    Hi, I am adding the slide inside a custom shortcode box - but it goes all the way off the page!

    Here is my code:

    [message type="custom"][sliderly id=65 type=slideshow width=800 height=143 controls=hide][/message]

    here is a pic of what happens:

    Well. I couldn't get that to work so I abandoned that shortcode - so now I NEED to add padding to the left:

    see here:

    I cannot for the life of me figure it out - I tried many things - what is the active CSS file to modfiy to add left padding or margin?

    I really hope this has support because I am on crunch time and I saw the last post it has been 3 days and still no support reply. Please reply. thanks.

    Hi Monk,

    Sorry I didn't get back to you. This is my first plugin and I was never notified of these support requests. Please accept my apologies.

    Did you ever resolve the padding issue?

    I need help in this area too. I am using shortcode within a Thesis openhooks. I am able to put in Sliderly, however, I cannot seem to adjust the position of it. Currently the shortcode is in 'thesis_hook_after_header'. I have tried using a DIV ALIGN Tag which appeared to do nothing. I have also tried using a TABLE centered Tag; this resulted in the slider being centered, nowever the navigation was pulled to the right of and off the entire page. I also tried using PHP code to enable this using a PHP echo which also appeared to do nothing. If you could please help me (I'm not sure if there is a conflict going on with the Theme or another plugin).

    Could you try adding one of these to your stylesheet?

    .sliderly-slideshow, .sliderly-gallery {
    margin: 0 auto;
    }

    ~ OR ~

    .sliderly-slideshow, .sliderly-gallery {
    margin-left: 50px;
    }

    I tried the margin auto code first, but it appeared to just move about 25-50 pixels to the right.

    I was successful in using the other, however, I found out that depending on the size of your slides (and their resolution), as well as whether or not you have full-width or page framework inside of Thesis, it may need to be adjusted. Mine was specifically

    .sliderly-slideshow, .sliderly-gallery {
    margin-left: 250px;
    }

    Thanks for the help, oh btw, I was using Thesis 1.8.5 and the "OpenHook Customizations Manager 3.3.1." Hope this may help you in a future release or others who are using Thesis.

    I love this plugin; I hope I'll be able to "Buy A Coffee" for you soon.

    I also wanted to add...it may be helpful if you added a settings page where you could adjust the font settings. you know size, color, etc. Also it might be helpful if you provided a series of different fonts so that others could match them to their site. Just an added 2ยข.

    Thanks for the input, Adam. Glad you got it working!

    Font settings would definitely be an asset, I'll put it on the list of things to do.

    Thanks,
