HOME PAGE - Avoiding slideshow crop

This article only applies to the theme Focal.

Slideshow in Focal is using a fixed height on desktop. As a consequence, images are automatically cropped ( what is cropping?). As a consequence, some part of your slideshow images may be hidden.

That's why we always recommend to upload images whose point of interest is around the middle of the image. However, you can disable this cropping feature.


In the list of themes, click on the "Actions" button, then "Edit code":


On the new page, open the blue folder called "Snippets":


Open the file called "theme_features.liquid":


Around line 20, you should find this line:

{% assign theme_features_slider_crop = true %}

Simply change it to that:

{% assign theme_features_slider_crop = false %}

Save the file by clicking on the "Save" button.

Please note that this option comes with its own disadvantages: you will need to make sure that all your images have exactly the same size. Also, you will need to make sure that your images are tall enough so that all the text can be added.
