    For some reason, random articles on the front page won’t lineup and throw the “(VM) Mag – 5 Post Style 1” widget off. I have linked a picture of what I’m talking about. I though maybe the titles were too long, or the featured photos were an issue. None of those adjustments made a difference, until I changed the category which pulled those posts out. It only seems to be THAT one box.

    Please let me know if there is something I can do:

    Hi,

    I have visited your site and I have seen that the widget is displayed correctly. I’m glad. Remember that the images must have a minimum width of 576px to be displayed correctly in the widgets.

    Regards.

    Correct. It’s working now suddenly. If we publish a new article it may break again. I have made sure all pictures are bigger than the minimum. I adjusted title lengths. Nothing fixed it until I limited the category. If it happens again, tomorrow I’ll leave it, so you can look at it. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Actually, to be more precise, the images must have a minimum size of 576×432 pixels, since the images are crop with a 4:3 ratio. Therefore if the source image has a width of 600px but a height of only 300px, it will not be displayed correctly. In summary, use at least medium-sized images (1280px wide) to be sure that the images are displayed correctly. If you use small images, the minimum size is 576×432 pixels.

    Regards.

    Ok. I will keep that in mind. It’s currently not working so I’ll check that.

    Juan~

    Thanks for your quick responses, I think we’ve ironed it out.

    One other question. Is there a way to adjust the opacity on the title backgrounds of the widget, so the titles stand out more instead of getting lost in front of pictures with mostly white backgrounds? If not, it might be a nice addition in future updates.

    Thanks again for being so helpful.

    Hi,

    Go to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and paste the following:

    .fondo-degradado{
         background-color: rgba (0, 0, 0, 0.6);
    }

    The first 3 zeros establish the background color (in this case black), and 0.6 sets the opacity. Opacity can have a value from 0 (fully transparent) to 1 (totally opaque). The default opacity value is 0.3. In your case I think a 0.5 or 0.6 would be fine.

    Regards.
