slideshow fill sheet edge to edge in top widget area (4 posts)

    Stefan, I dig your plug-in for the user-friendliness but I struggle to get the slide show to fill the entire width of the sheet. There seems to be a 5px margin. I have changed the top widget area so it's on top of left sidebar and content area. The width of sheet is 900px and I tried to set slideshow width to both 900 and 0. What to do?

    The theme is made in Artisteer and the site is still on my hard drive until it's ready for launch so I can't send you the url :(

    The navigation buttons both are 5 pixels away from the sides, so that may make the slideshow look like it's not filling up the entire width. It will only look like this if your images aren't streched though.

    Another cause could be a padding on the parent element. This sets its content inward a number of predefined pixels.

    It could also be that your theme sets a maximum width for 'div' elements in your widget area. The slideshow could be affected by this.

    Thank you for your swift reply.
    I have set the 'Fit image into slide'-value to yes. So thats ruled out.

    The padding in the parent element is set to 'no padding' so thats ruled out too.

    Where can I change the width in for the 'div'-elements?

    A 'div' width can be set in CSS by a statement as simple as this:

    div {
        max-width: 90%;

    This would set the maximum width of the slideshow to be smaller than its parent element.

    An option is to ignore the issue for now and contact me as soon as you're about to get the website online. It's far easier to resolve this issue if I can actually see the CSS at work.
