    Couldn't find it in the docs, but curious if easyrotator works with % based widths for fluid themes.
    *Can't have anything with a fixed width in my website theme or it totally breaks the layout

    Hi @Anointed,

    Thanks for using EasyRotator for WordPress! EasyRotator works best when it has a static space to live in. For simple rotators/sliders, however, you can add auto-resizing via the scale option under the CSS3 transform property.

    For example, say you have an 800x400 rotator. In the desktop-targeted layout, you have a 800px wide space, so everything's perfect. In the tablet layout, though, you have a 400px wide space. To scale it down to 400x200 on tablets, you could add the following in your tablet stylesheet:

    .dwuserEasyRotator {
       -webkit-transform: scale(0.5, 0.5);
       -moz-transform: scale(0.5, 0.5);
       -o-transform: scale(0.5, 0.5);
       transform: scale(0.5, 0.5);
       -webkit-transform-origin: 0 0;
       -moz-transform-origin: 0 0;
       -o-transform-origin: 0 0;
       transform-origin: 0 0;

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for info.
    Yes, I did try it out, but in the end was not able to use easyrotator. While a great concept, it was just impossible for me to get working properly in my responsive theme. Everything in my theme is % based, so even setting breakpoints using transforms was not enough to get it working.

    Here's to hoping that future vs. will fully support fluid layouts :)

    Hello all,

    Just to follow up on this, we officially added responsive support back in July. You can learn more here.
