Slider and text widget issue after 1.6 upgrade

  • Anonymous



    #sidebar1, #sidebar2 {
    margin-left: 0px;
    margin-top: 0px;

    Is the CSS to edit your padding/margin for sidebars on the right.


    Not sure if this is the correct way but it seems to work if you really want your borders.I know I was told not to mess with the widths as far as columns and posts since Graphene’s new update made this possible in the options settings.

    .featured_slider #slider_root {
    border-left: 1px solid #000000;
    border-right: 1px solid #000000;
    width: 630px;



    OK, I’ve finally freed some time to get a clean, updated backup of the site and start the trial and error process again on the test site (running Graphene 1.7 and located at

    Thanx, Tee, for the margin code. That suggestion allowed me to fix the width issues on the test site after commenting out the width and using the Graphene width option to adjust column widths as Prasanna suggested. It’s now a consistent 10px spacing around the content areas within each column.

    Now, although the slider content is correct, I’m still having issues with the left/right slider border. We don’t want a solid border as Tee’s suggestion would implement. We’d like it to look like the original site at (running Graphene 1.5.6).

    I think the rest of the issues we have I can adjust if we can just get the slider border squared away.

    Any suggestions?

    To restore the slider borders as they were pre-1.6, add this to your child theme’s style.css file:

    .featured_slider #slider_root {
    width: auto;
    margin-left: 20px;
    margin-right: 20px;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 5px #000;
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 5px #000;
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px #000;
    .container_16 .slider_post {
    width: 580px !important;
    .slider_nav {
    right: 20px;

    You would have to adjust the width portion accordingly if you modify the site’s width in the future.



    Awesome, Syahir! I’ll try it later today and post the results back if I have problems.

    Meanwhile, as I’ve told others, you have one of the cleanest themes out there and with the help of now Prasanna and Josh, the forums are still working even as the installed base grows.

    Thanx for your fantastic help over the last year!




    As expected it worked perfectly, Syahir.

    Once again thanx for a great product and outstanding service/support!
