    There is no feature in the theme adjust the height of the slider. This will be a customization you’d need to make to the theme.

    The height of the slider is determined by the height of the images, which can be changed either by filtering “themeblvd_image_sizes” or using this plugin. — Or uploading images smaller than the crop size, as you’ve done will work, too.

    Then, specifically for the featured areas, you’ll also have to customize the height given with CSS. 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.

    #featured .element-slider .standard-slider-wrapper li.slide { ... }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – 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 for your assistance Jason. Much appreciated.
