[Plugin: Frontpage-Slideshow] Background questions (10 posts)

    Got a couple of questions regarding the backgrounds on the buttons and the main title area of Frontpage Slideshow. My questions are in the case of the main title area, I notice if I set the opacity, let's say to 50%, both the background as well as the text in it goes transparent on me. I just want it where only the background is partially transparent, the text should not be.

    Also, for the buttons on the left or right, is it possible to use background images? I was hoping to use a gradient to separate the buttons a bit more and make them stand out. Right now, they're all solid and don't really stand out too well.

    Hi,

    About the main title area : since the text is actually contained by the div that materialize the background : the opacity changes affetcs both text and background.

    About the buttons : you can use your owncss styles to add them some image background or colors...

    Anyway : its an open-source software and you can easily change what you need if you know how to do so.

    Well, I tried adding a background image but it wouldn't take. Just the flat color. That's why I wondered if there was a bug somewhere.

    Here's what i did to .fs-entry:

    .fs-entry {
    background-color: <?php echo $options['values']['fs_button_normal_color']?>!important;
    background-image: url(http://www.bigeasytexas.com/wp-content/themes/bet/images/main/bkg_purple.gif)!important;
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
    margin: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    }

    Color shows up but image doesn't. Am I doing this to the right class? If I get rid of background-color, it just appears as black.

    try `.fs-entry {
    /*background-color: <?php echo $options['values']['fs_button_normal_color']?>!important;*/
    background-image: url(http://www.bigeasytexas.com/wp-content/themes/bet/images/main/bkg_purple.gif)!important;
    background-repeat: repeat-x;
    margin: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    }`

    Nope. No background image and black for the color.

    I double checked and yes, the image is there (http://www.bigeasytexas.com/wp-content/themes/bet/images/main/bkg_purple.gif) but it's not showing up in the slideshow.

    Weird. Didn't have that issue on my Machine. However, I just upgraded and I see the new way to do it in the Admin and it works. Thanks for thinking of that useful feature.
