Height of slider

I tried looking araound here as I want to change the height of the slider
img.single-featured {
max-height: 120px!Important;
width: auto!Important;
Placed it in the themes css section and nothing changed
what am I doing wrong

I found a plugin called simple image sizes that fixed the problem

Actually that didnt work so I have to admit defeat
spent several hours diffrent plugins etc etc
I really wish it was a paid theme then I could jump up and down but ist free so no recourse chers anyway

UGGGGGH I wish I could just give up and fail like everyone else
I have actually gone back to the slider that comes with sparkling I tried about a dozen diffrent ones and for one reason or another they didnt work
I really have to find a more flexible standard theme
So In summary
I would like to be able to control EASILY (not degree form MIT control) the height of the slider
and display the posts and be able to add or not excerpt.

Hey there,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

/*height of slider*/
img.attachment-activello-slider.size-activello-slider.wp-post-image {
    height: 300px;
    width: 100%;

Slider Edits:
Setup Featured Slider For Homepage
-Sparkling theme relies on Flexslider image slider which is built in into theme and no plugin is required.
-Slider Settings are located in Appearance >> Customize >> Sparkling Options >> Slider Options
-To enable slider tick checkbox and you will see that two no options will appear “Slider Category” and “Number of slider items”

  • Select category from dropdown to use for slider
  • Now select number of slides to be used in slider (newest Posts from that category will be used)
  • Make sure you have Featured Images uploaded and added for those Posts.

Note: There’s no way to edit the text, displayed, but you can hide the excerpt with CSS

/*hide slider excerpt with CSS*/
.flex-caption .excerpt {
    display: none;

Best regards,

Thank you that was very helpful. I found that I needed to put the "width: 100%; " at 20% when I reduced the height to 200px.
I feel really guilty asking all the se questions of a free theme. But …
If I needed more adaptability in a slider is there one that you suggest works well with sparkling?
I tried about 20 diffrent ones all had one issue or another to get then to function correctly with the theme.
It would be good if there was one that worked as well as yours but with much easier functions
Like the amount of images to display on screen at once?
The distance form the top (after top Menu)
things like that

Hello there,

The default slider would work the best but you can try the following slider plugins:
