The theme Objective by Edge Themes I’m using has a front page slider which crops once I change the screen size. Which means that on a mobile device the photo has different dimension than on a horizontal screen. It crops the image, where I want to keep the aspect ratio and just see it sized down.
I’ve tried to change it by adding the following code to the Additional CSS
But it doesn’t change anything.
I’ve also tried the additional code to give the slider round edges, and that works fine. So I got the right class selected.
I did ask the author, but they just said “Such an option, unfortunately, does not exist within the theme. Achieving this would require changes in template files, which is not included in item support, sorry about that”
I can’t believe it isn’t something that can be changed with CSS, but when it can’t, there should be a simple thing in the code there can be changed to change the cropping of the image to fixed ratio.
It can’t be that difficult if you know where to look. When I had a different theme in the past, it was always solved very quick and easy by telling me what code to change or to add.
But they tell me I need payed services for that which start at $2000 for the cheapest. That’s way out of my budget for such a small thing.
So that’s why I hope someone with more CSS or coding knowledge can help me here.
From what I understand, depending the importance of the details, at some point, theme may need to be modified but it shouldn’t cost that much. You can contact me if you’re in need of customization. We need to clarify few things first then I can send an offer
PS: If what you need to change the background-size, you can try as below, it should fix your problem:
I’ll check on the website, to see if there are more things now that might need change after this. but all seems to look and work fine.
I’m going to have a busy month on personal stuff, but I’ll know where to find you if I need it later on. Thanks!
