    Hi all

    Could someone please tell me how to change the size of the portfolio slideshow container?



    Hi samtim,

    Do you want to change the amount of space the slideshow takes up in the Ajax portfolio (same page portfolio) or on the single page portfolio?

    What do you want to happen to the other column for the portfolio content (meta data and text in the visual editor)?




    Hi Devin

    Thanks for the response. Basically, i’ve noticed a deterioration in image quality (blurry) with the Ajax portfolio. On closer inspection, it looks like my Ajax portfolio is slightly wider than the single page portfolio where the image is pin sharp. I’ve run the WP Thumb Regeneration with no success.

    Do you know what could be causing the slight difference in size?



    I’ll need to take a look at your site live. Its probably a slight difference in the ratio of the image size which is cause the theme to stretch the image just slightly in a unexpected direction.


    it’s still on my local machine at the moment. Is there a way I can get something to you? Or provide you with any more information?

    Thanks Devin



    The AJAX portfolio is using this thumbnail on functions.php

    $avia_config['imgSize']['fullsize'] = array('width'=>930, 'height'=>930, 'crop'=>false); // big images for lightbox and portfolio single entries

    You might want to change the width and height then regenerate thumbnails.




    I’ve tried doing that. What i’ve also noticed is when the Ajax portfolio initially loads the column thumbnails, the images go slightly blurry too. This is the case with the Ajax large portfolio images too.

    Any ideas?




    You can generate new thumbnail size. On functions.php, find this code

    $avia_config['imgSize']['logo'] = array('width'=>465, 'height'=>220); // images for dynamic logo/partner element

    Copy and paste it below. Then change “logo” into something else example “new-portfolio-thumb”. Set the width and height. Now go to includes > helper-templates.php and find this code.

    $slider -> setImageSize('fullsize');

    Replace it with our new thumbnail size.

    $slider -> setImageSize('new-portfolio-thumb');

    Regenerate thumbnails, remove cache and reload the page. See if it works. Suggested width and height is 581x387px respectively.




    After lots of trial and error – it looks like it’s Firefox that seems to blur the images! Safari is pixel sharp. Haven’t tried IE as of yet.

    I would still like to understand how to change with width of the Ajax portfolio though?

    Any help would be most appreciated?

    many thanks all.


    Hey samtim,

    Sure thing! Its actually pretty simple to just change the column size. For the Ajax portfolio, the function is in includes>helper-templates.php. Just search for:

    echo "<div class='inner_slide'>";

    This is the start of the div that gets created. Just below that you can see the two_third first class that will hold the slider and then the one_third to hold the text and title. You can use any of the column classes in grid.css lines 220-230 though some may need a bit of adjustment.




    You’re a gentleman. Thanks Devin.
