center;
	  align-items: center;

Please understand that this is now in the realm of custom development, further modification from here will not be supported.

Thank you for understanding,

Thanks so much! This has now solved my query :smiley:
