Support » Plugin: immonex Kickstart » Changing the height of the slider on the property detail page

    On the property detail page I would like to change the height of the image slider, as the images are cuted, and as I can see the Image ratio of the slider is not 800:600 as it should be.
    Is it possible to adjust somewhere the height of the image slider, so the images are not cuted in their height?

    Hi Andrej,

    you can generally disable the Ken Burns Effect animation that (in some cases) forces smaller images (>= 800 px width) to cover the whole container element by adding the following filter function to the functions.php of the child theme or via a PHP Code Snippets plugin:

    /**
     * [immonex Kickstart] Disable the "Ken Burns Effect" (animation) in default
     * gallery views.
     */
    
    add_filter( 'inx_detail_page_elements', 'mysite_disable_ken_burns_effect' );
    
    function mysite_disable_ken_burns_effect( $page_elements ) {
    	if ( isset( $page_elements['gallery']['enable_ken_burns_effect'] ) ) {
    		$page_elements['gallery']['enable_ken_burns_effect'] = false;
    	}
    
    	return $page_elements;
    } // mysite_disable_ken_burns_effect

    (If required, it would also be possible to specify an alternative minimum width for images to be displayed with the Ken Burns Effect.)

    Hi, thank you very much for your answer. Is it also possible to change the height of the Slider Container, but to keep the Ken Burns Effect? What I see now is, that the Image Size in the Slider is always 100%, but then the Image is cutted in the height. Would it be possible, the height is 100% and then to adjust the width of the Image in the Slider (if neccessary)?
    And, how can I specify the minimum width you mentioned in your last sentence?

    If the Ken Burns Effect is disabled, there normally shouldn’t be any cropping, that is to say that the whole image should be visible. But this could be a theme-specific issue in this case.

    Anyway… please try the following first, before we investigate the theme topic any further: Disable the filter function mentioned above and instead add this constant definition in the functions.php of the child theme (adjust the minimum pixel size as required).

    define( ‘INX_SKIN_KEN_BURNS_MIN_IMAGE_WIDTH’, 800 ); // Width in px.

    Optionally, you can also define a maximum height, if needed:

    define( ‘INX_SKIN_MAX_IMAGE_HEIGHT’, 800 ); // Height in px.

    I disabled now the Ken Burns’s slider, but i would like the images fills the whole slider area. Now there is a big white space between the image and the left and right arrows.

    The default gallery works with a fixed, uniform height for all images, where the aspect ratio is (roughly) calculated based on the widest image. So if the property images have different sizes or orientations, it’s not possible to display all of them without spaces left and right AND without cropping at the same time.

    (To make this possible, the height of the image section would have to vary on every slide change, which is not the intended behaviour: The thumbnail navigation and the whole page contents below would “jump” up and down on every image change in this case.)

    We would not recommend a slider solution with variable image heights, but if a suitable one exists (image slider plugin), the default gallery could be replaced by that one.
