Changing the size of the features bar

Hi,

 

I've been trying for ages to change the size of the features bar on my home page. I've looked at all the settings and still seems far to big. 

 

Silly question but is it just a case of changing the size of the photo within the bar?

Hi,

 

If your images are all a standard size, particularly height, you may go to the page where the slider is to appear, scroll down to PageLines Meta Settings and click the tab for Features.  You'll then be able to select static height and set that height to a fixed pixel value.  The width is essentially controlled by the layout and where the slider is placed (full width page template or content area with sidebar(s)).

 

I don't recommend using slides too large in size.  Some browsers don't crop images, and so a slide of 1000px wide that is set into a 700px wide content area may experience bleeding of the wide image under sidebars.  Uniformity is best.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

 

I'll have a look in to that now and see how I get on.

So I've done that and its BIG! But I think once you read the spec's of the photo you will advise to re size it.

 

Dimensions W 2513 x H 1669

Resolution 300 dpi

 

(and yes my site is slow!)

Hi Phil 

 

W 2513 x H 1669 is quite large. Definitely advise to resize that. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      Is there a way to use the whole image in the feature slider as a link? I have searched the forum and noticed in 2011 this was posted and the reply was no. Has anything changed in 4 years?

      I'm using features on the landing page of my website. My issue is that when the page loads the feature slider will resize itself every time. I've tried to tinker around with the layout of the site (static, responsive, %, px) and with the source images (not to big, the actual size) but it doesn't help. Any tips? 
       
      Here's a video of how it looks:

      The features images are not displaying properly. The first image is blank and the second displays this script: if (document:)document.getElementbyld("divcb6b4a52").style.height = (441-440)+"px";
       
      There should only be 8 images to display, but it adds two images before that are blank and have that text I indicated.

      Hello 
       
      We've recently added the top rated Word Press translation tool WPML to our Website in order to translate our site into a second language. Everything worked like a charm, except one thing: the PlatformPro features. 
       
      Our home page was designed in English with the features slider and some text, using what is now the Select Feature-Set for Posts & 404 Pages option so that we could custom create our features. The features are tagged as default-features so that they may be selected to appear in the scroll. The thing is, we cannot translate them. 
       
      Can someone please help me figure out a work around please?
       
      Many thanks
