Slide Show Settings within the Html Content Settings

What class controls the Slide Show that is created within the HTML content area?  Trying to make the images centered.

Is the page I'm trying to get to work:  http://test.dsatallahassee.org/buddy-walk.aspx

Here's the html for that area: just highlighted everything in the editor and selected 'center text' but that did not work.  I added the following to the stylesheet to create the black box as a test:

.sponsor
{
text-align: center;
border: thin black solid;
}

Re: Slide Show Settings within the Html Content Settings

Try pulling the "style" declaration off of your <p>s. In firebug I see a lot of extra directives in element.style, like "left: 0", which is going to interfere with centering, and I'm thinking those may be coming from defaults because you have a style declared inline. If that doesn't help, you could also try changing from <p> to <div> to enclose each image in the slideshow.

Re: Slide Show Settings within the Html Content Settings

Hey Jamie,

(UPDATE:   After more review the jQuery is placing inline style on it and the "Position: absolute" is the problem.  But I'm unable to loacate where that is pulling from to change it.)

Thank you for the reply... I not sure where the left: 0 is coming from because that is not in the HTML I placed.  Below you will see where I updated the code from <p> to <div> and it made zero changes.

Now, if I turn off the slide show all the images are centered.  So, do you know what style sheet the slide show css is in?

Re: Slide Show Settings within the Html Content Settings

Hi Mark,

Check out the source on this page http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle/center-horz.html.

I would remove the <center> tag and anything else you have done to make the images center as they may interfere with the css that the page above recommends.

HTH,
Joe D.

Re: Slide Show Settings within the Html Content Settings

Thanks Joe...

I added the following and it worked great.  YAAAA!

 /* give slideshow some style */
.sponsor { margin: 20px auto; width: 300px; height: 250px; background-color: white; }

/* give each slide the same dimensions */
.sponsor div { width: 300px; height: 250px; background-color: white ;  }

/* make sure each slide image is centered */
.sponsor div img { margin: auto; display: block; background-color: white; }

Re: Slide Show Settings within the Html Content Settings

does anyone have an example of how to use this built in slide show feature? 

I have confirmed this is in the layout.Master...  <portal:ScriptLoaderID="ScriptLoader1"runat="server"/>

but when I put something like...

<p>  first line</p> <p>  second line</p> <p>  third line</p>

...into an HTML content section with "Enable Slideshow of Elements?" checked, nothing happens...

is there something else that I am missing to use this built in feature?
