X child theme

⚠️ Warning: To be able to follow the steps of this tutorial, you are required you to have coding knowledge. Regretfully we can't provide support for custom coding. If you can't achieve what you are looking for or if you're not sure how to follow the instructions, hire a developer. We are also unable to provide support for problems happening because of custom codes.

This documentation can help you put a slider under the menu of the X theme.

1
Go to the FTP of your website and create a child folder

/wp-content/themes/x-child/

2
Create a style.css file in this folder

/wp-content/themes/x-child/style.css

and write this code in it:

/*
Theme Name: X child theme
Template: x
*/
	
3
Create a functions.php file

/wp-content/themes/x-child/functions.php

Write this code in it, just replace the shortcode with your slider's:

<?php
function smart_slider_header(){
    echo do_shortcode('[smartslider3 slider=1]');
}
          
add_action('x_before_view_integrity__breadcrumbs', 'smart_slider_header');
	

This will put the slider under your menu, over the breadcrumbs. If you want the slider under the breadcrumbs, replace 'x_before_view_integrity__breadcrumbs' with 'x_before_view_global__slider-below'.

Check the tip for more actions.

\wp-content\themes\x\framework\legacy\functions\frontend\view-routing.php

line 73. triggers the actions:

do_action( 'x_before_view_' . $file_action );
	

You could write this line under it:

echo 'x_before_view_' . $file_action . '<br>';
	

and check the frontend of your website. It will write out the names of the actions, which are being used at the different parts:
