Parabola
Editing the Slideshow (3 posts)

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if I could get some help altering the slideshow. What I’d like to do with it is display something similar to the slideshow from this website: http://www.elon.edu/home/ ..I tried altering the slideshow and got it displayed similar to that; however, I could not figure out how to resizing the image. Essentially what I want to do is resize the images in the slideshow to 600x400px. I’d then like to (with the remaining space in the slideshow) display the information about the slide, the title and text. I really love the look of that slider from the above website and want to modify mine to be similar to that one. I tried playing around with this for several hours and got something similar but not quite what I was looking for so I gave up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Brennan

    Hi Ben,

    To edit the size you would have to go into the Parabola setting located on the left (click appearances then Parabola settings). From there click the presentation page. Then go to the slides and there should be two boxes that have the height set at 350 and the width at 1050. Change those number to whatever you want (600 by 400px).

    If you are having trouble here is a step by step video teaching people how to create a website using the Parabola theme.
