    I wonder whether you can help I have followed the help and Have changed the slider height from 440px to 300px

    I have altered the functions.php to :

    $k_option = array(‘width’=>940, ‘height’=>300); // big images for fullsize pages and mainpage slider

    ##################################################################

    # Get Theme informations and save them to PHP Constants

    ##################################################################

    $the_theme = get_theme_data(TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/style.css’);

    $the_version = trim($the_theme);

    if(!$the_version) $the_version = “1″;

    This file is a copy of the orininal and is in my child file

    I have also altered the style.css in the child file

    to /*The heights of the following 3 classes controll the slider height*/

    .slideshow{

    height:300px!important; /*this changes the height of the main image slider*/

    width:940px;

    overflow: hidden;

    position: relative;

    }

    .featured, .fadeout {

    height:300px!important;

    }

    .feature_excerpt{

    max-height:300px!important;

    padding:20px 30px 20px;

    bottom:0;

    display:none;

    font-size:13px;

    line-height:1.8em;

    position:absolute;

    width:250px;

    z-index:3;

    }

    However the images on transition start of OK then get distorted. I have found that if I alter the original functions.php file from 440px to 300px it coorects this but I thought the functions.php file should override this.

    Can you help please I can give you login details

    Hi!

    I think Avisio does not completely support Child Themes (I hit some limitations myself when I worked on my website). I’ll ask Kriesi to look into this issue.

    Best regards,

    Hey! sorry back when I coded Avisio support for child themes was alsmost never requested so the theme is not quite up to par for that. We will probably update avisio in the near future with better child theme support, until then modifying the “real” functions.php file has to be sufficient :)

    Cheers!
