Slideshow and Menu

    Thank you for your continued work and support on this theme. I love how easy it is to use for someone like me who doesn’t know how to code.

    I have been working on setting up the website for our restaurant but have a couple of questions:
    1. Is it possible to add CSS so the header slideshow on the homepage isn’t clickable/doesn’t lead to a post page? Where do I add the CSS?
    2. How do I make the pictures in the slideshow the same size? I tried having all the pictures be the same dimension and that didn’t work so then I had to keep playing around with size until I got “close”. I’m hoping there is an easier solution that I am missing.
    3. Is there a way to make a top menu item not clickable? Right now we only have a Dinner Menu but eventually we want to have a dinner and lunch menu. I want to have the top menu bar have a nonclickable label of Menu with a drop down for dinner menu (clickable) and lunch menu (clickable)

    No problem! We’re glad to hear you love the Restaurant Theme. :)

    1. Navigate to the “Additional CSS” section in the WordPress Customizer (Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS). Then, add the following style:

    .slideshow .information .headline a {
      pointer-events: none;
      cursor: default;

    That will disable the slideshow link.

    2. When reviewing your slideshow images, I noticed a couple issues:

    a) The images are very small, only about 350 pixels wide. I would recommend that you uploaded slideshow images are at least 1800 pixels wide.

    b) The images do vary somewhat in size, even if only by a few pixels. The difference of a few pixels becomes magnified when your images are so small, because the images themselves are magnified to fill the larger space.

    Long story short, increase the width of your images to 1800 pixels, and make sure the height of all the images is exactly the same before uploading. Then, all images should appear at equal heights in the slideshow.

    3. Yes, this is possible. When creating a Custom Menu, add a “Custom Link” menu item. Within the URL field, enter the “#” symbol. This is referred to a “null” link. It’s a link that doesn’t go anywhere. Then, you can add your “Dinner” and “Lunch” menu items as child links (submenu items) beneath the null “Menu” link.

    You can view the following screenshot for reference:

    I hope this helps.
