make event slider image darker

Is there a way to make the event slider image dark using transparency or something then when hovering it gets lighter? It’s super hard to read the text on most images we’re putting out there.

      had another question, what determines the height of the slider? I’m getting inconsistent heights. When I refresh sometimes it’s short and sometimes taller. I prefer taller but can’t see where this is determined. Thanks again.

      I removed the event details aside from the date but would like to put them back if I can get the opacity of the black cover to be darker. thanks.

      I am sorry, the access information you have provided did not work for us. Please check them and post the correct login information as a private message, thank you!

      to make it darker add this to



      .evosliderbox.ajde_evcal_calendar .eventon_events_list .eventon_list_event::before {
      background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);

      or add it to

      appearances>>>>customize>>>>>custom css

      Play around with that 0.4 make it 0.6 and it will be darker

      You may need to make it

      .evosliderbox.ajde_evcal_calendar .eventon_events_list .eventon_list_event::before {
      background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4) !important;

      if the above doesn’t work at all

      Also in myeventon>>>>settings>>>>general
      turn on
      write dynamic styles to header

      With height you want to make all the images the same size- that will control the height

      Im not entirely sure where dave added this style


      But right now its overriding the hover styles. So as soon as this is removed the darker image and brighter hover image will show up. I am going to assign this to Dave and hopfully he can answer here quick 🙂

      sorry for the delay mate I went into hospital for my appendix

      check now- it should be darker normally but with mouse over it lightens up


      the bottom bit is not clickable because for mobile it allows easier swiping but I will look more info it
