I have a client asking me to make their current vertical scroll box under the main image into a horizontal one.

The image number varies, is there a graceful way to do this?

No graceful way.
You would have to calculate the total width of the images (UL/LI) and then set the width of the UL to this.

Hello Gary,

That is fine, I can count the images and set the width, can you please help me with the code, lets say that it si 400px wide and I want it to display 200px wide and have a scroll bar for the rest.

Increase the height in .more-views {} - about 130px
Set the width of the ul with inline css

And that's it
