Responsive WordPress Slider - Soliloquy Lite
[resolved] Positioning image (11 posts)

    I just installed the plug-in and set the slider size to 950 x 300 and then uploaded three images of the same size. Rather than filling the entire slider area, there is a white margin/border on the far right side.

    What I'd like to do is either eliminate that white margin OR put a narrow white border around the entire image. Are these things I'd need to handle in the CSS, or is it easily handled by upgrading to the premium plug-in?

    Sorry if I've missed this somewhere. Appreciate your help.

    Thanks!

    Can you send a link to the site so I can debug?

    Try adding this to your style.css (custom.css if working with a theme);

    /*For Soliloquy Lite*/
    .flex-container {
      margin: 0 auto !important;
    }
    
    .soliloquy-container{
    margin: 0 auto !important;
    }

    Escobara, I inserted your code into the css, and that certainly centered the image on the slider. Thanks!

    In your opinion, though, should I have the image filling the entire slider with no white margin on either side? Would that look better, and how would I do that?

    Thanks!

    It's whatever you feel like looks best, although I think making the images 960px to fill the width of the widget would look best. :-)

    Ok, but I had set the slider size to be 950 x 300. Shouldn't the 950 x 300 pixel image fill that entire area now?

    ALSO, (sorry if this needs a separate thread) this message has cropped up in my header:

    "The slider ID you entered is not valid. Please check to make sure you entered it correctly."

    I am, in fact, using the correct slider ID in the slider widget box. Not sure how to get rid of this.

    Thanks!

    It did fill the entire slider area, but the container holding the slider (the widget area) is 960 pixels, not 950.

    It looks like you have an extra widget in the header. See if that is the case and remove it if necessary.

    Thanks, I understand about the slider size now.

    As for the header, the only widget there is the "header right" widget and the only thing in that widget is the navigation menu. There is no shortcode, there, for a slider. Any other thoughts?

    I did a Google search on this "ID not valid" message and found another instance of it, but the thread I found was closed without giving a resolution because the user had solved it. Any other suggestions you have would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Julie

    I'm not really sure what the issue could be. Have you place any other sliders in your theme code? It is somewhere inside the header. Have you checked your functions.php file to ensure there is no other template tag or shortcode? Just do a search for "soliloquy" in the file to find the extra code.
