Change Slider Description Text Box Size

    I can’t figure out how to change the size of the box size for the label and description on the standard full size slide. My client requested that it be narrower to take up less of the image. If not can I use a different slider (Slider PRO) there?

    Thanks
    Jacob

    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.

    .standard-slider .media-full .content { max-width: ...; }
    .standard-slider .media-full .content .content-inner { padding: ...; }

    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.

    Thanks that worked perfectly! I did try Firebug before but couldn’t quite figure it out. The video helps. I still can’t figure out how to change the transparency of the box around the text, even after poking around in Firebug for a bit.

    Thanks again

    It’s just standard CSS opacity on the .standard-slider .media-full .content selector.

    Thanks, Not sure how i missed it but I hadn’t clicked the correct div class. Clicking on ‘content’ gave me the correct options. I tried to inspect the element in Chrome and found an interesting color changer as well for the different elements.

    Thanks for your great support,
    Jacob
