[Resolved] [Plugin: Slideshow] custom view arrows disappear / h2 font lighter

    Thanks for posting this issue, it’s actually not so strange this happens. The URL to the button image is relative, so when you use the custom style the URL doesn’t point to the plugin directory anymore.

    I’ll fix this problem in the upcoming version 2.0.0. In the mean time you could use the full URL to the buttons there, instead of the relative one: ‘http://[yoursite.com]/wp-content/plugins/slideshow-jquery-image-gallery/images/’.

    As for the ‘H2’, this element already is white but becomes transparent because of its parent element, the description box. When you want the ‘H2’ to be lighter, change the value of the descritption box’s opacity like this:

    filter: alpha(opacity = 100);
    opacity: 1.0;

    It might be a better idea indeed to link the plugin to its WordPress page. I’ll change that.

    I have just started using the slideshow plug in on my site and love it. I prefer the light style, but would like to darken up the “next” and “previous” arrows just a tad since the semi-transparent white ones disappear into the background color of my website. I have experimented with the custom style function, but am unable to make it work on the arrows. The dark style doesn’t work with my page. My goal is to the make the arrows on the light style more visible, perhaps by darkening the hover color to a light gray. Any suggestions? http://prtcdressage.com/?p=201

    I see you already figured out how to use custom styles on your slideshow. You could add a shadow to the navigation buttons when the mouse hovers over. This would really outline them, making them more visible to the viewer.

    Here you can find is a really good tutorial about CSS shadows.
