Can't find source CSS for a style

Hi,

At this URL I have a Joomla website using a Rockettheme template:

http://www.coloradoweb3.com

On the home page, my slideshow has a sliver too much vertical space. In firebug, I identified this line:

<div id="slideshow-spacer" style="height: 430px;"></div>

Within firebug if I change this value to 424px, my problem is solved, but I can't find the file to change. Most of the other styles are connected to style sheet files, but this div doesn't show anything. So I started looking for index.php files, javascript files, etc and I cannot identify where the heck this style is being defined. I found the index page with the slideshow-spacer div, but it doesn't include the height: 430px (!).

Does anyone know how to decrypt Firebug results better than I to identify precisely where this style rule is coming from?

Thank you

Bill

That's because it is setup in javascript starting on line 95 of the "View Source".  You might be able to adjust the '120' value on line 116 to get what you want.

But all that is there is:

#slideshow-spacer{display:none !important;}

That just turns off the display of the div.

The main page file.  It's part of the javascript.

Actually that's not working for all the browser sizes. It works at full-screen and one move down, but Tablet view shows an even bigger gap when i adjust the 120.

The 430px is where the value change needs to occur. Still hunting...

I don't believe you're going to find it.  You must have a bigger screen than I do.  If you adjust your screen size, you will see that 'height' change because of the 'responsive design' module that adjusts the size of images to adapt to the screen size.

yes - but they are fixed values coming from somewhere. At full screen the value is always 430. I agree I may need to change 5 or 6 values, but I'm still in the dark as to where they might be.

You're not going to find them.  Since it is supposed to be a 'responsive design' that automatically adjusts the images, the image sizes are read by the javascript and scaled by some factor that I don't understand.  You will have to find out where the calculations are don and adjust that.
