Remove gallery slideshow navigation buttons in wordpress AND change slideshow background colour

    Hi,

    I want to remove or hide the navigation buttons from the gallery slideshow I have on my site. I am using the Oxygen theme and I’m using the free version of WordPress currently.

    I was also hoping to be able to change the background colour of the slideshow from black to something else.

    I have gone into the text editor on the ‘edit page’ section and tried the following code (posted on the support forums in 2015):

    div.slideshow-controls {
    display: none;
    }

    However this code does not make any difference at all. Is there an updated code which I need to be using?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Sam

    The blog I need help with is hollyandthehotrods.wordpress.com.

    Hi there! You can use the CSS editor to customize the appearance of any WordPress.com site. It works by allowing you to add your own CSS styles, which allows you to override the default styles of your Theme. To access the CSS editor, first launch your site customizer then click on the CSS tab to access the CSS editor.

    Note: you must have either WordPress.com Premium or WordPress.com Business active on your site to be able to add custom CSS to your site

    In your situation the CSS you must use to remove the slideshow controls is:

    .slideshow-controls { display: none; }
    .slideshow-window:hover .slideshow-controls {	opacity: 0;}

    and for the slideshow background color ( in this example for white ) :

    .slideshow-window { background-color: #ffffff;}

    If you have any other questions or concerns, please let me know!

    Have a good one!
