View Full Version : Featured content slider adjustments...?

09-15-2011, 04:11 PM
Hey everyone, I'm designing a website via blogger for a university group. I'm using a content slider visible at http://BUQuidditch.blogspot.com. The photos I've placed into it do NOT fit correctly and I wasn't sure if there was a way to adjust code to fit the images into the place... Can you help? Here's the code for the slider--

<!-- Featured Content Slider Started -->

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>

<script type='text/javascript'>
function startGallery() {
var myGallery = new gallery($(&#39;myGallery&#39;), {
timed: true,
delay: 7000,
slideInfoZoneOpacity: 0.8,
showCarousel: false,
slideInfoZoneSlide: false
window.addEvent(&#39;domready&#39;, startGallery);

<div class='fullbox_excerpt'>
<div class='fullbox_content'>
<div class='smooth_gallery'>
<div id='myGallery'>

<div class='imageElement'>

I don't know the dimensions of the container, or the image from your example. But, you could change the size of the images to make them smaller, or the div to make it bigger... just add the following right after the class='full'

style="with:##px ; height:##px"

but replace the ## with the dimensions you want. If your not sure, then experiment a little. Have fun :thumbsup:
