How can I make a gallery block fill it's container

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm wondering if there's a way to make a "gallery block" in slideshow format fill the space the block is talking up. I've read that gallery blocks haven't been updated to take advantage of the fluid engine, but I hope there's a workaround. It looks great at certain screen sizes but when you shrink the window the spacing becomes all out of wack (see screenshots). Lastly, I know I will use this element on other pages so ideally if the change can be universal rather than directed at a specific div that would make my life a lot easier!

On smaller screens, looks like it is shrink to maintain the image ratio, do you want to crop image in order to fill its container?

Yeah, I'm more than okay with it cropping into the photos in order to fill the container! Do you have any recommendations?

What's the page url
