I would need some advice on how to set up (or modify) the rocksolid slider (template) in a way that background images are being included from an RSS feed?

Thanks and best regards,

Paul Krier

    Thank you for submitting your question!

    The slider extension currently does not support using RSS feeds directly.

    You could remove the background image from the slide and reposition the image from the RSS module:

    .mod_rocksolid_slider .mod_rss_reader .image_container,
    .mod_rocksolid_slider .centered-wrapper-inner {
        position: static;
    .mod_rocksolid_slider .mod_rss_reader img {
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
        left: 0;
        z-index: -1;
