    Is it somehow possible to get the entire slider image to ba a link, not just that button up in the corner? Its kinda hard for the end user to catch that there even excists a link.

    This will be a customization you’ll need to make to the theme, but can be pretty easily accomplished with style modifications. I’ll share a CSS snippet that’s been floating around that should help since I get this question quite often.

    .element-slider .slide .image-link,
    .element-slider .slide .image-link:hover {
        background-color: #fff; /* Triggers the anchor in IE */
        background-image: none;
        top: 0;
        left: 0;
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
        filter: alpha(opacity=0);
        -moz-opacity: 0;
        -khtml-opacity: 0;
        opacity: 0;

    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 – 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.


    Excellent! This has been a big drawback for us. Thanks a bunch!


    I’m using Alyeska, and my whole slider image is clickable EXCEPT the text overlay. Is there any way I can make that clickable, too? Thanks. You can see my home page at

    Unfortunately, this is not possible because the text in a separate container from the image of the slide and its wrapping link. It works like this because users can be putting clickable elements within the description.
