Styling the CSS Slider

  • mdixon


    Would it be possible for the theme creator to provide a quick overview of what CSS classes control what in the featured image slider (i.e. What class controls the main slider box? What controls the text area? etc.)

    I had some major customizations to the full-width background image & excerpt slider, and I had the classes figured out in an old version of Graphene (1.5.5), but in the updated version, many of the CSS classes have changed.

    I’ve now had to temporarily disable the slider from my client’s website, and the styling of this part of my child theme is taking a significant amount of time to figure out. The trial-and-error method is getting old, and I’d appreciate any details you could provide.

    The best way to do this is to use the Firebug add-on with Firefox. It’s easy to use, free, and lets you try out modifications on the fly.

    Trial and error will still play a part in everything you do, however. (Sometimes you make some serendipitous discoveries.) To make it easier, you might also consider installing WordPress and Graphene in a local host environment.



    Tried the Firebug tool and got it figured out—thanks for the tip!

    I do still believe that in future versions, customizing the slider layout could be better documented. Just a request! 🙂
