    Hey guys,
    I’m quiet enjoying Shoutbox for the site I’m creating, but I’d like to know if there is a way to increase the height of the “preview” picture/video that is displayed in the blog template.
    I am using it to display videos and it is very wide, so the videos show large black areas on each side.
    Is there an easy way to increase the height? A quick CSS fix? ;-)
    As always, thanks in advance for your answer, you guys rock!


    Hey unplug!

    Thank you for using our theme.

    Try to put the following in Quick-CSS field and adjust the value:

    .slideshow {
    height: 300px !important;



    Hey Günter,
    Thanks for the fast reply, it worked out perfect on the section I wanted, but it has resized (and distorted) everything else -including the homepage images- which is a bit of a problem ;-(
    Is there a way where that value can be applied to a specific template, or to a specific item? Or a way to specify a percentage instead of a value to avoid having the distortion?
    Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work.



    You could do something like:

    #top .post-entry .slideshow {
        height: 400px !important;
    #top .post-entry.half_post .slideshow {
        height: 200px !important;

    and for just that page:
 .post-entry .slideshow {
        height: 400px !important;
    } .post-entry.half_post .slideshow {
        height: 200px !important;

    Where the id of the page is used to target that specific page (it gets output on the body class).

    Best regards,
