Hello again, I posted last night I was having trouble in my theme Choices getting my slideshow to display. It ended up working fine in Firefox but when I tested in Google Chrome this morning, I get an error ‘page cannot be found’ on the site home page — http://www.nwregionalswat.com
I have the home page set properly in my settings and it works fine on Firefox — can you please help?March 24, 2013 at 1:31 pm #112213
Wow do I feel dumb again… somehow in my Settings –> Reading area, my home page was actually MISSING. I have no idea how it would load on Firefox if it was actually missing, but it was. I had to remake it and add to the settings, and now it works fine.
I do have another question in regards to the slideshow picture size — is there a way to shrink the height of the images? I know it would take some editing work to keep it proportional, but right now my images are so large you have to scroll the site to see them in full on that slideshow; I know they are stretched because some are not very big to begin with.
I checked the slideshow.css settings but they seem to be on the smaller side, with a stretched height of 377 px, but they are displaying much larger. I am kind of new to this as you can tell, just making the site as a favor to a great bunch of men and wanted to make it as perfect as possible. The site is at http://www.nwreginalswat.com, if you can help at all it is much appreciated :)March 25, 2013 at 1:22 pm #112214
It looks like you did exactly what i would have recommended: change the way the slideshow gets displayed from will width to showing them as they are now :)

Hi Devin, thanks so much for the reply… what I did was I changed every single picture in size to fit that display. Some are distorted which I don’t like, but I had to make every one of them 960 x 440 in order for them to display evenly.
If you know of another way to do this — you said to change the way the slideshow gets displayed, from full width — where would I make that change?
Thanks!March 27, 2013 at 2:57 pm #112216
I actually misunderstood what you were saying but I was referring to the slideshow layout which can be set in the meta box under the visual editor (Slideshow Options).
Re-saving your files into smaller height is the main and best way to keep the height from being too large. Additionally, you could use a plugin like: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-image-sizes/
To change the size of the featured images if needed be, but more important set them to Crop so that they crop to the specific height instead of scaling. Then regenerate your images using the same plugin.
