Change slider dimensions (4 posts)

    Hi

    I'm trying to customize the slider by removing the navigation and making the slider higher and less wide.

    I've managed to remove the navigation with the code:
    ul.ui-tabs-nav {visibility: hidden;}

    but it leaves a white background I can't remove. Anyone know how to get rid of the white?

    Also, I can change the width of the slider with:
    div.cc_slider {width: 900px}

    but it's not working properly when trying to adjust the height (only stretches the white background, not the actual slider/picture).

    Please help

    This is my site:

    Cheers
    Jakob

    Hi Jakob,

    nice site!

    Before starting any custom CSS on the slider, first try to customize via the options in wp-admin "Appearance" -> "Theme Settings".

    There you will find an extra slideshow tab with a lot of options to customize your slideshow.

    Check the option "Slideshow Style" and switch from "default" to "full-width" to achieve what you described above - without any of your additional CSS..

    You can also try out the shadow effect which should integrate nicely in your site as you use a bright background colour..

    Many thanks for your quick reply Konrad.

    Unfortunately slideshow tab doesn't have the customization options I need.

    I'd like to make the slider narrower and a bit higher, but as I described it's not so easy.

    Any other suggestions?

    I have the pro version, with a child theme were I've put the above mentioned code into.

    Many thanks
    Jakob

    you can either copy the code from the slideshow function into your child theme's functions.php, rename it and start from there with your own custom slider.

    or another easy way would be to try out some of all these amazing slideshow plugins out there with all kind of types of slideshow..

    depends on what you like more ;)
    have fun, konrad
