Elementor Editor

There are two ways to insert a slideshow into the page:

1) From Page Settings -> Page Header settings.

Here, you can select the page title to be a slideshow (fig. 1.1):

and select appropriate slider. “Show header below slideshow” option allows you to display slideshow above the header (fig. 1.2). This options is important, because it is not available when inserting the slideshow using Elementor widget.

Important: these settings will not work if you have applied a header template for the page from Templates -> Theme builder -> Header, you will see a yellow warning as shown in the screenshot (fig. 1.3).
