    I am trying to recreate the fade slider as seen here http://www.kriesi.at/themedemo/?theme=avisio on the advance shortcodes page

    I can get the slider to work but i have a size issue. Im not able to set the height in my shortcode. It seems to want to default to a square size. Any ideas?



    On the page you mentioned, this is the css code that controls the dimensions of the slider

    #top .medium_sized_slider, #top .medium_sized_slider .featured {
    width: 576px;
    height: 260px;

    Just play with the above values and see if it makes a difference. You can add it to your custom.css file




    Brillant that worked perfectly, but how can i set this slider to automatically scroll between images?

    Also what happens if i want 2 sliders on 2 different pages with different sized images.




    You can use CSS to target different screen sizes for blocks of pages or specific pages using the classes found in the html body tag.

    Open up a page in your website and view source and look for some class in the body tag that is unique to that page. lets say its class called page-id-225

    you would add another css block as above but make it look like

    #top.page-id-225 .medium_sized_slider, #top.page-id-225 .medium_sized_slider .featured {
    width: 576px;
    height: 260px;

    I am not sure I understand you question about the slider automatically sliding. That should be happening anyways, because as my grandpa always said, a slider that don’t slide ain’t worth a half penny. ;)

    Please explain.




    Brilliant thanks for your answer.

    Course your grandpa was right, unfortunately mine isnt sliding automatically only when i press the little buttons do the images change.

    I’ll try updating that javascript file. which one is it?

    Final question before i bow out and leave you in peace. Suppose i want to have a slider on a page and on a sidebar. What the code i would use for an additional slider in the sidebar?

    Thanks Nick. You’re a star Moderator.



    Take a look here. I would install Enhanced Text Widget http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/enhanced-text-widget/ which allows you to run php/javascript from inside the widget.

    Then take a look at these directions, and just add them to the widget.

    As for css, i can’t answer till there is a css structure and then i would find how its parent css classes look and create a rule based on that to define dimensions of the slider.




    Thanks Nick, i really appreciate all your help.

    Any clues as to why my sliders are sliding automatically (not the homepage version, but the smaller ones on each page). Seems i have to press the little buttons to get the image to change. :(



    Please read the theme documentation (online version: http://www.kriesi.at/docs/avisio/#b11 ). You need to add the autorotation option to your shortcode like:

    [slideshow autorotation='true' ]
