Inconsistency in backstretch slideshow pulling K2 item titles

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

Very happy with Zentools2, but we cannot resolve this small anomaly in the backstretch slideshow layout (see screenshot). In most cases the item title is visible in full (even long ones) but on more than a number of occasions we see the top cut off from the expected full display. NB we are not creating a new module from scratch each time, but duplicating an original we have set up, so no settings are actually changed. Any clues? tks Philip

Same module with only assigned items changed. Everything is perfect. No difference if categories or introtext prefered.

Paul, tks, Here are 3 links for you: first has is perfect, second has a very long title cut off, third has a short title cut off. These are not the only ones, but I guess a setting ('Read More'?) might resolve everything.

Hi Phillp,

You could try

#zentools-983 .backstretch-wrapper .backstretch-title {overflow: initial;}

I'm looking at this page

www.deliciousitaly.net/lombardia-accommodation/sheraton-milan-malpensa-airport-hotel-conference-centre

You could try

#zentools-983.backstretch-wrapper .backstretch-title {overflow: initial;}

affecting only this module

You could also

try

#zentools-983.backstretch-wrapper .backstretch-title {min-width: 350px;}
#zentools-983.backstretch-wrapper .backstretch-title li.active {min-width: 350px;}

adjusting the 350px to wider value - I would factor in mobile widths and the height of the other suggestion

Although on mobile you could adjust the font size of the title to make it smaller using media queries

Where do I look to place the above code exactly? Within the module settings?

Lengthening the introtext is a short fix in some cases, but I'll try and apply what you indicated, tks Philip

Hi Phillip,

You would need to add to the template custom.css file

The styles I'm suggesting are overriding the module css and is targeting one module only
