quickslider problem

Recommended Posts


I'm new to all this - and I have searched the forum and wiki already.

What size images will be displayed properly in the quickslider? Do I edit the photo's before I upload them, or will it be easier to do it once I've uploaded them....because right now I have all sorts of crazy going on.

Thank you!

Hi uranus

I think it's best to adjust the size before uploading.

You can upload them to the width you will have the quick slider on your website and is better than it weighs no more than 100Kb (or less) to make it load faster.

I do so in this way.

Like batman said, they should be edited first, but if you don't want any weird stuff going on there it's best to make them all the same size.

But WHAT size is correct for the Quickslider....i've edited a whole new crop of photo's so that they are the same size (at least width wise)....and they're still crazy big.

The correct size is any size you like, but you need to make sure that all the images used are have the same dimensions. This doesn't mean the same width but both width and height.

If all the images have the same width and height, then no odd things will happen. Alternatively, If you do not like the functionality of the Quick Slider, use either the Feature Slider section or the Carousel shortcode.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      The media selector for sections uses full size images, you can't choose to use smaller file sizes. That means that sections are huge in file size. So for a box image in Boxes which will never be wider than 500 px, Pagelines choose full image size, even if it is a 2 mb photo. 
      Adding alt and title text to the images would also be good.
      I'd prefer to use the default setup by WP, which has all the options we need.
      For now I have to use this plugin as a workaround, by selecting the best size and add it in the url field.

      Hi guys
      I saw discussion back in 2013 about ibox/icon/image size. Here's another question.
      Have a client who wishes to have iboxs displaying several product categories in a shopping store, then under that, a couple more boxes - with clickable images - with DIFFERENT ASPECT RATIOS!!! from the iboxes used above.
      see  http://ecoluxhomeproducts.com/storedev/dev/ (site under development so may look different when you visit)
      So is iBox the only section that has clickable images AND some sort of text describing the action you wish to take? And how control aspect ratio of the media display box? Client want's the 2 down below (Designer Collections and Blog) to be longer, landscape.  I know I can code it up in HTML or PHP, but the idea is to make it simple for client to change the images AND the text AND the url the link goes to.
      So any ideas what's the best section to accomplish this? And how control aspect ratio (those 2 images are actually landscape dimensions.)

      I have been trying so many different options on the forums and nothing's working for me.  On one site (most recent one i'm working on), I can change the size of the navigation bar at the top with no problem at all.  However, when I try using Simple Navi (Full Width) on another site, nothing works.  All I want is the logo to be larger (be it by changing the size of the container or the image div itself). I think my biggest issue is not knowing exactly what I need to direct my css changes to.  I am also trying to change the background of the bar.  I don't want any background. 100% transparent background.  I've tried using 'background-color: transparent;' but that hasn't had any effect so far.  I also tried using a 1% (as well as a 50%) transparent solid color image from photoshop to set it as the background, but that didn't work either.
      So here's the long story short of what I want:
      1. What's the easiest way to find the exact name of the object(would 'div' be a more correct term?) I am making changes to in css? (i've tried using Chrome's 'Inspect Element' but that doesn't always work)
          ex: How do people know to do '.section-navi img { .... }'
      2. How do I change the size of the logo being used in Simple Navi (full-width)?
      3. How can I make the navbar have either slightly transparent solid colored background, or no background at all (100% transparent).

      Hello, I'm trying to have the images (featured images) from the Flipper be thumbnail. I set that as the option but still shows large images. You can check out the site at http://casamotif.com. It is under the big splash image on the home page.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi folks.
      I am using Pagelines DMS to build my blog http://foodandfitness.co.uk.
      The problem i have encountered, and struggled to find answers for in the forums, is how i can change the size of the featured image as it is displayed along with the excerpt in the 'list view'.
      Currently i have my blog roll settings as 'list view' with the image 'left justified' at 150px by 150px.
      I would like to be able to use the settings as 'list view' with image 'on top' - however when i use these settings the featured image is cropped and large portions of my image are no longer visible.
      I would like my images to be displayed as 600px by 600px (un-cropped) with the title, meta and excerpt underneath.
      It's important for me that my blog uses large images rather than the small ones i currently have to use, but i can't seem to figure this problem out! 
      If anyone has a solution or advice i would be very grateful.
