    Default How do you make a Slider background
    Hi,
    im working on a (not very proffesional) theme and was just wondering: How do I make a custom slider background? I've figured out were to place it, but which size should I use, because I found something about 79x96, but is there an alternative to that horrible, undesignable size?
    Thank You,

    Flozzo

    DANG thats a tough one!!!!
    it seems the background of the slider is not do-able because the iPhone stretches that image.

    your best bet is to have the text inside the slider say FLYNN and have the arrow button be something cool.

    Is this a tron theme?
