Good call, Jeffrey! That definitely works. I’ve also updated the ‘official answer’ to include instructions on how to re-order them in a way that allows for other sorting options as well.

Hi John,

Lem emailed you with instructions on how to make this edit to the HTML. It was sent on Feb 23rd. If you didn’t receive the email, feel free to shoot us an email at and we can forward it to you.

Otherwise, you can change this URL on line 46 in the “columns_2.html” file, which can be found by navigating to “Website” > “Theme” > “_columns_2.html”.

Hi Christopher,

If you are not seeing a tab called “New File” when you click on Websites – Theme, you are likely using either a stock theme or a custom theme that is owned by someone else and is shared to you in a way that prevents you from editing it. To learn about creating your own custom theme, check out this page:

commented on How can I display my latest Tweets?
Hi Michael,

If you’d like to have the twitter feed show up in the sidebar but only on certain pages, you can use liquid conditional (IF/THEN) statements:

For example, you could surround that twitter HTML code from the article above with the following two lines of code:

{% if page.slug == ‘learn_more’ %}
% endif %}

If you would rather have the twitter feed on a page but not in the sidebar, the easiest method will be to generate an embed code from twitter and then paste that code into the “Template” tab of that particular page using this method:

Here is where you can generate the embed code:

commented on Can I slow down the speed of the featured slides?
Hi Ashley,

Unfortunately you would need to use Arya’s suggestion rather than just being able to adjust/insert the flexslider customization “slideshowSpeed:”. This is because the flexslider JS is loaded in a way that prevents us from being able to access it.

It’s definitely an extremely complicated process and it comes down to the fact that the featured content sliders in NationBuilder were not designed to be modified like this. The solution outlined here (and in more detail by Arya below) is just a workaround solution, or a “This is hard but if you absolutely need to change this then this is how to do it” method.

However, the folks here at NationBuilder who make changes to our themes are always open to suggestions for improvements, so if you’d like to see a more easily editable Featured Content Slider in the future, I recommend suggesting it at

I’m sorry about that!
