If I am on my home screen and I use the volume buttons, it only changes the media volume instead of the notification/ring tone volume like I would expect. The only way I can change the notification/ring tone volume is to go into the sound settings menu and adjust the slider. Am I overlooking a way to change what the volume buttons control?

Apparently, that's how Oneplus has set it to work. You'll have to tweak it with xposed/ custom rom/ magisk mod.

Has anybody found a solution to this annoying as hell problem? How do you make the volume side buttons control the ringer volume? Why is there not a choice? Is it that difficult to for the programmers to fix? It's a simple thing. I hate that when you go into settings and control the volume that way IT PLAYS YOUR F&$KING RING TONE!!! That is so stupid! And don't come back with "use your slide switch above the on/off button" because I want to use my volume buttons. Can anyone help? It sucks having to waste so much time to try and find a solution to such a simple request....

Same here. Any software "fix" that bypasses the slider? I just have a bad feeling about it breaking one day...

use a volume app. Also, if you are putting a request do it nicely, nobody is working for you here. We share what we know and nobody owes anyone anything.
That is how oneplus has designed the volume keys to work so complain on oneplus support.

What volume app? I can't find anything that overrides the slider. Allegedly, oxygen slider (xposed module) might be it, but wanted to confirm if anyone here was successful in doing so.

Try this thread - xposed alternative full working
I don't know which app. It has been a long time so I don't know if it exists anymore.

Ended up finding a little app called "silent mode toggle". Basically puts the phone into vibrate mode, which is all I need. Tasker has similar functionally as well. This bypasses the slider (needs to be in the ring mode).
