background image grid3

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Could someone please tell me how to get images showing in the big top background on grid3?

I believe I need to be working with the ZenTools Slideshow Flat module, but no matter what I do to it I can't get it to show.

Hi there,

Sorry about the confusing documentation...

If your using the quickstat package the module you need to modify is in the position 'background' and is called 'Background Slideshow'.

If your starting from scratch publishing a zentools slideshow module to the background position should get you on your way.

I hope that helps get you on your way.

I just tried to create the new module, but there is no background position available in grid3.

Hi

yes, I see this is bug. But please, just type background inside module position field and it will work correctly. Our fault is that background is not inside list of module positions, yet it will work once you enter it manually.

Thanks. That works well.

Any tips on what size images are best to use for this (pixel dimensions).

How do you get the grid overlay I see on the demo grid3?

That grid overlay is part of template. If you don't see it, please, add URL to your site so I can take a look.

Thank you

Hi there,

Dimensions of the images shouldnt matter too much as images will be resized. Obviously the bigger the better to avoid pixelation, it just a trade-off between size and speed. I'd suggest something about 1600px wide might be a good starting point.

And yep the overlay seems to be there

How do I get my image to span the full width? On my 1980 px wide monitor, my image isn't filling the entire masthead. (just getting started on this migration to T3 + Grid 3)

sandbox2.xyonet.com/6-cchw/

this just in: after a half hour, the image seems to have fixed itself. must be a caching issue.
