Swiper Button Customization

Go to solution Solved by tuanphan,

Hi! I'm trying to minimize the width between the two arrows on my home page slider. I got the code from Will Myers' tutorial which was super helpful!

Basically I'm looking on how to better customize the navigation/buttons for the sliders. In the embedded code, I've customized the HTML to this: 


<div data-wm-plugin="section-slider" 


And then, I've targeted the arrows to at least make them smaller and remove the shadow in Custom CSS:

[data-section-slider] .swiper-button-next::after, [data-section-slider] .swiper-button-prev::after {
  text-shadow: none;
  font-size: .8em;

But beyond that, I'm really just looking to bring the arrows closer together in the middle. Any help would be appreciated!

Attaching the desired look!


** Would also be interested in finding out how to change the arrow symbol as well? Just out of curiosity for future projects. Right now, the arrows appear to be a font. Attaching an arrow example below.

@tuanphan It should be the home page! I may have been playing with it. I also added a similar styled one on the About page.
