[resolved] Better Responsive slides (7 posts)

    This plugin is looking GREAT!

    For a responsive site I'm working on, the slideshow responds well but a few things -
    There is a gap between the image and description for smaller screens (360x640). I notice the slide block holds the assigned height(I have it at 380), which if fine - would there be a way to keep the height of the slide image and crop/hide the sides? Or simply auto adjust the block height and have the description block right under the image?

    The stretch option works, but of course distorts. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll write the cropping of images down on the project board and try to inlude it in an oncoming update. There are some things that have priority though, it may therefore be a while.

    Adjusting the entire slideshow's height is not an option, as the content below the slideshow would move along with it. That would make for an unpleasant experience.

    Understandable. I've seen your project board. Thanks for considering and making this great plugin. ;)

    p.s. I've added a text shadow for the h2 and p default theme if you're interested. The text was a little hard to see unless hovered (I have it set to show descriptions instead of hide).

    .slideshow_container_0 .slideshow_description h2, .slideshow_container_0 .slideshow_description p {
    	text-shadow: black 0.1em 0.1em 0.1em;
    }

    Soliloquy does this automatically I believe. That is the only slide show plugin I use for responsive sites anymore.

    The text shadows look really nice. I might add the shadows to the default stylesheets in the release after tonight's bug-fix release. Thanks!

    Very welcome!

    I figured out I could use your 'Proportional relationship between slideshow's width and height (width:height)' option to alleviate my issue. Slideshow looks great in all responsive sizes now.
