[resolved] SlideDeck Slider and Theme (20 posts)

    I have installed the WP Zoom - Zenko theme and I am having problems with the SlideDeck that is installed. The featured photos are bleeding over into the SlideDeck itself.

    It can be seen in the first slide on http://www.southwestshadow.com

    They told me to make this adjustment to remove this from the boostrap.css

    .thumbnail { border: 1px solid #ddd; }

    But I have no idea where this is located. Anyone know where it is?

    Andrew,

    I appreciate your prompt response. Does this forum not address any issues with purchased themes?

    Yes, sorry for the terse reply. Here's a reference from "The Bad Stuff" of this forums' guidelines.

    Got it.

    Do NOT press moderators or anyone else to help with premium themes. We do NOT support premium themes as you paid for their support when you bought it and it is not our place to keep shady vendors in business. If someone wants to help, that is fine.

    I did not think I was pressing anyone regarding this matter. I am a school teacher trying to help out my students with this issue.

    If anyone else has a moment and would like to help, I would appreciate it.

    That CSS code is in the bootstrap.css file. See this on editing files:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_Files

    But the problem with changing code in theme files is that the changes will likely be overwritten when the theme is updated. It's therefore generally recommended that you use a child theme or a custom CSS plug-in. Once you have that set up, you can "remove" that code by adding this to the new CSS file:

    .thumbnail { border: none; }

    However, I looked at the page and did not see the issue you describe, so I'm not sure the above will do what is intended.

    Thanks WPyogi.

    When the page loads, look at the first photo that shows up. The number 1 is bleeding on to the photo and the photo is going underneath the actual slider box.

    Do you see that?

    Do you know of another solution besides the one proposed with the bootstrap?

    It looks fine in Safari, Firefox and Chrome on a Mac... What browser are you using? (Let me guess -- IE?)

    Go ahead and try their solution -- nothing to lose by it, and it may work.

    Lol. No. Firefox.

    Can I send you a screenshot?

    You can't send it, but you can post it on the site or there are free image posting sites. Then post the link here.

    But you might want to also look at these mark-up errors on that page and make sure that none of them are in that area of the page -- just in case. I have to run off for a bit right now, or I'd do it, but I'll check back on this later in case no one else has picked it up.

    I wrote in white text at the top and bottom of the photo.

    That's a great resource; for each of the errors, should they be corrected? It looks like the things like the < should just be deleted?

    Ah yes, now I see the problem...I think I found a fix -- try adding this code to the custom CSS file (see the link above re: editing files):

    #slider {
        width: 987px !important;
    }

    Sure, but I really have to go for about an hour...if it's a new issue, post a new thread and I'll look at it.

    Do you have an email you would mind I send directly to? I'll delete this thread once you post.
