Slider Content Dimensions

    Hello,

    Is there any way to make the image portion of the slider smaller and the header/description portion larger? The slider itself doesn’t have to change dimensions. I tried using firebug to modify the portions of the slider but for some reason they didn’t match up evenly. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks for a great theme, it really is perfect.

    Hello,

    On this one, you’ll also need to customize the CSS there splitting the two sections in the staged slide. Basically, by default, you’ve got a 60%/40% split going on between the two sections. Here’s a theoretical way you could adjust this:

    .slide.tight .grid_fifth_3 {
    	width: 60%;
    }
    .slide.tight .grid_fifth_2 {
    	width: 40%;
    }

    So, you’d want to play with those number until it looks the way you want.

    Keep in mind that the theme does carefully calculate these percentages in conjunction with the crop sizes used. So you will need to take that into account with your customizations and if you need to change the crop sizes to fit your needs.

    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.

    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.
