Quick questions regarding slider, header image and blogpost.

Hey, thanks for a really great theme. I do have some questions here which I hope you can answer.

  1. First is regarding the slider, is it possible to set this one so that it is the same size as in your demo? I want this as a fixed size, since I have noticed it automatically resizes itself. But the size you have in the demo is just perfect. I just want it to retain that size on all images, without the auto resizing. Is this possible?

  2. My second question is: Underneath the title of the blogpost we have Date/Commen information. Is it possible to add author in front of those. So it would look like: By: Owlando ’ May 5, 2017 ’ Leave a comment.

  3. My third question is if it is possible to use a header image and make it responsive, and fill the width of the page. Kind of like the header in this theme: http://volthemes.com/demo/?theme=Marlin
    Or if this theme wil get a boxed layout option in the future?

It would be so nice if this was possible without having to do a loooot of changes.

Thanks for great support, I love this theme.

Best regards

Hi Orlando,

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

1. First is regarding the slider, is it possible to set this one so that it is the same size as in your demo? I want this as a fixed size, since I have noticed it automatically resizes itself. But the size you have in the demo is just perfect. I just want it to retain that size on all images, without the auto resizing. Is this possible?

To achieve this please set all slider images of size 1290px X 400px

Hello again, I am now making the other ones in separate posts.

But again, with the slider. I know the image size, but I want the whole slider to have that size as a set ratio. Not changing, so that it always remain at that size no matter what picture I upload. Sometimes I upload from my phone, and I cant just resize each and every header image so that it fits the slider. Or I can, but it takes too much time. So please is there a way for the slider to maintain that size?

Best regards
Orlando

To achieve it you have to develop custom code as described in the following topic.

https://colorlibsupport.com/t/setting-different-image-for-slider/

Is this really the only way now?
I got a mail from you guys a long time ago with some code that let me set the height of the slider myself.
Is this not possible anymore?

Thing is, I lost that code snippet, so I wonder, can you post it here again, or have you made changes so that it wont work anymore?

Are you taking about the css code shared in the following topics?

https://colorlibsupport.com/t/white-background-on-sides-in-slider/
https://colorlibsupport.com/t/slider-keeps-changing-height/

Yeah the one with the sizing of height was one of them. But when I set it to 350, the whole description area disappears. Also I want the slider to follow the page layout, now it goes beyond the borders of it. So I had to deactivate it.

How can I manually set the sizing (height and width) and also position it so that it stretches from the center, and not the left corner as it did when I tried the previous code.

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of the latest version of Sparkling theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

.flexslider {
    max-height: 350px;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 1060px;
    max-width: 100%;
    margin: 0 auto;
}

.flexslider .slides img {
    max-height: 350px;
}

hello,
whatever I do, the slider will not work.
Is it actually possible for the current version of sparkling? all updates have been installed.

@kh73 You will get current version of Sparkling theme from Sparkling – WordPress theme | WordPress.org
