Extra padding in mobile testimonial carousel slider

Recommended Posts

I am REALLY struggling to format the mobile version of my testimonials slider. I've been combing through these forums and self-teaching basic CSS, but I've spent far too much time on this and I'm calling in reinforcements 😂

I have a basic testimonials slider on my homepage and have made the ridiculous extra padding between elements "better" on mobile but can't get it where I want it. Ideally, I'd love the height of each slide to auto-adjust so that shorter testimonial slides aren't constrained to the height of longer testimonial slides.

I also tried to add a button to the carousel, which looked great on desktop (screenshot attached) but was an absolute disaster on mobile, so I pulled it for now. Here's the code I've already got in place for mobile:

/*Mobile Carousel*/

@media screen and (max-width:767px) {
[data-section-id="65a4b0a5e511c65266cb78e3"] {
 .user-items-list {
   margin-bottom: 550px !important;
      height: 70vw !important;
.user-items-list-carousel__slide {
    margin-top: -10px !important;
.mobile-arrows {
    position: relative;
    top: -5px;

Would SO appreciate any help you CSS wizards can provide! Wish Squarespace did a better job with its responsive UX. Thank you in advance for saving me!
