Is it possible to incorporate this into the code to allow for automatic graphic sizing so the graphics are not distorted?

I try and make sure the first pic in my article is about the right shape, so the main slider images look right, but the preview boxes are 4:3ish so they are always distorted - is it possible to make them 16:9?

Found it in vbcms_widget_cmsfcs_page:

.cmsfcs_{vb:raw id} li.ui-tabs-nav-item a{
position: relative;

.cmsfcs_{vb:raw id} ul.ui-tabs-nav li img {

Played with the bold values till they looked better.

After I installed it and made the widget, I'm getting this error everytime I get to the Widget section - Class 'vBCms_Item_Widget_cmsfcs' not found in /home/fantasci/public_html/packages/vbcms/collection/widget.php on line 234

I was trying to avoid posting my question without finding anyone with the same problem and hopefully finding a solution to my problem. However, after reading all 24 pages related to this mod, I couldn't find any answers. I installed this mod with absolutely no problems. It works like a charm and I love it! But I cannot get it to show more than 2 featured post in my site. I tried uninstalling it (3x) and installing it again. I tried going into the cmsfcs.php to change the "LIMIT 0, 5" but no luck there either. I also checked the configuration through the widget but everything seems to be okay there as well. I'm I missing something?

I hope someone has any ideas they can share. I'd appreciate it! My website is

Is you cache stuck? Try clearing it in "maintenance"
If not then try allocating sections to your articles - not sure if this should make any difference though.

I cleaned out the cache but I still can only see two posts in the slider instead of the five that is supposed to show. I'm not sure what you mean about allocating sections though. Thanks for your suggestion.

In the admin panel, look at your Widget for the slider and configure it. You'll see options to choose which "sections" appear in the slider. Any articles that have not been assigned to one of the sections you see in the list will not appear on the slider.

To create "sections" go to the admin panel and in vbulletinCMS, click on section manager. Think carefully - these are hierachical, so articles can only fit in one section, unlike "categories" which are 1+ for an article.

Then when you create an article, choose the "section" you want it to appear in from the list on the right hand side of the article creation page. Go back and modify the sections for your old articles.
