Problem Description:

The following update removes the title and teaser text from the Azione slider and modifies it to fit full-width. This mod is best used for HD video/video settings above 720p.  If you just want to display one video, it is better to use the Content Widget set to 1 column instead of modding the slider.

Answer:

1. From a local copy of the theme, open slider-widget.php under ocmx/widgets.

2.Resave the file as slider-widget-full.php

3. Change the class names on lines 2 and 4 to something unique, like slider_posts_widget:

class feature_posts_widget extends WP_Widget {
/** constructor */
function feature_posts_widget() {

4. Scroll to the bottom and change the class name on the last line. This keeps your widget from conflicting with the original.

5. The image or video size is controlled by the image arguments found near the middle of the file, which look like this:

$args  = array('postid' => $post->ID, 'width' => 700, 'height' => 390, 'hide_href' => false, 'exclude_video' => $post_thumb, 'wrap' => 'div', 'wrap_class' => 'post-image fitvid', 'imglink' => false, 'imgnocontainer' => true, 'resizer' => '700x390');

Change these to 960 width and 535 height:

$args  = array('postid' => $post->ID, 'width' => 960, 'height' => 535, 'hide_href' => false, 'exclude_video' => $post_thumb, 'wrap' => 'div', 'wrap_class' => 'post-image fitvid', 'imglink' => false, 'imgnocontainer' => true, 'resizer' => '960x535');

Note that the resizer value is dependent on declarations made in the theme’s functions file, so while the width and height can be anything, the resizer must match the theme’s full-width image dimensions.

6. Open scripts/theme.js and change the gallery container height on line 3, highlighted in red below, from 420 to 559:

jQuery(".gallery-container ul").animate({"top": -(new_frame*420)}, {duration: 350});

You should now have:

jQuery(".gallery-container ul").animate({"top": -(new_frame*559)}, {duration: 350});

Now change the content box width on line 4 from 250 to 960:

jQuery(".copy ul").animate({"left": -(new_frame*960)}, {duration: 500});

7. Upload the  modified widget file to wp-content/themes/azione/widgets and the theme.js to wp-content/themes/azione/scripts via FTP.

8. From your WordPress admin panel, go to Appearance > Theme Options  and enter the following into the Custom CSS

.slider {
max-height: 900px;
}
.gallery-container {
float: none;
height: 529px;
width: 940px;
}
.gallery-container ul li {
height: 529px;
}
.slider .copy {
float: none;
width: 940px;
margin: 10px;
}
.slider .copy ul li {
width: 930px;
}

Note: If you want to hide the title and excerpt,
