    The slideshow in the content area is scaling images…why?

    I changed the style.css to make the slideshow area larger than the default settings, yet the images are being scaled down 12px in both height and width.

    Below is the code that I believe controls this slideshow function:

    /*smaller slideshows in content area*/

    #top .entry .feature_wrap {

    padding: 0 0 35px;

    position:relative;

    width:940;

    }

    #top .medium_sized_slider, #top .medium_sized_slider .featured{

    width:940px;

    height:528px;

    position: relative;

    overflow: hidden;

    }

    #top .entry .slidecontrolls {

    display: block !important;

    bottom:-12px;

    left:437px;

    position:relative !important;

    z-index:10;

    top:auto;

    }

    .featured_inside {

    overflow:hidden;

    position:relative;

    width:940px;

    }

    Hi!

    All your slideshow images have different sizes – please try to regenerate your thumbnails with: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

    Does it matter how the images are resized? Edited the images in photoshop and reuploaded via FTP:

    Resized all images to 928 x 516 and the images display fine without the odd flicker/repeating/scaling behavior.

    However, the CSS still specifies 940 x 528…

    Hi cmagliane,

    The CSS for that slider is set to be 940px wide by 528px so that it fills the entire full width container. With the regenerate thumbnails plugin, the thumbnails are regenerated to follow the directions from the functions.php which specifies the 940 by 440 image size for fullsize pages and the mainpage slider. If you wanted to use have images with a larger height, you would change the data in functions.php then regenerate the thumbnails with the plugin so that new sizes of images are created for the theme to use.

    Alternately, you can do what you have done and replace the images manually so that you have absolute control of all thumbnail and other sizes.

    Regards,

    Devin
