I have generated a slideshow with www.slideful.com and changed the size in the HTML editor to 640x310, but if I make it bigger the HTML box it is in flows over the margins. I would like the slideshow to take up most of the space in the HTML box, but just can't seem to manage to do it. Any advice please?

Hello A

I'm not sure if changing the dimensions of the HTML Widget is the right approach to make your slideshow take up most of the space. You should first test what dimensions would be suitable by dragging another HTML Code Widget to your page and adding this code:

<div style="width: 700px; height: 400px; background-color: red"></div>
This should produce a red rectangular field on your page which gives you an impression of the size you can use with the Style. Adjust the width and height attributes to find the right dimensions.

Once found, log back into your slideful account and edit the slideshow by changing it to the right dimensions. Then use the newly created code to copy/paste into your Yola website, and remove the HTML Code Widget with the code for the red rectangle.

Also, I would recommend to only use images of the same size to display in a slideshow. You should edit them with an image editing tool beforehand in order to make them look more professional. Pixlr.com is a good free image editing online tool to achieve this.
