Hello,

I want to add an element to the top of my site, as seen on this site: http://www.bulkdesigns.net/

With the checkmarks, product image and call to action link.

Anyway to do this?

I thought of using tables to create a custom element in the post editor and then putting the HTML into the Center Column, but I am not sure that a table will render correctly in all browsers or in mobile.

I can use any ATA version, currently using Ata 3.7

Any suggestions?

OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
1) upgrade to atahualpa 3.7.12
2) use FireBug in FireFox and examine how they did it
3) replicate that idea in the atahualpa 'Configure Header Area' option and 'CSS Inserts'
4) pat yourself on the back

Thanks Juggle,

Unfortunately that won't work, he bought that theme, it's part of the design, the developers license for that theme is $3700, or $55 for one time use. Way too much, and I love ATA wanted to stick with that.

if you learn to look at the source os a page, you can see how the page is built. I could probably duplicate that page in a day of screwng arround with it.

That's true, I will try it out.

Do you know of any slider plugin that works with ATA, I have tried all the top ones, and none work properly, they either are flat images, or the slider is broken, nothing works??

Try 'Slideshow', the only thing I wish I could do differently with it is use my own directory to store the images. See at masters swim team site.

That looks really good, I am curious, how did you set up the three columns in the header is that a table?

Added Widgets. You can put them at the top and bottom of center column, in header and or footer. as many rows as you want. Like you can have two columns on top of four columns that are above a single. I have a few sites that are almost all widgets. Here is an example at Grace Ministries.
logo in upper left is in a widget as is the menu on right under menu1
single widget with big image then under four widgets, under that 5 and under that (locations) a single one. fun.!
