Support » Theme: Pinboard » Sticky Post Slider

  • I am using Pinboard theme, and the slider/sticky post is way too large on my site – it takes up the entire page. I would like it to give me the option of cropping so that the size of the slider is only a third of the page, like in the example.

    Can anyone help with this issue? My website is http://www.streetcollage.co

    You can see how large it is. I do like the slider feature but would like it to be a lot smaller, still stretching the width of the page.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Do you know where to add this;

    .slides {
     height: 200px;
    }

    Where do I add this?

    I have tried to resize images but it doesn’t work to the 1140×395, but I’d rather have the theme crop the image (and me reposition) anyhow, since all images do not work at this size.

    Thank you for your help!

    Thank you, I added this to my CSS sheet and it cropped the image. Can I reposition the cropped part? Can you please visit my site to see how the cropped image is only the top of the photo? I would like it to reposition and this will be a problem for all photos.

    Is there coding for this?

    Thank you!

    This worked for me as well. I had to resize some of my photos but that was all. I went with 300 pixels.

    I placed this code in the slider.php file found under the editor tab in the left hand column (click on Appearance). Just do a search (Ctrl+F) for “.slides” and place it after the first instance. You may need to remove the comma but not sure.

    Thank you! Do you know how I can get my top image to be bigger? The default is to just show a sliver up top (if you go to my site, it is grey with colorful dots). I’ve looked in my Editor and I can place the image size up top. I’d like to make it bigger and have less of an empty space.

    Hi streetcollage,

    Try to add “px” to your css definition, e.g. height=”96px”

    For to have less of an empty space i wrote a tutorial, which might help you:
