    Hi All,

    I have the title color and size changed on my genesis slider thanks to Jen.

    Now I need my excerpt to be larger and white as well. Also, read more is not showing. Am I missing a setting here?

    Regards,

    Hank

    are you wanting to make the excerpt size larger and background white, or are you wanting to make the font color white and font size larger?

    nice to see people from my surrounding areas here! good job with the site so far!

    Hey,

    Thanks! I just started working with Genesis in November. Pretty nice system so far.

    What I want is a transparent background and white text H3.

    i like too, hank!

    because of the way the responsive slider is set up, you can’t really make the text h3, but you can make it bigger so that it’s as big as the h3.

    add the following into your style.css

    .slider-excerpt-border > p {
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 20px;
    }

    to make the background of the text transparent, you’ll need to add this code to the style.css:
    .slide-excerpt {
    background: transparent !important;
    }

    Hi Ozzy,

     

    That does not appear to be working. Any thoughts as to what might be missing?

    Btw, if you find yourself in Los Altos, shoot me an email and we will meet up for coffee.

    which part isn’t working, Hank? (and yes, coffee is delicious!)

    The text is not larger or white. The transparent background isn’t a problem.

    added an extra letter (sorry about that). try this:

    .slide-excerpt-border > p {
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 20px;
    }

    That did it.  Any idea why I am not seeing a read more button?

    i haven’t actually used the theme you’re working with but here would be my guess:

    it looks like you’re displaying post excerpts in the slider. try adding some content and using the [css]<!–more–>[/css] tag where you’d like the read more button to show, then choose to display content in the slider settings.

    I’ll give that a try.

    Hey Ozzy,

     

    Thanks for that as well. Now I have to figure out how to change the color of read more!

    Its like a cascade.
