    Jason,
    Is there any way to reduce the sign of the opaque box that appears under any text (headline and description) on a full-size image slide?
    Here is a screenshot to show you the problem: [IMG]http://i46.tinypic.com/miezpj.png[/IMG]
    If you want to see it live my website is; http://www.giantleap-media.com (it’s the first slide).
    As you can see the box covers far more than the text, and way too much of the image.
    Thanks!
    Lance

    Hello,

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    For example, here’s how you could target this area and adjust its padding by gathering the information from your inspector.

    .standard-slider .media-full .content .content-inner { padding: 5px; }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
