CSS Question

Bootstrap carousel resizing image

Hi I am trying to make a carousel on my wordpress website with bootstrap. I would like to put four block links next to it. I have the blocks there and the images are scrolling fine, However I believe the carousel is changing the height of the image.

I have images (640 x 360) and I made the 4 blocks 90 pixels high. I did this so the blocks would be flush with the bottom of the carousel. Except the blocks are too big. I don't understand what the problem could be. And I have searched through all of the CSS.

Here is my code:

<!--==========================================-->
<!-- Carousel -->
<!--==========================================-->
<div>
<div id="myCarousel" class="carousel slide">
<div class="carousel-inner">

<!--Carousel item 1-->
<div class="item active">
<img src="http://localhost:6054/wp-content/themes/BLANK-Theme/images/material/ej-manuel.png" alt="buffalo-skyline" width="640" height="360" />
<div class="carousel-caption">
<h4>First Thumbnail label</h4>
<p>Cras justo odio, dapibus ac facilisis in, egestas eget quam. Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Nullam id dolor id nibh ultricies vehicula ut id elit.</p>
</div>
</div>

<!--Carousel item 2-->
<div class="item">
<img src="http://localhost:6054/wp-content/themes/BLANK-Theme/images/material/image3.jpg" width="640" height="360" />
<div class="carousel-caption">
<h4>Second Thumbnail label</h4>
<p>Cras justo odio, dapibus ac facilisis in, egestas eget quam. Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Nullam id dolor id nibh ultricies vehicula ut id elit.</p>
</div>
</div>

<!--Carousel item 3-->
<div class="item">
<img src="http://localhost:6054/wp-content/themes/BLANK-Theme/images/material/images.jpg" alt="the-buzz-img3" width="640" height="360" >
<div class="carousel-caption">
<h4>Third Thumbnail label</h4>
<p>Cras justo odio, dapibus ac facilisis in, egestas eget quam. Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Nullam id dolor id nibh ultricies vehicula ut id elit.</p>
</div>
</div>

</div>
<a class="left carousel-control" href="#myCarousel" data-slide="prev">‹</a>
<a class="right carousel-control" href="#myCarousel" data-slide="next">›</a>
</div>
</div>

<!--==========================================-->
<!-- Side Buttons -->
<!--==========================================-->
<div>
<ul class="nav nav-tabs nav-stacked">
<li><a style="background-color: #051223; color: #fff; height: 90px; width: 210px;">Story 1</a></li>
<li><a style="background-color: #051223; color: #fff; height: 90px; width: 210px;">Story 1</a></li>
<li><a style="background-color: #051223; color: #fff; height: 90px; width: 210px;">Story 4</a></li>
<li><a style="background-color: #051223; color: #fff; height: 90px; width: 210px;">Story 5</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

Answer

The default bootstrap is responsive that is the reason why your image is resizing which is because it is fluid. You have two ways to do it

  1. Either give a fixed dimension to your image using css like

.carousel-inner > .item > img{ width:640px; height:360px; }

  1. Second way u can do this

.carousel{width:640px; height:360px;}
