Rev Slider Height

Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm having some trouble with the height of the Rev Slider on the home page here: http://nationalmallunderground.org. I've tried adjusting the aspect ratio of the images, but it always crops them. And I'm having trouble getting the code to let me increase the height of the slider. Can you suggest something please?

 

Thanks!

The height is based on your width, the inline documentation for the Rev Slider suggests the following:

For high resolution, 2000px wide x 800px tall images.

 

What size images are you using ?

Thanks for getting back. I've tried different aspect ratios, including 1280x720, 1280x960 and 2000x800. The images at 2000px are large anyway, and it's difficult to reduce them enough to upload without compromising resolution.

 

The point is, I don't want the height to be 800px, but much larger (the 2000x800 is much too narrow, it looks ridiculous as a full page slider). So, is there a way to tell the slider that a max height is larger than 800, so that when I put in a 1200x960 image, it doesn't crop it into a narrow rectangle, but allow it to fill the screen? My editor is having trouble identifying information about the slider, so I can't really modify the code myself - it's causing a lot of trouble!

Firstly do not bump posts when you haven't received a reply within 4 hours. I have only just started my shift and you're in a que.

 

The Revslider can not be used in the way you want it to, meaning you can't change the height of it, without using custom CSS. Therefore, I recommend you either use custom CSS to override the max-height of 480px or find an alternative Slider, you can install the Legacy Plugin and use the old Feature Slider from PageLines Framework, this gives you a lot more control.

Little bit rough, actually. I didn't realise I was pushing up a queue, don't usually use forums like this. 

 

I want to change the CSS, but it doesn't seem to respond. I've put this in: 

.revslider-container {
  width: 100% !important;
  position: relative;
  padding: 0;
  max-height: 600px !important;
  overflow: hidden;
}

This should increase the max height from 480px to 600px, but it's not actually having an impact. The height is staying at 480px. Is there something I'm missing?

 

I'm also having trouble with the custom CSS in changing a button colour - I could tell it to change a button colour a few days ago, and now it doesn't show up. Any idea why that might be?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Try adding the following too:

.revslider-full {
max-height: 600px !important;
}

I have also reported this on our issue tracker too.

      Hi guys,
      every since Chrome introduce scroll anchoring (see chrome://flags) blog posts on my page start scroll automatically as soon as the user scrolls down a bit. It is super annoying and I don't know exactly what triggers the incompatibility with Chrome's latest feature that is supposed to improve usability.
      Since I don't know what causes it (Pagelines, or a Plugin), I would like to disable the feature using a CSS override that Google describes as follow:
      "Scroll anchoring aims to be the default mode of behavior when launched, so that users benefit from it even on legacy content. A CSS property overflow-anchor can disable scroll anchoring in part or all of a webpage (opt out), or exclude portions of the DOM from the anchor node selection algorithm. This property supports the following values when applied to an element E:
      overflow-anchor: auto (the default value) declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E. overflow-anchor: none declares that the DOM subtree rooted at E is not eligible to participate in the anchor node selection algorithm for any scrolling box created by E or an ancestor of E." Do you guys happen to know how to use that property with the ROOT element so it applies to the whole page?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hello,
       
      I'm basically a designer and understand a little on how to change CSS, etc., so please excuse my ignorance...  I recently upgraded to the newest platform from the DMS and my old DMS theme no longer functions.  I'm trying to replace the image slider that my Horizon Photography Theme (Nick Haskins) had created.  The Impulse image slider seemed the closest to what I need, but there are problems.
      It seems the the Impulse section for sliding images defaults to the image width, no the height.  I can change the Impulse stage height and width, but this does nothing to the internal content.  For instance, if I change the height to 200 pixels, the image remains the full width and only shows a cropped section.  I would like the ability to change the Impulse height, and have the image height fit space. 
      I've put this custom CSS in, but again, this only controls the stage height of Impulse:
      .pl-sn-impulse .pl-impulse-cell .cell-wrap, .pl-impulse-container, .owl-stage-outer {
        width: 100%;
      }
       
      Any suggestions welcome.  Thanks

      Hello. 
      I have just realized that CSS (Less plugin) , is not working..... I have disable all plugins (except PL CUSTOM LESS and PL5) , and ... it's not working ... 
      It's not the first time. Usually I had trouble with a plugin name Autoptimize , but it's Desactivate now , all memory have been purge, and it's still not working! :-/ So it's not from this plugin. 
      NB : When I am logged on my website, if i go on the black wordpress dashboard bar, go on the PL icon, clic on </> LESS/CSS => then the page suddenly apply the CSS .... But As soon that i reload the page, nothing. I think the problem is that the plugin LESS/CSS does not load properly (if I can say that with my simples words).
      I order to keep the site "good looking" I have temporally copy/paste all my LESS code in a plugin : Script n Styles that apply the LESS/CSS code... but it's not a solution for long time.
      Can someone help me ? Did I do something wrong ? Is it an update ?

      Feel free to delete this post if its not helpful or its just plain wrong.
       
      I though it might be useful to share how I customize the size of the builder. (reduce my eyestrain )
      1 - install stylerbot extension in chrome (stylerbot keeps this css every time you access the url)
       
      2- add this css to stylerbot for the site you are working on
      .CodeMirror {
          font-size: 14px;
          height: 600px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .pl-workarea-sidebar-container {
          right: 0px;
          width: 500px;
      }
      .pl-workarea.pl-has-sidebar .iframe-container {
          right: 500px ;
      }
       
      change sizes to suit.
       
      Cheers.
