    Thanks so much for all your help. It now looks great.

    in reply to: Full width slider on Frontpage looks tiny on mobile #287640

    Thanks so much for your help.
    The image was a bit stretched and it also broke the other responsive layouts, so I changed it to this:
    @media only screen and (max-width: 480px) {
    #top .slideshow_container ul, #top .slideshow_container ul img {
    margin: 0 auto;
    height: 300px !important;

    #top .slideshow_container ul img {
    width: 240% !important;
    min-width: 240% !important;

    Note, the 240% (not 200%) works better for the width.
    Also, I added @media only screen and (max-width: 480px) so it did both instructions when on the iPhone view.
    Now here’s my problem. On the front page, I have three columns that I’ve selected in template builder, and the main image that appears for the thumbnail (sourced from another page) is also affected by this code. It’s zooming in the pictures ‘so you’re thinking of visiting our church’, etc.
    It seems the .slideshow_container object is also affecting these three other images, not just the slider.
    Any way to only select the top slider and not the other three images?
    Thanks again!

    Yep, Nick, changing it to 480px fixed it all. Great stuff.

    Now, to get it just right, I think the opening page slider is still not right.

    Ideally there would be two changes.

    Firstly, instead of the image being so wide and short, is it possible to crop the image so that it’s a bit taller?

    Secondly, the heading of the slider text is very small, and the spacing large. Especially compared to the big text that’s underneath it. So if you look at our main page on an iPhone, you’ll see that the writing ‘Join us to experience real hope in the real Jesus!” is huge, but the text on the slider “You’re welcome at Oak Flats Anglican” is tiny. But when you’re on a normal display, both of those texts are the same size. Any way to fix that?

    Thanks for your patience, but I think together we’re improving the responsive code for iPhones, which will improve the theme for not just me, but for others, too.

    Grace and peace,

    Yep, that’s much better. Thanks, Nick.

    However, when I put the iPhone on landscape, the same problems occur as before, although it’s not quite as bad.

    The text on the front page slider looks weird (text is cut off) and it would be good to move the whole white text box down just a little (say, half way between where it is at the moment and where it is for the portrait orientation).

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks, Nick.

    I’ve gone with the second one, and you can see how it looks on

    It’s a little weird having a feint line through the box. If we can fix that, it will be great. But if not, then it’s acceptable.

    What do you think?



    in reply to: iPhone slider image obstructed #111137


    If we were able to make the photos cropped differently with this iPhone responsive design, then that would fix it.

    So, instead of being about 2cm tall, if the photo was 4cm tall then that would fix it… and would also make the text on top of it much better, too.

    How might we do that?


    in reply to: iPhone slider image obstructed #111136

    Hey Nick,

    Here’s what worked for me (after some experimentation):

    margin-bottom: -50px;

    margin-left: -50px;

    margin-right: -45px

    and that seemed to work fine for the iPhone4, which I’ve got.

    But… that’s not the problem I actually was speaking about… but it was a different problem I was going to bring up next !!!

    So, to fix the original problem, the issue is that when you go to on an iphone4, then you’ll see that the bottom third of the photo of me and my wife is obscured by the white box that’s got the text in it.

    Is there any way to drop the box right down when it’s viewed on an iphone4?

    Hey Nick,

    Doesn’t seem to work.

    When I paste it in the Custom CSS bit, it wipes out the “down: 200px;” line, as if it is an error, and puts a “!” against it in the column.

    Then, I tried pasting it in the Theme Options page, but it still didn’t work.

    Can you double-check the code?

    Thanks so much!

    Thanks so much, Devin.

    I’ll have a play with some different Save To Web settings, and see how they work with the Retina plug in, too.



    in reply to: Image size for Retina #110458

    Cool. Thanks Devin.

    What recommendation do you have for the image size in pixels for the main slider image?

    I’ll go into Photoshop and re-crop them.

    Thanks so much,


    in reply to: Image size for Retina #110456


    I’ve turned off the Retina plugin, and when I go to the images at the top of the page (slider), and do a ‘save image’ and then see the size, the size is the original JPEG size, namely 2.2Mb for some of them (that’s big!)

    Now, when I upload those images, it seems to often hang on the ‘crunching’ section of the file. Not sure why… and not sure if that is contributing to the problem.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers, Jodie.

    in reply to: Image size for Retina #110455

    Thanks, Devin.

    So what you’re saying is that if I upload a really big file, the theme will only display the size it needs, and not anything larger?

    Has anyone else had experience with using this plugin? I know others have mentioned it on these forums.

    Many thanks,


    Perfect, thanks Ismael.

    Just one question, though… what HTML code would I use in order to replicate the row of dots that automatically extends across the whole width of a column, just like under the ‘QUICK LINKS’ heading? Just wondering…

    Thanks so much,


    Thanks, Ismael, the first solution worked perfectly.


    in reply to: Format 'Single Post from Category' #109059

    Thanks so much, Nick, for your help.

    So, if I want to make further adjustments to the size/style/alignment of the text on that front page, then I can make all those general changes in that same section of the CSS, in the line just after where you put the text-align: left; statement, is that right?

    And, according to your statement about making styles of paragraphs of a certain class, then I can just change the style in the CSS as well, is that right? Sorry, newbie question!

    Thanks also for your other comments re: <strong>. I’ll keep that in mind as I work out how to use CSS.

    Thanks again!

    Fantastic. Thanks!

    in reply to: Hide top header #109139

    Brilliant. Thanks!

    Hi Ismael,

    Here’s the site (under development):

    See the section bottom right under the heading “News Headlines”

    I’ve also been trying to use RSS feeds to bring in content from my own site, but it often gives a time out error. So, if we can get the formatting of inserting posts by category and also pages right, then I can do that directly without using RSS feeds of the page’s own content.
