  • Adding content before and after the logo ?

Slider

  • what dimensions for my slides? The optimal slides dimensions are 1170px in width and 500px in height. When you upload a picture with other dimensions than those, the theme will automatically resizes the pictures (without stretching theme) to fit the slider default dimensions

  • create a slider?
  • darken transparency of slider text box background?
  • make the slider scroll, even when the mouse is over it?
  • Understanding why my slider gets cropped?

Migration issues

Update issues
