    Sunil, the excerpts is something controlled separately from the height of the slider. Are you using an excerpt plugin by any chance?

    Sunil,

    Did you add the following code to your CSS?

    #genesis-responsive-slider {
    height: 320px;
    }

    It worked for me in Firebug. Once you make the change in the CSS and save it, you will need to purge your cache and refresh your page so that you are seeing it with the changes. W3 Total Cache is a great plugin but during development you need to keep clearing the cache to see the “live” version of the page.

    Sunil, I used Firebug to add height: 500px to the #genesis-responsive-slider in CSS and it worked. Could it be that you are just not seeing the changes due to cacheing? Are you using a cacheing plugin?

    Anita, I used Genesis Simple Hooks to try it in the -genesis_after_content_sidebar_wrap. The suggestion you make is effective to place the home-bottom-message text on every page; but the problem still remains on how to add that full width background (only to that section)?

    Susan and Anita — thanks for your assistance with this. Much appreciated. Here is a link again to the site in progress: http://www.englishscholar.ca/wordpress. The section I want to display on every page is the home-bottom-message directly above footer 1, 2 and 3 area (it has association logos in it with a full width gray background). Here is the CSS code I have right now:

    .home-bottom-message-wrap {
    background: url(“http://www.englishscholar.ca/wordpress/wp-content/themes/legacy/images/home-bottom-message-bkgd.png”) repeat-x scroll 0 0 transparent;
    /*  border-top: 1px solid #eee; */
    clear: both;
    color: #666;
    line-height: 30px;
    /*  padding: 40px 0 0;    */
    padding: 0px 0 0;
    height: 138px;
    }

    .home-bottom-message-inner {
    width: 960px;
    clear: both;
    color: #666;
    line-height: 30px;
    text-align: centre;
    margin: 0 auto
    }

    For home php the code is:

    if ( is_active_sidebar( ‘home-bottom-message’ ) ) {
    echo ‘<div class=”home-bottom-message-wrap”><div class=”home-bottom-message-inner”>’;
    dynamic_sidebar( ‘home bottom message’ );
    echo ‘</div><!– end .home-bottom-message-wrap –></div><!– end .home-bottom-message-inner –>’;
    }

    For functions.php the code is:

    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    ‘id’            => ‘home-bottom-message’,
    ‘name’            => __( ‘Home Bottom Message’, ‘legacy’ ),
    ‘description’    => __( ‘This is the bottom section of the homepage right before the footer.’, ‘legacy’ ),
    ) );

    Thanks.

    Hi Susan,

    I did try it myself on my own page; but, when I use the simple hooks and place the code here: genesis_before_content_sidebar_wrap, it doesn’t include a full background width — it is sized to 960px. I would like the welcome message to be exactly as it is now (repeating background full screen width) with text 960; but on every page. Using your suggestion, is there a way to get the background full width??

    Yes, I have registered the widget and it displays where I want it on the home page; but the tutorial link doesn’t tell me how to get it to display on all pages — not just the home page. :(

    And for the width I would make it about 1850px wide to allow for a larger screen and then fade it out to left and right to a solid color as Diane has suggested for height. Just remember that on smaller screens part of your image will not be visible. An alternative would be to add repeat to the background code in CSS. Hope this helps.

    Phil, without being able to see the site you are referring to I can only make a few suggestions to code that is likely standard with this slider.  You will need to go to #genesis-slider in your CSS and add the following line of code:

    #genesis-slider {
    width: 100%
    }

    I recommend you use a tool like Firebug so you can see which CSS applies to what. It’s very helpful.

    Right. Thank you for assisting but it still has no affect on the iPad or iPhone. There was a typo above. I did use min-width and 960px.

    Okay, I will try this. Hmmm. I’ve removed all other responsive code that existed in the original theme because we do separate mobile optimized coding for our client sites. Would that be why the code you have given me isn’t working? I added this at the end of my standard CSS:

    @media only screen and (max-width: 600px) {
    .slide-excerpt {
    left: 23.25%;
    }
    }

    Yes, thank you Cathy, this solution works nicely at 23.25% for a full size monitor BUT when the slider resizes to an iPad it pushes the excerpt out of line to the middle of the image and on an iPhone it completely disappears off of the screen altogether. In these cases the excerpt does actually need to be against the left margin. I’m thinking that we will need to add something to our code that the left: 23.5%; does not apply when viewed on a mobile device. Any ideas?

    I have now down so. I hope this helps. I have been unable to create a solution to date that will allow the excerpt to stay to the left in a 960 grid, rather than moving to the left margin of the slider when it resizes based on monitor size. Any help would be so much appreciated.

    I did not resolve it. As a result, we haven’t used the excerpt. If you have some potential solutions, I’d love to hear about them Cathy.
